In this breathtaking companion to the award-winning Grandfather Gandhi, Arun Gandhi, with Bethany Hegedus, tells a poignant, personal story of the damage of wastefulness, gorgeuously illustrated by Evan Turk. At Grandfather Gandhi’s service village, each day is filled, from sunrise to sunset, with work that is done for the good of all. The villagers vow to live simply and non-violently. Arun Gandhi tries very hard to follow these vows, but he struggles with one of the most important rules: not to waste. How can throwing away a worn-down pencil hurt anyone? How can wastefulness lead to violence? With the help of his grandfather, Arun learns how every wasteful act, no matter how small, affects others. And in time he comes to understand the truth of his grandfather’s words: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”

My Book is about becoming a SPIRITUAL CHANGE in this world. But first we must become a change within our selves. We, as individuals hold the key to change within our own spiritual blueprint we came to earth with. We are spiritual beings living in the material world, to experience life and to grow by resolving blocks in our minds. We come to earth to learn what we need and to rise in consciousness. God has many mansions, and we are looking to increase our ability to receive more of God's light. The pain of life is only for us to learn from, and rise above. When we rise above, we can receive more of God's light. When we see life differently, when we see the true value of what we can become, we no longer fear life. We experience it and grow and become more.

This wide spread disease of corruption can only be cured by a total revamp of its political, investigative and prosecuting systems. What we are seeing all around us today is nothing but loot. Loot of very high scale to the extent we can’t count the number of zeros. And as this started to unfold with the Commonwealth Games exposure, it got my goat. I started to be a part of a collective voice which became louder by the day. At times very shrill, not by choice, but by compelling circumstances. But all for one common cause---a well governed India--- a better India which makes us all prosperous and our next generation secure. This is the spirit behind this collection. If the corrupt can unite for their vested interest, why we, the victims, not unite for our own selves? Be the change! Be The Change fighTing CorrupTion Kiran Bedi Kiran Bedi has been a courageous voice on police and prison reforms, women empowerment, serving the underserved communities, leadership issues in management and governance, now more focussed on corruption.
