In times of turmoil, if one looked up to Gandhi’s views, one would certainly come across a saying or two or a life lesson that could show the way out. Gandhi had his own worldview on almost every aspect of life. In these times of changing health and disease profile of the nation, Gandhiji’s views on health, which are often not discussed in the mainstream, perhaps have a lot of relevance. If he was alive he would have turned 150 this year. He wanted to live for 125 years. For a man who did not just experiment with truth, but also with his health seeking behaviours, perhaps he would have certainly crossed that land mark year.

Abstract


In times of turmoil, if one looked up to Gandhi’s views, one would certainly come across a saying or two or a life lesson that could show the way out. Gandhi had his own worldview on almost every aspect of life. In these times of changing health and disease profile of the nation, Gandhiji’s views on health, which are often not discussed in the mainstream, perhaps have a lot of relevance. If he was alive he would have turned 150 this year. He wanted to live for 125 years. For a man who did not just experiment with truth, but also with his health seeking behaviours, perhaps he would have certainly crossed that land mark year.
