It is considered that Romain Rolland was one of Gandhi’s first and most effective European popularizers. Rolland took an interest in Gandhi in the years after the First World War, when he was seeking new ways out of the dire situation in which European Civilization found itself. Their friendship came to a climax when Gandhi visited Rolland in Switzerland, after his journey to London for the Round Table Conference in 1931.
The distinguished scholar and translator, Chinmoy Guha will deliver a talk on Gandhi & Rolland : A Quest for Peace in Troubled Time.
