Gandhi and Mao: In Quest of Analogy

Ratan Das (Author)
Synopsis Both Gandhi and Mao were revolutionary giants. They led their countries from despair to hope. But after their death, both India and China are facing catastrophe in ideological front; in spite of the fact that their ideas stand relevant to the present world. The process of implementation of their thought may vary, but their objectives were same in respect of their concern for the poor and the oppressed. Mao's concept of dialectics that thrived upon conflict and violence has reached a point of saturation in the shape of nuclear weapons. At this stage, the application of such methods as instruments of revolution may lead to total annihilation. At the other end, the forces of non-violence and non-cooperation which are given to us by Gandhi, are lying dormant. It needs to be organized and activated. Mao's ideal to eliminate hunger and poverty have to be inducted into the Gandhian technique of revolution. Then only a new strategy of social change may emerge, which can be able to fight out the rampant exploitation and inequalities among human beings that exist all over the world.
