Topic-Specific Language: Ahimsa

Dr. Shankar tackles a fascinating topic in this exploration of the language of non-violence, अहिंसा. The presentation is framed as a detailed walk-through the famous story, Siddartha and the Swan. The presentation concludes with two longer video clips related to ahimsa. The first video is a humorous clip from the Bollywood comedy about modern-day Gandhi-giri Lage Raho Munna Bhai MBBS; the second is a Hindi documentary about the commemoration of Gandhi and non-violence. You can view the presentation online, or download it as a PDF or a Powerpoint presentation.
