Love Island star Dr Alex George has called on government to take ‘action’ on mental health education in schools.

Among the many legacies of Mahatma Gandhi that we have largely failed to actively inherit as a nation – cultivating an ethic of love is one major area. Let us try to locate the ethic of love in Gandhi’s teachings and attempt to cultivate the ethics of love.

In the introduction to “Hind Swaraj”, ‘A Word of Explanation’, Mahatma Gandhi
