Fellowship Takeaways

Highlights of the February 2020 Fellowship

Date – 8th to 15th February, 2020

9 senior leaders; 9 magical days; innumerable life-changing journeys

The journey of discovering this Mahatma called Gandhi, diving deep into his life, getting glimpses of this extraordinary man and leader, his steely resolve, his complete devotion to truth, touched all of the fellows who participated in this 9 day experience deeply. As each of them moved through each day, they sensed so much of Gandhi’s love that opened within them too and they realized how this amazing man could make miracles happen and shake the largest empire by having them see their own unfairness whilst evoking their highest selves.

In the end, when each Lead Like Gandhi Fellow finally discovered his/her life’s purpose, it was a magical and sacred moment. To finally know and totally embody what they are here to do in the world, and tie that up with an unfinished business of Gandhiji, and declare it in the courtyard of where Gandhiji lived, was just an incredible experience.

Testimonials

 To say this program is transformational is an understatement. It has the power and energy to shake you inside out, and send you in your journey, emotionally aroused, self-aware, towards accomplishment of your purpose. Today, Lead Like Gandhi is the reason that I’m meeting new people, seeking synergies, designing initiatives, all aligned to the rediscovered purpose of my life. Imagine if a critical mass of beings on this planet were to have gone through this program. What a beautiful world it would be!

Vivek Talwar, Former CSO of TATA Power

Before enrolling into the Lead Like Gandhi Fellowship program, I had no clear direction where I was heading towards though I knew my life’s purpose was to serve the under-privileged in our society. The 9 days course has not just helped me find true purpose of my life but has also enabled me in defining a clear roadmap towards achieving the goal. The experience was truly out of the world and has taught me how relevant Gandhian values and principles are even today and how the same could be applied in our journey of life.

The leitmotif of Gandhiji’s message really is: that morality and selflessness must guide our actions and, if we are able to steadfastly stay the course in this respect, success will come.
