Arun Gandhi's childhood days under South Africa's apartheid for someone of Indian heritage was considerably difficult, humiliating, and often violently abusive. Like many Indians, he was demeaned by Europeans for not being white, and ostracized by Africans for not being black, and subject to racially-motivated violence from extremists in both groups. This led to a series of resentful and angry teenage years. While living with his grandfather; Mahatma Gandhi from 1946 until his assassination in 1948, Arun experienced the most tumultuous period in India's struggle to free itself from British rule. Both the events and Mahatma Gandhi's teachings strongly influenced Arun. When Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated in 1948, Arun felt such anger that he wanted to take revenge upon the assassin. Then he remembered his grandfather’s words: "Never react immediately in anger". Called a messenger of peace, Arun Gandhi; Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson, has dedicated his life to spreading his grandfather’s teachings around the globe. Christina Blodgett, Director of Customer Relations for Blogtalkradio is our Special Co-host.

The Interview with Opera Composer Carla Lucero by Judy Jones in "On the Road With Judy!" is dedicated to the silenced voices of female composers throughout history.  May they speak forever more through the pens of writers and poets all over the earth.  The last
female commissioned opera was in 1903 by the New York Opera Company.

Carla Lucero's first opera; "WUORNOS!"; was based on the life of serial killer Eileen Wuornos. Carla had hoped by writing this opera, she would save the life of Eileen who was on death row at the time of the opera's premier. But fate had other plans and Ms. Wuornos was put to death.

Ms. Lucero's second opera; "Sor Juana" is due to premier this year; 2009!

I hope you enjoy the interview I did with Carla in  "On the Road With Judy!".

Judy Joy Jones Show with John Lennon lover; May Pang discussing 'Instamatic Karma: Photographs of John Lennon'


Beatle John Lennon & his wife Yoko Ono's personal assistant in the early 1970's was May Pang. May was working for the Beatles management company; ABKCO and hired from there by John & Yoko. On the advice & with the approval of Yoko Ono; John Lennon and May Pang became lovers from 1973-1975!

According to legend; it was when Lennon was unhappy and unproductive; estranged from his family and band members. John Lennon is the most famously photographed Beatle, yet May Pang's beautifully sensitive photos capture a side of John we have never seen before.

In May's book; "INSTAMATIC KARMA: Photographs of John Lennon"; www.instamatickarma.com, her photos show Lennon clowning around, working on his hit album "Walls & Bridges" & hanging out in their Manhattan apartment.

"There were times I was a bit reticent in taking out my camera, like when some 'old friends' stopped by to hang out. I didn't want to intrude on these moments, but John insisted. He felt that I captured him in ways no one else did because of his comfort level with me...For years, only my closest friends got to see these photos-which were literally tucked away in a shoebox in my closet. They were surprised that these images did not convey the John that was portrayed in the press during our time together. In fact, they saw a side of John seldom seen" -May Pang.

The book also contains the historically important photo of Lennon signing the ending of the Beatles partnership document.
