On The Table Read Magazine, “the best creativity magazine in the UK“, award winning documentary, The Land Of Ahimsa, follows Dolly Vyas-Ahuja advocating for a renewal of ahimsa to solve India’s escalating spiritual, health and environmental problems.
Land Of Ahimsa
The Land Of Ahimsa is a new documentary, streaming free of charge on UnchainedTV, following journey that Dolly Vyas-Ahuja takes to save her ancestral land. The granddaughter of a freedom fighter, Chhaganlal Joshi, who collaborated with Mahatma Gandhi to fight for independence and social justice, Dolly Vyas-Ahuja advocates for reviving ahimsa to address India’s growing spiritual, health, and environmental issues.
At the London Film Festival, The Land Of Ahimsa recently won the award for Best Documentary Feature. Drawing rave surveys, the film has likewise won Best Documentary at the Hong Kong Worldwide Film Celebration, the Boston Autonomous Film Celebration, WRPN Global Ladies’ Film Celebration and the Cineville Calcutta Worldwide Cinefest. The film likewise includes Maneka Gandhi, a member of India’s lower house of parliament.
This documentary aims to reestablish the meaning of ahimsa—respect for all living things and nonviolence—in India. The idea that all living things share a spiritual energy serves as the basis for the Land Of Ahimsa’s careful examination of the word’s meaning, which dates back approximately 4,000 years. Thusly, to hurt another is to hurt oneself.
Dharmic religions, such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism, all place a strong emphasis on ahimsa. However, this film demonstrates how India has lost touch with its purpose. As the film makes sense of, notwithstanding its enormous vegan populace, India is seeing an ascent in the abuse of animals, particularly those in the food system. India is thought to be the largest milk producer in the world, producing nearly a quarter of the world’s milk, according to reports.
While cows are broadly viewed as sacrosanct in India, this film uncovered the institutional savageries of India’s dairy industry that oppose the lessons of Mahatma Gandhi who said “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”
India is known as the diabetes capital of the world. The film shows how this emergency is associated with the populace’s rising consumption of dairy products. India is viewed as the world’s biggest consumer of cow’s milk. In the film, specialists make sense of how an ever increasing number of vegetarians are experiencing diabetes because of increased diary consumption. Meanwhile, methane emissions from industrialized animal farming are contributing to the effects of climate change on the planet as a whole.
