This is certainly a book, which is more than a book presenting the quintessence of Gandhiji's thought and philosophy and reads like a new Gita, a new Bible.

It is a faithful, authentic and comprehensive presentation of the mind of one who has been described as the greatest Indian since Gautama the Buddha and the greatest man since Jesus Christ and as the greatest man of the 20th century.

About the Author
The great name Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) is one of the most widely recognized in the world. His autobiography has been translated into all the major languages. In the first half of his life, Gandhi suffered from a debilitating shyness. After practicing law in South Africa and India, in his middle and later years, Gandhi was recurrently in contact with the man who would inspire his killing. Gandhi’s life of peace thus always had a tragic dimension. His assassination occurred On January 30, 1948, virtually in conjunction with the declared independence of India and Pakistan.
