Gandhi Bhavan in Bangalore

Recently I happened to go to Gandhi Bhavan to cover an event. It was only a couple of months ago that I heard that Bangalore has something called the Gandhi Bhavan but had no idea where it was located. Neither did my father when I asked him how to get there (we all expect dads to know everything, don’t we?).

It’s unfortunate that on Kumarakrupa Road, Chitra Kala Parishad (CKP), Sindhi High School or even the Janata Dal office are the only names that come up but never Gandhi Bhavan which is right next to CKP and opposite Sindhi High School. The building has now been extended to house the Khadi and Village Industries institution.

    Vaishnavi, nice seeing you there and thanks for these inspiring and peaceful pictures. Did you notice the Vallabh Niketan (named after Sardar Patel obviously!) adjacent to this building? It’s a serene, green campus which houses some senior citizens and children. I’ll try to trace its history sometime.

    Thanks for posting this blog and letting people know on the Gandhi Bhavan. I got to know about this place 2 years back and went around the beautiful campus. I could also meet few of the Gandhian disciples and could get to listen to some of the inspiring talks! I was not even aware of this building till then. Obviously we seldom get to hear on good things!

I had arrived at this experimental township on the same noon, curious to know and understand how this township is experimenting in human unity. I had done my prior booking with a vehicle rental service agent belonging to Aurobindo Ashram in Pondicherry who was suppose to drop me off at Auroville along with a bunch of other travellers and bring me back to…

The Me, My gadget, My video generation

On a highway leading to a cold, cold city, a two-wheeler rider was mowed down by a speeding lorry on a hot morning. He pleaded for help, without even realising that his body was torn into two pieces. That he donated his organs even in such a painful situation while he counted minutes for his own death, is history now. How do we know all these? Because we had most conclusive proof—a video, circulated over internet and on TV channels. The incident happened in Nelamangala highway. Reports say the ambulance reached him in eight minutes, and he was alive for…
