February 8, 2008

An essay by Dr. Ramesh Rao, Professor and Chair of the Department of Communication Studies and Theatre, was recently published by The Pioneer, one of the oldest Indian newspapers, published from New Delhi. The essay, “Not Gandhian, or is it?,” is a shortened version of an article by Dr. Rao that appeared in UPI’s Religion and Spirituality Forum, for which he has written a weekly column since February 2006. The article, which can be viewed at http://dailypioneer.com/indexn12.asp?main_variable=EDITS&file_name=edit3%2Etxt&counter_img=3, is about controversial statements by Arun Gandhi, grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, which forced him to resign as president of the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Non-Violence. Dr. Rao’s main page at the forum can be accessed at http://religionandspirituality.com/columnists/columns.php?FixtureID=rrao
Also, Dr. Rao was one of two speakers at a program Feb. 5 in Toronto sponsored by the Hindu Conference of Canada and the Speakers Action Group. Dr. Rao, representing the Hindu American Foundation, on whose executive council he serves, and Rabbi Roy Tanenbaum of Toronto presented a program on “Hinduphobia & Antisemitism: Common Issues.”
