January 30, 2018 marked the 70th anniversary of the death of Mahatma Gandhi. The society commemorated this event with a public exhibition of books and posters related to the lives of Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. King and Nelson Mandela on March 29, 2018 at the Columbus Metropolitan Library in Downtown Columbus, Ohio. Mrs. Madhu Kumari Singh, Ohio Civil Rights Commissioner delivered the Keynote Address. Senator Sherrod Brown, Congresswoman Joyce Beatty, Consul General of India Sandeep Chakravorty and many other dignitaries sent their congratulatory messages on this occasion.
Throughout the day, a large number of library members and visitors saw the exhibition of more than 200 books of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. King and posters of their lives. The visitors’ interest in the books resulted in a brisk sale of books.
A notable feature of the exhibits was a set of philatelic posters of stamps and other philatelic material on Gandhi and his life from all over the world. This exhibit drew considerable interest from the visitors.

This movie with Ben Kingsley as Gandhi won eight Oscars with Kingsley as the best actor was shown to a large appreciative audience.
This movie shows how, in six different countries and situations other than India, the force of civil disobedience, nonviolence and love proved to be more powerful than brutal violent force of battles and wars. Of particular interest is the story of Denmark which, after being runover by Hitler’s Nazi war machine, refused to cooperate with their captors and through negotiations, civil disobedience and nonviolence escaped the butchery of Nazi forces. Denmark ultimately escaped major war destruction and was able to save the lives of more than 7000 Jews.
