Lecture on ‘Gandhian Ideology for Ethical Business Practices’
 
It is wrong to think that business is incompatible with ethics. I know that is perfectly possible to carry on one's business profitably, and yet honestly and truthfully.’
 
- Mahatma Gandhi
 
Mahatma Gandhi is the most well known Indian in the world. His life was one of dedication and simplicity and he valued non-violence, truth and purity of means as the guiding principles of his life. Mahatma Gandhi displayed the ability to lift the question of morals from that of the personal, and transform it into a question that reflects and impacts the ethics of all of humanity. There are few among the 20th century leaders who can measure up to the standards set by Mahatma Gandhi in the practice of ethical leadership. Mahatma Gandhi proved that moral and ethical behavior is inexorably linked to the sincere understanding and practice of the philosophy of truth, nonviolence and purity of means. The value based leadership espoused by Mahatma Gandhi in public life is a perfect model to be emulated in all spheres of our activities. If Truth is relevant, Gandhi is relevant. The Mahatma has inspired many and given them the strength to be the change they want to see in the world.
