Ramesh is serving on the Board of Directors of Ahimsa Peace Institute.  We are passionate about spreading the message of Ahimsa to youth, and adults.   

In a world marked by strife and uncertainty, the documentary “Ahimsa- Gandhi: The Power of the Powerless” serves as a powerful beacon, illuminating the enduring impact of Gandhian Nonviolence on a global scale.

The film introduces us to Mahatma Gandhi and his philosophy of Ahimsa, exploring its profound influence on pivotal moments in history. From Martin Luther King Jr.’s leadership in the American Civil Rights Movement to the Lech Walesa Solidarity Movement in Poland, the Vaclav Havel Velvet Revolution in Czechoslovakia, and the Anti-Apartheid struggle in South Africa led by Nelson Mandela, the documentary weaves a compelling narrative of the transformative power of Nonviolence.

As we grapple with the challenges of our time, the film urges us to reflect on the relevance of Ahimsa in fostering peace and justice. In the midst of escalating conflicts, the principles of dialogue, cooperation, and nonviolent means become imperative for creating a better future for all.

The film features interviews with world-renowned scholars, family members of Mahatma Gandhi, and distinguished Nobel Laureates, including His Holiness The Dalai Lama and Former Polish President Lech Walesa. It draws on the wisdom of iconic Civil Rights activists like Congressman John Lewis and Rev. James Lawson, emphasizing Gandhi’s profound impact on the concept of nonviolence.

The soundtrack, including the original song ‘Ahimsa’ performed by Bono and U2, adds a mesmerizing dimension to the documentary. Through archival footage, photographs, and inspirational songs, the film paints a vivid picture of how Ahimsa shaped some of the most transformative political movements of the 20th century.

As the world grapples with violence and conflict, “Ahimsa- Gandhi: The Power of the Powerless” reminds us that nonviolence is the most powerful tool for conflict resolution. The words of Martin Luther King Jr. echo through the narrative, reminding us that the choice is no longer between violence and nonviolence but between nonviolence and nonexistence.

Written, directed, and produced by Ramesh Sharma, with an esteemed team of contributors, the film stands as a testament to the enduring relevance of Nonviolence in shaping a more peaceful and just world. In these troubled times, “Ahimsa- Gandhi: The Power of the Powerless” invites us to embrace the wisdom of nonviolence and work towards a future where dialogue, cooperation, and compassion prevail over conflict and discord.
