Abhijat Joshi: The man behind Gandhigiri

Gandhigiri has become part of our vocabulary, and a big chunk of the credit for this goes to Dr Abhijat Joshi.

He, along with director Rajkumar Hirani and producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra, co-wrote Lage Raho Munnabhai, a massive 2006 hit.

Abhijat takes the 'practice before you preach' saying very seriously. He has been teaching about Gandhi, besides doing playwriting, screenwriting, cinema studies and Indian literature in the Otterbein University in Ohio, United States, since the last two years.

Born and brought up in Ahmedabad -- where Mahatma Gandhi's Sabarmati Ashram is situated -- Joshi has been reading about and imbibing Gandhi-ism since his early years.
