You have a choice of which discussion question and film you would like to engage this week.
The Bhagavad Gita is one of the most sacred books of the Hindu tradition. The story follows the young Prince Arjun and explores the metaphysical debate that enables him to wage war against his family. How does this presentation of the Hindu tradition differ from how we have come to understand it since the construction of Hinduism presented by his campaign for earning Indian independence through non-violence? Feel free to research this question on the internet.
Gandhi is one of the great historical personages of the twentieth century. Does the film present Gandhi as a hero? If Gandhi was a hero, why would a member of his own religion assassinate him? Why was Gandhi a controversial leader in India? Feel free to research this question on the internet.
