Mahatma Gandhi is the most influential Indian of the twentieth century whose shadows continues to loom large over the century even sixty years after his death. He struggle 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 citizens enjoying equally the fruits of the 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.
To The Reader
I Would like to stay to the diligent reader of my writings and to others who are interested in them that I am not at all concerned with appearing to be consistent. In my search after Truth I have discarded many ideas and learnt many new things. Old as I am in age, I have no feeling that I have ceased to grow inwardly or that my growth will stop at dissolution of the flesh. What I am concerned with is my readiness to obey the call of Truth, my God, from moment to moment, and therefore, when anybody finds any inconsistency between any two writings of mine, if he has still faith in my sanity, he would do well to choose the later of the two on the same subject.
