‘BapuGeetika- Songs for the Mahatma is a platform for disseminating songs of and for Mahatma Gandhi. A compendium of 108 songs that celebrate Gandhi, its intention is to take this music and connect people with Gandhi’s life and message across India and beyond. It comprises the works of 100 luminary poets in 14 Indian languages set to music, spanning 70 years from Gandhi’s life time to the present. We speak with Kalpana Palkhiwala, retired Deputy Director of Indian Ministry of Information & Broadcasting, who conceptualised and worked on the project. The conversation marks the beginning of 150th birth anniversary of the Mahatma.
