Standing up for Democracy and Freedom during Emergency Dhirubhai Mehta is a relentless crusader of democracy and freedom of India. He has always being critical against any policy by any government which is against the democratic principles and also any decision by any government which does not ensure Social Justice. He believes in participatory democracy at the grassroots level and encouraged women and other weaker sections of the society to participate in decision making, and take an active part in local governance.
He is at home with any common man and also residing in villages and slums.
Dhirubhai has been an active follower and a grass root level guardian of Gandhian philosophy. He is as comfortable talking to a villager as much as with an articulate and suave scientist- strongly believing in what he does and what he stands for..
