Gandhi is one of the most well known revolutionaries of our time. Many have embraced aspects of his philosophies, not necessarily realising that his vision was purely for India (including today’s India, Pakistan and Bangladesh). If anything, Gandhi shows how a purely nationalist vision can be embraced worldwide and be inclusive.
Gandhi spent some time in the East End of London after his time in South Africa. During the 1930s he met with Charlie Chaplin, the actor. An interpretation of this encounter is captured in the full length play by James Kenworth, When Chaplin met Gandhi.
Leslie Tate had an interesting interview with Neil Beardmore about his links with India and it’s only natural that Gandhi should have featured.Share
