“To mark 150 years since the birth of Mohandas ‘Mahatma’ Gandhi, this lecture by acclaimed author Ramachandra Guha reflects on one of the most influential – and controversial – men in modern history. Having come of age in Gujurat, London and South Africa, Gandhi returned to India to lead a path through the most complex of challenges; to deliver his country from British rule, to forge harmony between religions, to end the practice of untouchability, and to develop India’s economic and moral self-reliance. For his revolutionary non-violent tactics he remains a hero and spiritual guide to many, but as a man he was not without his flaws.”

Discoveries and stories of underrepresented scientists are often erased from the history books, when we know they play significant roles in the advancement of science.”
