Hindol Sengupta’s intriguing title of a five column article in the Deccan Chronicle Saturday 05, 2019 reads ‘Everything you heard about Gandhi and Capitalism is wrong’. And in the article Hindol states “...when I was writing Recasting India, I discovered what I think of as the greatest lie ever told about Gandhi...that he was somehow against business, against enterprise or against entrepreneurship...”
Films don’t just only stir our imagination, they become mirrors to society, educate us, and inspire us too. So the choice of films for the monthly film screening programme of IASE, Cinema Talkies were films on the life of Gandhiji...The simple rationale being that if Hindol made a discovery ...won’t the viewing of films on Gandhi help understand the father of the nation better through multiple perspectives.
This time the special invitees for the screening were the NCC cadets of Govt.Model HSS,Thrissur. The screening commenced after a brief talk on Gandhian ideals by Sri. Jagadeeshan of the Gandhi Smaraka Nidhi.
