American pop-singer, actress and model – as Wikipedia describes her, Lindsay Lohan has possibly found strength and solace in Mahatma Gandhi's teachings.
On January 2 at about 5.03 am Lindsay Lohan tweeted, "Today is the first day of the rest of my life. Then quoting Mahatma Gandhi, she added, 'The future depends on what we do in the present.'.. one step at a time".
The Father of the Nation is no more. But his teachings, philosophy and beliefs continue to inspire and hold in awe everyone who but stops to listen. And the latest 'believer' is none other than Lindsay Lohan, if her 'tweets' are to be believed. Lindsay Lohan who has been in the news for her 'alcohol-related' problems recently 'failed' a drug test and said that she was prepared to face the consequences. Lohan has been taking active interest in India after her 'alcohol-related problems' got the better of her even earning her time in jail. She has been desperately trying to stay on the right side of the law and so far seems to be making a brave effort.
A report in a US tabloid said that Lindsay Lohan has been spending a lot of time reading Mahatma Gandhi's "An Autobiography of My Experiments with Truth" and has read the book over and over almost 3 times. She was also part of a BBC Three documentary titled Lindsay Lohan's Indian journey which deals with human (and particularly the girl-child) trafficking in India. Lindsay Lohan and the BBC team filmed the documentary in India which aired in April 2010 and she visited a couple of Women's and Children's homes in Calcutta. These visits changed her outlook about India, the people of India and Indian philosophy and culture in general. Like most American self-absorbed celebrities, Lohan probably considered India a distant and remote land. The US tabloid article says that the documentary may not have been a 'great hit' but it surely changed Lohan for the better.
