The webinar will be on "Experiment of Mendha(Lekha) towards Gram Swaraj & learning from it” where Mohan Hiralal would share his journey in Menda’s Gram Swaraj which is a successful experiment that is convincing people that Gandhian politics can lead the world towards a humane society based on equality and non-violence.
