Blunders of the World

Posted on: January 21, 2009

“I don’t know why I’m still gaining weight, Doctor. I eat healthy and walk the dog twice a day.”

The Seven Blunders of the World is a list that Mahatma Gandhi gave to his grandson Arun Gandhi, written on a piece of paper, on their final day together, not too long before his assassination. In his final years, the elder Gandhi kept his grandson close at hand and set aside an hour every day to be alone with the boy.

  • Wealth without work
  • Pleasure without conscience
  • Knowledge without character
  • Commerce without morality
  • Science without humanity
  • Worship without sacrificePolitics without principle
  • Rights without responsibilities [Arun Gandhi]
