Portrait in India ink by V.N. O'key

Vinoba Bhave was a great innovative experimenter in Gandhian techniques. He placed reliance on the Gandhian philosophy of change of heart and used the instrument of moral appeal of the Bhoodan (donation of lands) movement to secure land to the landless to satisfy peasants hunger for land. The Bhoodan movement initiated by Vinoba Bhave created a social climate to land reforms and their smooth implementation.
