Abstract

In this materialistic world and in the age of information technology reformation coupled with world terrorism and in the age of globalization, the Gandhian philosophy is more and more relevance all over the world today. Gandhi was a freedom fighter, a philosopher, a moralist, a spiritualist and above all a practitioner of truth. Though Gandhiji cannot be worshiped as God yet we need to understand his manifold teachings and also examine how his philosophy and Hindu ideology could be implemented meaningfully in contemporary world. Particularly the virtue of non-violence as practiced by Mahatma Gandhi is more relevant today. Gandhiji’s teachings can be used as a potent weapon against war, bloodshed, terrorism and other violence activities. The character of Gandhiji and his philosophy needs to study from different perspectives. In this paper, an attempt is made to reflect Gandhian philosophy and Hindu ideology, reflected in some novels of Indian English writers like R. K. Narayan and Raja Rao. The objective of this paper is to showcase the impact of Gandhian philosophy upon Indian people during the Indian freedom movement as described in some Indian English novels.
