Seven Blunders of the World – Mohandas Gandhi

I stumbled upon this list while googling for the 7 wonders of the world. It is a list written by Mohandas Gandhi for his grandson (Arun Gandhi) shortly before he was assassinated.


The 7 Blunders:

  • Wealth without work.
  • Pleasure without conscience.
  • Knowledge without character.
  • Commerce without morality.
  • Science without humanity.
  • Worship without sacrifice.
  • Politics without principle.

And, I think he just about covered everything……

Adding to this list, Arun Gandhi added an eighth blunder,

  • Rights without responsibilities.
Arun Gandhi, His Holiness The Dalai Lama and Martin Luther King Jr III on the same platform at the same time for the first time ....
