Today turned out to be one big farce," said prominent Israeli settler leader Yossi Dagan on Wednesday.

    Gandhi's Last March: A Parable for Today

    There is something that comes to haunt us in our present state of callousness towards truth and human suffering. For Gandhi, there was no consideration - not even the country's unity - that could permit compromise with truth and concern for the poor, the oppressed and the persecuted.

    Mahatma Gandhi in Cinema: A Book Review

    "As it turns out Gandhi's ideals of non-violence and reconciliating enemies came under major strain when Pakistani army men in the guise of Tribals invaded Kashmir in 1947.
