Mahatma Gandhi was a universal icon par excellence of truth, integrity, love and compassion. He was an epitome of non-violence, and his fondness for the well-being of humanity knew no bounds. He is the non-violence ambassador of India and Indianness across the globe. Many nations drew – still drawing – spirit and inspiration from him to achieve their freedom and to eradicate many a social malice from their society. He is a legacy of virtue and human value.
This coffee-table book makes one pictiorially travel through the different stages and realms in Gandhi’s life from him being a normal human being to a stature of a mahatma. Rather, from him being a child, a professional young lawyer to a towering personality in Mahatma Gandhi, the Indian political, social and spiritual leader who caused/forced the mighty British to give India, a country which was a treasure house for the British, Independence. It showcases the true image of the different facets of his life.
A mere glimpse across the book, brought out by the Gandhian Society, New Jersey, USA, on the occasion of Gandhi’s 150th birthday, makes one understand what Gandhi was and why is he so special to not only the Indians, but to any sane person throughout the world.
