This Thursday, Ankur Shah is coming to speak about his book “Sometimes We Walk Alone” which is the result of his journal entries and reflections from the 26 day pilgrimage he took in 2006 when he decided to walk in the footsteps of Mahatma Gandhi from Ahmedabad, Gujarat to the ocean at Dandi, a walk that Gandhi did in 1930 to protest the British tax on salt. Ankur brought nothing with him except a notebook and only asked humans for water.
“I wanted to see what was left of Gandhi’s ideas, footprints, culture in the Indian countryside, and took to walking in his footsteps as the most honest and direct means of understanding this great and complicated human.”
