Globally known as Mahatma Gandhi and affectionately called Gandhiji in India, he devoted considerable amount of efforts towards building a new paradigm of education. He called it Nai Talim; Nai stands for "new" in many languages of South Asia and Talim, with its roots in Arabic, stands for "education". Nai Talim stresses lifelong learning and its strong social character, both factors recognized globally today as important, even indispensable.
