Gandhi: Be the change you wish to see in the world!

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others." -Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi, one of the greatest spiritual leaders of the 20th century, led a 30-year campaignof non-violent resistance that eventually led to Indias freedom from British rule in 1947. This was thefirst time in history that a nation was able to gain independence through non-violence.


Even after his death, Gandhis application of universal ideals of love, truth and justice, have inspiredmillions of people, including great leaders such as Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela.

Today, we live in a time of dualities where we have made unimaginable progress in the scientific andtechnological dimension, but have much difficulty progressing in the human dimension and cultivatingour inherent human values.

On the eve of Gandhi Jayanti, the South Asian Arts Council and New Acropolis invite you to join us in a philosophical dialogue on the following:

  • How did Mohandas Gandhi, an ordinary man, transform himself into Mahatma Gandhi, one of the greatest spiritual leaders the world has ever seen?
  • How did he translate the knowledge that he encountered into the wisdom he lived?
  • In our modern world, how can each one of us be the change we want to see in the world?

Bob Ryan discusses Scribe: My Life in Sports

Harvard Book Store welcomes renownedBoston Globesports reporter BOB RYAN and the host of NPR'sOnly A GameBILL LITTLEFIELD for a discussion of Ryan's bookScribe: My Life in Sports.

Ever since he joined the sports department of theBoston Globein 1968, sports enthusiasts have been blessed with the writing and reporting of Bob Ryan. Tony Kornheiser calls him the quintessential American sportswriter. For the past twenty-five years, he has also been a regular on various ESPN shows, especiallyThe Sports Reporters, spreading his knowledge and enthusiasm for sports of all kinds.

Born in 1946 in Trenton, New Jersey, Ryan cut his teeth going with his father to the Polo Grounds and Connie Mack Stadium, and to college basketball games at the Palestra in Philadelphia when it was the epicenter of the college game. As a young man, he became sports editor of his high school paperand at age twenty-three, a year into hisBoston Globeexperience, he was handed the Boston Celtics beat as the Bill Russell era ended and the Dave Cowens one began. His all-star career was launched. Ever since, his insight as a reporter and skills as a writer have been matched by an ability to connect with peopleplayers, management, the reading publicprobably because, at heart, he has always been as much a fan as a reporter. More than anything,Scribereveals the people behind the stories, as only Bob Ryan can, from the NBA to eleven Olympics to his surprising favorite sport to covergolfand much more. It is sure to be one of the most talked-about sports books of 2014, by one of the sports world's most admired journalists.

notloB Music Presents... RUSHAD EGGLESTON (21+)

Legend, clown, goblin, cello-shredder, acrobat. Wild "jazz" vocalist, bundle of laughs, writer of hit songs in other galaxies, Ambassador of Sneth. Inventor of bluegrass cello, time traveler, creator of worlds. Pentecostal dancer, proprietor of igwarfnees, president of Norwegian Ostrich Society, winner of some contest in 1725.

There's more to a Rushad Eggleston show than fantasy, though. His show is a performance, complete with flashy gallivanting, intricate playing, wild storytelling and some of the most unique sounds ever produced on a cello. It isn't chamber music, but it isn't bluegrass, rock or folk music, either. Much like Sneth, it's whatever Eggleston wants it to be... Eggleston isn't just weird for the sake of being weird. [His] playing is dynamic and complex. His right hand bounces from bow to plucking with indefatigable precision and the fingers on his left hand scuttle across his cello's neck like a tarantula jigging it up. The music is upbeat, playful, well-composed and as diverse as Sneth is ever-evolving. Eggleston is constantly developing new cello methods and writing new material... "It's every musician's duty to fill the world music that they wish was in the world," Eggleston said. "It's your job to put that music out there. I'm really just representing a lot of sounds that I like."
Shaun Kittle ~ The Adirondack Daily Enterprise

Rushad Eggleston presents himself as an ambassador from another world, and it can be easy to believe him. Onstage, the cellist and fountain of off-kilter creativity looks like an overgrown elf in his pointed cap and brightly colored stretch-pants. His songs are populated by strange characters and littered with inscrutable neologisms, with story lines sometimes taking place in an imaginary world he playfully calls the Land of Sneth... But behind the boisterous showmanship and dogged weirdness is a natural talent who netted a Grammy nomination while still an undergrad at Berklee College of Music. It's been rare to find players who can really move around on the cello with a lot of facility in an improvisational way, says cellist Eugene Friesen, whos won three Grammy Awards himself ...and taught Eggleston as a faculty member at Berklee. ...Its thanks to a handful of pioneers who have really been out there trying to push the envelope. And Rushad is one of them."

Alan Doyle discusses Where I Belong

Harvard Book Store welcomes musician, songwriter, andlead singer in the Canadian folk-rock band Great Big Sea ALAN DOYLE for a discussion of his memoir,Where I Belong.This event includes a book signing.Those in attendance will be able to purchase a book at the event.Featured event books will be for sale at the event for 20% off. Thank you for supporting this author series with your purchases.

InWhere I Belong, Alan paints a vivid, raucous and heartwarming portrait of a curious young lad born into the small coastal fishing community of Petty Harbour, Newfoundland, and destined to become a renowned musician who carried the musical tradition of generations before him and brought his signature sound to the world. He tells of a childhood surrounded by larger-than-life characters who made an indelible impression on his music and work; of his first job on the wharf cutting out cod tongues for fishermen; of growing up in a family of five in a two-bedroom house with a beef-bucket as a toilet, yet lacking nothing; of learning at his father's knee how to sing the story of a song and learning from his mother how to simply "be good"; and finally, of how everything he ever learned as a kid prepared him for that pivotal moment when he became part of Great Big Sea and sailed away on what would be the greatest musical adventure of his life.

Filled with the lore and traditions of the East Coast and told in a voice that is at once captivating and refreshingly candid, this is a narrative journey about small-town life, curiosity and creative fulfillment, and finally, about leaving everything you know behind only to learn that no matter where you go, home will always be with you.

John Stoddard and Courtney Hennessey partially funded the project by raising $24,000 on Kickstarter and hosting fundraisers. The pair now split their time caring for the farm, which is in the first of two phases.

The Boston Design Centers roof spans 55,000 square feet, but for now, Higher Ground covers roughly half of the space. Over the next year, plants will be grown in individual milk crate planters. Stoddard said phase two will likely roll out next March, and will include the installation of green roof beds.

Once that happens, Higher Ground will be the second largest open-air commercial roof farm in the world, behind the 65,000-square foot Brooklyn Grange urban farm in New York

COST: Please bring a $10 contribution with you for the farm.

Also, there is some climbing of stairs to the roof and make sure to wear appropriate clothes for the weather.

Who benefits from the status quo? How deeply are the current power structures embedded in our political economy? How difficult will it be change them? Tim Weiskel moderates the public discussion following her remarks.
