Description

Gandhi has been the subject of over a dozen well-regarded biographies. Yet key aspects of the man still prove elusive. In this book, the author, a grandson of Gandhi and an acclaimed biographer and scholar, attempts to understand the phenomenon that was Gandhi. This he does by examining in detail dominant and varied themes of Gandhi's life - his unsuccessful bid to keep India united; his attitude towards cast and untouchability; his relationship with those whose empire he challenged; his controversial experiments with chastity; his views on God, truth and on-violence; and his selection of heirs to lead a new-born nation.

Exciting insights...I must have the book with as much eagerness and excitement as nay gripping novel. Makarand Paranja[pe, INDIAN REVIEW OF BOOKS

Rajmohan has rediscovered Gandhi for us. From this book emerges a portrait of Gandhi which is unconventional and yet very convincing. THE PIONEER
