This concert launches Inner Light’s participation in the “Gandhi King Chavez Season for Nonviolence” that celebrates and advocates social justice and equality around the world. The Cultural Heritage Choir is a Grammy© nominated, percussion driven, vocal ensemble whose mission is to help preserve and share the rich musical traditions of African American roots music. Their music is rooted in the deep south and strongly connected to West African and Caribbean origins. Rev. Deborah L. Johnson, Founding Minister of Inner Light Ministries said, “Linda Tillery and the Cultural Heritage Choir are healers, musical shamans. As educators and cultural ambassadors, they enable us to experience our unity as one people whose roots all trace back to Mother Africa. They help us celebrate our unity and to collectively grieve the ignorance of our interconnectedness. Violence is the fruit of perceived separation and otherness. Lack of compassion is the incubator for hurt, harm, and injury. Weapons can never end violence, only empathy and forgiveness.”

• Emersion of Gandhiji’s remains (ashes)
Gandhi Development Trust

Location: South Africa
A small portion of Gandhiji’s ashes which were brought to South Africa in 1948 have recently been discovered and are now in our possession. According to custom we are not allowed to keep these ashes. They have to be immersed in the sea. We plan to have this ceremony on Saturday 30 January. The ashes will be placed in state at Phoenix Settlement from 4 p.m. on the 29th. People will be encouraged to come and pay their respects and offer prayers at the Settlement. We will be staying there for the night in a night vigil and will leave the Settlement at 4 a.m. We will then proceed to the esplanade to take a boat to immerse the ashes in the deep sea. We have approached the SA navy to assist us in this as well as the provincial and local government and we have been offered assistance and support by both. The SA navy’s and if possible the Indian navy’s participation would have been a great tribute to Gandhiji but time is a constraint and we have not heard from the Ministry as yet. Nevertheless it would be great to have the two Navies assisting with the final rites.

• Gandhi Media Lecture-March/April
Gandhi Development Trust

Location:TBA, South Africa
The date for this event is still to be finalised. We have invited Barkha Dutt, the NDTV journalist to deliver this lecture for 2010. She will be speaking to the Students of Journalism at the Durban University of Technology as well as to a community audience. This is a lecture to highlight Gandhiji’s role as a journalist and his emphasis on ethics in media. As the influence of the media increases with modernisation there is an urgent need to re look at the role of journalists in the community. This is therefore an important initiative taken jointly by DUT and GDT.

• Speech and essay Contest
Gandhi Development Trust

Location:South Africa This event will be held in March 2010, after preliminary rounds in the first week of March. The contest will focus on current issues affecting students among which will be sports and its value in our country and in society, the effects of colonial domination on people vis-à-vis indenture, prejudice and how it arises and what it does to people with specific relevance to indenture and slavery and other topics. These essays are meant to stimulate thought both on current issues as well as on personal development. For 2010 we are focusing on the system of indenture and all the consequences of it. We also focus on the taxation laws to enforce African workers to work in the sugar fields and mines and in homes. These questions will help young people grapple with issues faced by their forefathers no matter of what descent while developing writing and speaking skills. In this project we have a number of educators both as support groups, as organisers and as judges. We have outstanding English language scholars, we have journalists, DUT’s Department of journalism as well as some Gandhian scholars as advisers and judges. This event is an annual event and has been growing each year as more people hear of it and participate in it. During 2010 we are hoping to attract a large number of people to enter this contest. Participation from other countries would be great in the essay competition. We are also encouraging other organisations to run similar contests and then perhaps elect the finalists to gather together. This is a long term plan. The following is a notice sent to all schools.

• Returning to Viet Nam in Peace
San Diego Center for Spiritual Living

Location:San Diego Center for Spiritual Living 1009 G Street San Diego, CA 92101
In 1969, Steve Bates left Viet Nam on a field stretcher as a wounded combat veteran. Since then, the effects and after-effects of those wounds have been a big part of his life as he pursued a greater understanding of what happened to him and what the war was really all about. During that time Steve authored "In Search of Truly Noland" and is currently working on his second book. In 2009, Steve returned to Viet Nam nearly 40 years after the day he last saw it. Steve was part of a group of 10 Purple Heart recipients from the Viet Nam war and found his trip was enlightening in mind and in spirit. He came away with a much better understanding of the war, the Vietnamese people, the country, and the circumstances of his involvement in the whole matter. Steve says his trip was "interesting, exciting, and therapeutic" all at the same time. Having taken over 1,000 photographs on his journey through Viet Nam today, Steve will present a pictorial view and relate stories from some of his many conversations with local people and his guide on March 30, 2010, which is also the first annual Vietnam Veterans Day in California. Join Steve as he presents the beauty of Viet Nam today and the resiliance of her people. Steve will be available for Question and Answer following the presentation.
