happy birthday, Mahatma!

Mahatma Gandhi statue

see his shining knees?  they’re just at shoulder level, perfect for rubbing!  he stands watch over one of the bus terminals in Paramaribo.  each bus circles round him on their way in or out.  often he is festooned with a wreath of flowers.  a truly lovely sight in the middle of the city.


  1. sadly, tonia, i don’t have any specific recommendations. we have been watching the movie in short bits this week.

    i do recommend Blessed Are the Peacemakers by Wendell Berry. it’s just a collection of Gospel verses about peacemaking, along with a good essay by Berry.

    and this morning i found Academic Earth and this class called Nonviolence: From Gandhi to MLK. i listened to the first lecture and it looks promising.
