In Memoriam: Anuradha Ghandy

 It was a memorable and short life. Anuradha Ghandy was born in 1954 and died in 2008. But the length of life is not the criterion. What matters is the contribution that one makes to what is called human civilisation.

What did she achieve, a sceptic asked. The answer is: A lot. Civilisation is a continuum of demolitions and re-constructions which takes it to higher and higher levels. History calls the people who carry on this process rebels and revolutionaries. They demolish the existing structures which are outdated and unjust and reconstruct new structures which serve human beings better. Anuradha Ghandy was an outstanding rebel and an uncompromising revolutionary.
