Mahatma Gandhi is the most influential Indian of the twentieth century whose shadow continues to loom large over the country even sixty years after his death. He struggled and dreamt of a India free not only from the yoke of the British rule but also free from the evils of poverty, illiteracy, untouchability with all its citizens enjoying equally the fruits of freedom and prosperity.

Many of his revolutionary ideas, termed as idiosyncrasies then, are fashionable concepts followed by today’s generation. And the resurging popularity of ‘Gandhigiri’ is proof of Gandhi’s continuing relevance in the twenty-first century.

This book offers a fascinating peep into the mind and ideas of Gandhi and his dream for a vibrant and prosperous modern India.

 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.
