DNA of Peace

As I join the band of authors and peace advocates that wish to spread the Learnings from the life of Gandhi and his message of peace … I was asked if I was related to Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. I am of Indian origin, my father comes from the State of Gujarat the home state of Gandhi, and I can speak a sprinkling of Gujarati and read a few alphabets …. I am sure if I dig deep enough in my family tree I would find the connection … or maybe I can just sit back and seek refuge in the theory of – Six degrees of Separation, that all humans are connected to the other within 6 links of association.

So the question is ….Am I ? Do I share a part of MKG’s DNA ? the answer is yes and so does the entire Human race.

We all share 99.9% of our DNA

It should be called the DNA of Peace.
