Niranjan Ramakrishnan, of Tamil origin but based now in Portland, Oregon, the cutting edge of 21st century technology in the US, seeks to give an answer in his Reading Gandhi in the 21st Century Palgrave MacMillan, New York, ; book is going to be launched in India shortly.
The most appropriate way of celebrating Gandhi Jayanti, it seems to me, would be to distribute the book free to all 12th class children and undergraduates where required in translation, pages for each of the next generation to try to find the answer for themselves. Ramakrishnan juxtaposes two contradictory predictions about Gandhi's continuing influence in the post-Gandhi future, one by Bertrand Lord Russell in and the other by a distraught Nehru in the immediate wake of Gandhiji's assassination.
