In Search of Ahimsa

Nonviolence in Modern Indian History edited by David Hardiman, Hyderabad: Orient BlackSwan, 2017; pp ix + 259, ₹ 1,095.


The cover of Nonviolence in Modern Indian History, a collection of essays edited by David Hardiman, shows Gandhian activist P V Rajagopal addressing a large gathering of the Ekta Parishad in 2007. This can easily lead a reader to expect that the book contains answers to one of the most urgent questions of our times: How can non-violence be an effective counter to hatred and polarisation in contemporary India?

Those seeking clear and direct answers to this question will be disappointed. Instead, this book offers glimpses of past struggles to practise nonviolence which can inform that quest for answers.
