Ravindra Kumar's Writing On Non Violence

By Kamala Sarup

He is Dr. Ravindra Kumar, a writer, renowned Gandhian scholar, Ideologist and a Former Vice-Chancellor of CCS University of Meerut (India). His articles are marching towards non violence and love. It is the same love visualized by Shakespeare or T. S. Eliot. According to Shakespeare to feel loved, belief towards our self and also being able to know our self might be our life. A lot of love and non violence prevails in his writings.

Ravindra's writings, therefore, encompass beauty of tradition, which are narrated from a human's perspective. The meanings of his message are based on humanism. Ravindra's philosophical characters' movement of global peace is very beautiful. It is true; love can pave the way for non-violence. When humanity remains in the books, Ravindra may think about life in a different light and there is also a classified definition of love and non violence. Ravindra's writings are very gentle. He vows for the global peace. A lot of respect to Mahatma Gandhi comes with new perspective and gets new feeling idealistic love. "I always love to write for the people", he says. "You can make their day beautiful. Only a positive attitude makes a great writer", He further added.

In his recent Interview, he emphasized upon adoption of scientific approach to thinking and relating to transformation of conflicts in prevailing circumstances and as per the demand of time. He added.

Dr. Ravindra Kumar believes that good writing demonstrates love and companionship. Ravindra likes to work independently and plans to continue his writing. Ravindra is able to show sensibility, patience, mythical, psychological and companionship through his writing. And it is really a great read.

Besides his non violence work, Ravindra writes and edits for many journal and paper, which advocates peace, non-violence, and the sanctity of life. He has published many articles and books on Mahatma Gandhi and non violence. Recently, an editor Kamala Sarup for Media for Freedom has interviewed him about his work

You have been writing for one decade now on Gandhi, how did you start writing?

Ravindra: It is a long story stating from the days of my study political science at M. A. level. In those days I used to criticize Mahatma Gandhi without any basis. As per the advice of one of my professors I thoroughly studied Gandhi and his philosophy and thus influenced by it started writing on different aspects of his life, views and works.

What for you make a great writer on peace and non violence?

Ravindra: I am not a great writer. I am in the process of learning. At the time of writing on peace and non-violence I feel great joy and satisfaction.

How would you like to be remembered? What is the philosophical ground of your writing which distinguishes you from the rest of the others?

Ravindra: I desired to be remembered as one of the peace worker and writer. Mainly Indian philosophy and way of life are the basis of my writings. What makes me different from others; it is to be judged by others, particularly Kamala Sarup who knows me very well.

What responsibility should writers take to mobilize support from international community and help peace?

Ravindra: Although answer to this question relates to prevailing circumstances, upon one's ability and sincerity etc., but sound, impartial and problem-based writings can definitely be helpful in mobilizing international support.

What books have had a strong influence on you or your writing for Gandhi?

Ravindra: His own autobiography entitled My Experiments with Truth, which has been written with honesty and clarity.

Do you have any suggestion to make to the emerging generation involved in art and literature?

Ravindra: They must bear accountability in their minds. They must touch issues in current perspective with the purpose of suggesting solution in larger interest.
