Gandhi's Human Touch

and Gandhi in which, with the precision of a Professor of Nuclear Physics, he has encapsuled the whole gamut of the philosophies, approaches and methodologies of those two beacons of modern times. Since then one could hardly come across a major speech of Professor Dandavate which did not contain a pointed reference to Mahatma Gandhi. Perhaps, if I may say so, few might have gone so deep into the inner most recesses of Gandhi's thought as Professor Dandavate has done over the years.     

    What follows is the transcript of the moving extempore speech which Professor Madhu Dandavate, Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission, had delivered on "Gandhi's Human Touch", under the auspices of the Jayaprakash Foundation, to commemorate late Shri Jayaprakash Narayan. It was delivered before a distinguished audience at the packed School of Social Sciences Auditorium of the Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, on 22 November 1996. The JP Memorial Lecture function was presided over by Mr. Inder Kumar Gujral, Minister for External Affairs, who in an illuminating speech gave reminiscence of the human touch of Jayaprakash Narayan.     

    The Jayaprakash Foundation is profoundly grateful to Professor Madhu Dandavate and Mr. Inder Kumar Gujaral for making the 17th Jayaprakash Narayan Memorial Lecture function a memorable one.
