Mango Lassi & The King's Dream!

"We must be the change we wish to see in the world!" Gandhi What do these words and the delicious Indian drink of chopped ripe mango, yogurt, honey and cardamon have to do with Gandhi? Well, I first heard these words from Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Mohandas Gandhi in Memphis, Tennessee at an Indian restaurant. My friend Kay MacKenzie introduced me to this great man.
