Gandhian Ideology: A New Paradigm of Developmental Communication

By: Suruchi Upadhyay

Page No : 38-43

With contemporary mode of modus operandi, there are several discourse and ‘ism’, emerged, but the most potent and influential discourse in original form is a Gandhian Discourse. Although, Gandhian Discourse is disconnective genre in emerging new paradigm shift, and recent shades of upcoming literary trends of writings, but every hidden treasure can be dug and pruned to acclimatize intellectual thrust of mind. Mahatama Gandhi, undoubtedly was the most influential and at times controversial figure. Nevertheless, the influence of Gandhian ideas and philosophy affects on a larger scale, both at national, and international fronts. Gandhi, a well determined man, with strong conviction and unruffled thoughts was the only binding force to unit all at equal front for setting our country free from British colonial regime. The utilitarian traits of Gandhiji well proved that ‘united we stand and divided we fall’. The present paper is a sincere effort to point out how Gandhian ideology plays an important role in giving new strength, new confidence to Indian Language by establishing a new kind of Developmental Communication which influences not only individual, but also society, particularly, taking into account two novels Kanthapura by Raja Rao (1938), and Mulk Raj Anand’s Untouchable (1935).
