essays about my daily life. It will be something about India since it makes me happy and bothers me a lot.

The news of death of the grandson of M.K. Gandhi, Prof. Ramachandra Gandhi, appeared even in Japanese newspaper. M. K. Gandhi is probably one of the most famous Indian for Japanese. (Rests are Nehru, Chad (Sikh Singer who sang a hit song in Japanese and Tiger Jet Singh (Sikh wrestler) )

There was a nice piece by Sanjaya Baru, a media advisor to PM, on Hindustan times of 15th of June. Both of them were teaching at Hyderabad University. Prof. Ram said “I am a Gandhi, not Gandhian” when he declined the invitation from Dalit students for a function of Gandhi jayanti. And he resigned the university since the univ authority forcefully cut neem tree against his appeal not to cut.

I do not know anything about him, but he seems like who has humor at the time sarcastic…but have something like his strong will or belief at the bottom of his heart. If there is any resemblance with M. K Gandhi (though he hated village people came to see him whether he really looks like a statue of Gandhi), it is his strengths and belief in himself to carry out what he think is right.

Descendants of Nehru are still so active in politics. But I like a man who can quit his job for a tree much better than a man who visit villages only for votes!
