"Why Gandhi's pen halted"

"On Gandhi Jayanti, let us aim to express grief for these days’ victims of hatred by remembering their names, unlike the victims of 1947, 1984, 2002 riots and other violent incidents who remain anonymous," writes Rajmohan Gandhi in the Tribune of India.

"The other as foe"

"History is replete with the horrors of us-vs-them narratives." writes Rajmohan Gandhi in the Indian Express.

"Truth, without fear or favour"

"Central government must lead the fight to protect what the killings — of Kalburgi, Pansare, Dabholkar, now Gauri Lankesh — have violated," writes Rajmohan Gandhi in the Indian Express, "The rights to life, belief and expression. The nation is watching."

The Relevance of Gandhi in Contemporary Times

"In Why Gandhi Still Matters, Rajmohan Gandhi helps us understand the Mahatma’s legacy and analyses his ideas of ahimsa, Hindu-Muslim unity as well as his changing stand on the issue of caste." The Wire reviews Rajmohan Gandhi's latest book.

Hyper-nationalism of 2017 is not the nationalism of 1947

"The leaders of the freedom movement," writes Rajmohan Gandhi in the Economic Times, "were inspired by a longing, a dream, to restore the dignity of the vulnerable individual, no matter of what kind. They embraced neither Hindu nationalism nor hyper-nationalism."
