Causing Change - One Student at a time

Two years ago the Tourism department of the Government of Andhra Pradesh provided us with an opportunity to cause change at a historic location in Hyderabad. Ashes (asthi) of the simple man, the world calls Mahatma were immersed here on the 12th of February 1948. ….

730 days later we present some photographs from our first step. The Peace Truth Ahimsa Museum at Bapu Ghat, Langar house in Hyderabad has successfully imparted over 30,000 hours of Gandhian inspired education.



I would like to thank every person who has supported us on this journey of change - The Tourism Department and the Government of AP, Principals & Teachers of schools and colleges in the city of Hyderabad, all the support staff, volunteers and instructors at the museum, finally all the students who have invested hours of integration and allowed us to learn more than just teach.

Photo: From the movie Gandhi (Ben Kingsley) leads his first protest march (Natal - Transval march ) of striking Indian miners in South Africa.

In 1913, a tax had been imposed on all former indentured labourers, known as the Indian Relief Bill. In protest of this, Gandhi launched a passive resistance campaign, gaining the support of thousands of mine workers. While leading a march on 6 November 1913, which included 127 women, 57 children and 2037 men, Gandhi was arrested. He was released on bail, rejoined the march and was re-arrested. The Indian Relief Bill was finally scrapped. In a few weeks it will be 100 years from that faithful day in South Africa, WHEN A SIMPLE MAN, THE WORLD CALLS MAHATMA CHANGED THE COURSE OF HUMANITY.
