Prof. N Radhakrishnan

What the distinguished and world-famous peace activist Mrs. Bagoes Oka from Indonesia said about Prof. Neelakanta Radhakrishnan sums up his extraordinarily eventful life and achievements: "A rare combination of intellectualism and activism, Prof. Radhakrishnan has distinguished in several fields. As an educator, administrator, founder of several educational institutions, author of over forty books, journalist, trainer of youth in nonviolence, theatre expert, actor, human right activist and researcher of folk arts, Prof. Radhakrishnan is an important source of inspiration to a number of innovative initiatives all over the world, especially in the field of training in nonviolence.

The role he has been playing in the global spread of nonviolence by interpreting Gandhian nonviolence creatively and adapting it to the emerging scenario has been widely acknowledged. He has deviated significantly from the traditional or dogmatic interpretation of nonviolence. To him, nonviolence is a creative force of empowerment and not any dogmatic bind."
