Music of the Spinning Wheel: Mahatma Gandhis Manifesto for the Internet Age
By Sudheendra Kulkarni

The question this book attempts to address is: How can Gandhiji be relevant to our times in terms of his spirited advocacy and scrupulous practice of non-violence and universal brotherhood, and be irrelevant on a parameter – the impact of science and technology – that uniquely defines the modern world?

The purpose of this work is not merely to blast away the mountain of misconceptions on this score that survives even six decades after his tragic demise; or just to demonstrate that the moral symbolism of khadi and the charkha (spinning wheel) has an abiding significance for the twenty-first century. Rather, it is also to postulate that the Internet  and all other digital-era technologies supported by it – has the potential to realise the kernel of what Gandhiji had been  envisioning to achieve through the spinning wheel: a new non-violent, inter-dependent, cooperative, sustainable and morally guided world order.
