Gautier is an authority on Indian history and has made several contributions to various Indian and international publications and books. His book Guru of Joy based on his experiences with the internationally renowned peace ambassador Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has won him global acclaim.
French by birth, Indian at heart and by adoption, François began his career as an journalist in India. Having experienced, first-hand, the travails of Hindus in India and around the globe, and come to know of their sufferings throughout recorded history, he metamorphosed gradually into an activist, orator, author, and prolific writer – to wake up the ‘slumbering’ Hindu society, reminding the Hindu’s of their scriptural, cultural and historical grandeur and of their current state of social disunity and apathy.
He is a disciple of Yogi Sri Aurobindo and a follower of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and the power of his pen and his voice reflects the anguish he feels for the Hindus. A true ‘intellectual’ his achievements are stupendous, and it is always inspiring to listen to him.
