The Mahatma Gandhi

Commemorative Banquet

Each year on October 2nd, we celebrate our anniversary as a Foundation and the birth of Mahatma Gandhi with a Banquet featuring a vegetarian meal as well as performances and presentations. Keynote Address by Leslee Udwin, BAFTA and multi-award winning Film Producer/Director. Leslee’s work as a filmmaker includes “East is East”, “Who Bombed Birmingham?” (which led to the release of the Birmingham 6 after 17 years of wrongful imprisonment) and “India’s Daughter” which has sparked a global movement for gender quality. Now a Human Rights Campaigner, she was awarded the Anna Lindh Human Rights Award in the Swedish Parliament, voted Global Hero by Safe Magazine, Global Thinker Award by Foreign Policy, and voted by the New York Times the Second Most Impactful woman 2015, after Hillary Clinton. Leslee is a PLAN Ambassador.
