I congratulate you all on Mahatma Gandhi's 150th anniversary. We have an additional reason to celebrate because we were able to publish - on time! - Mahatma Gandhi: Nonviolence Starting Point. Spherons' Genetics and Statistics, a collection of outstanding articles by GHA activists including my friends, such as Rudolf Siebert, John Avery, Ela Gandhi, Rene Wadlow, Mairead Maguire, Andre Sheldon and more.
Special thanks to you, Leo, for including my article "Mahatma Gandhi and Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn" and also providing the readers with its Russian translation in the parallel Russian collection. The latter is perhaps especially timely as Russia has been lately playing the role of the katechon (from Greek: τὸ κατέχον, "the one who withholds"), that is keeping the balance in view of the dangerously erratic policies in the USA and UK. Let us hope that since the time of Leo Tolstoy the Russians have been learning more of nonviolent philosophy and strategies of Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, and other nonviolent heroes.
As to the GHA's failure to unite and consolidate its membership in search for an equitable solution for the Kashmir problem just remember that it takes a lot more courage and perseverance to find a peaceful solution than to start a war. Gandhi's violent death, his martyrdom remind us that the cause of peace is safeguarded by the heroes.
As you wish, in November, I will take a copy of the Gandhi Book to the USA to be deposited at the Library of Congress, the largest book and digital documents depository in the world. I promise to keep celebrating Gandhi's Non-Violence the whole year!
In Peace and Harmony,
I remain truly yours,
Vladislav Krasnov (see my GHA personal page)

The GHA is indescribably happy to congratulate you on the 150th anniversary of the greatest peacemaker of history and the “incomparably amazing person” (Einstein), who opened the Non-Violence Era saving for humanity - Mahatma Gandhi!
The GHA has been working hard for almost a year, since November 2018, and the wide international campaign “Gandhi World Year 2019”, dedicated to the anniversary of this unprecedented humanist, thinker and political leader of the greatest country in the world, starting with the innovative book “Gandhica” of 82 coauthors (including the President of India and Nobel laureates), a unique book dedicated to him (https://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=848). The presentation and reprint of this unique book is held around the world, in many countries. Their list will be published separately, see below.
The Gandhi merits before Indian people as the “FATHER OF NATION”, and to humanity, its worldwide salvific legacy of non-violence, which, unfortunately, remains incomprehensible and unused until now, have nothing to compare in all human history. The perpetuation and development of the Gandhi legacy in the GHA “Gandhica” is complemented by the creation of the GHA “International Gandhi Committee” of 35 members from 18 countries with an extensive program for many years in key global vectors: Non-violence education; Interfaith harmony and peace; Women's Equality; The science of peace/non-violence; Democracy of Nonviolence (http://peacefromharmony.org/?cat=en_c&key=853). It has been proposed to many governments and international organizations, including the UN, UNESCO, and others, as a series of international culminational cultural and political events.
Now is the time to collect the fruits of the “World Year of Gandhi 2019”, evaluate and analyze them and summarize its results: WHAT did it bring to the treasury of a culture of global peace, harmony, justice and non-violence? This is the final mission of the “World Year of Gandhi 2019”, which we will carry out together, as always.
In this regard, the GHA invites all members and friends, all admirers and like-minded people of Gandhi to inform us during the MONTH, by November 2, of all the events of the “World Gandhi Year 2019” known to you in any country, organization, educational institution, giving their title, place and date, their Internet address or a link to any media outlet.
Your lists of Gandhian events along with your similar plans for the future will be integrated and published with gratitude, with your names and photos as their authors, on a separate page of the GHA “Peace from Harmony” website: https://peacefromharmony.org, which records from 2 to 10 thousand visits daily.
Happy Jubilee to the immortal Mahatma Gandhi and his immortal non-violence legacy!
