Abstract:

A biography of Mahatma Gandhi that discusses his principles and purposes, his ideas and actions, his religious and political aims, and his disciples.

In this book, the renowned author Ved Mehta brings Gandhi to life in all his holiness and humanness, shedding light on his principles and his purposes, his ideas and his actions. Through interviewing disciples of Gandhi in five countries, Mehta reconstructs in precise detail Gandhi's daily routine, recounts the story of his life, and presents the beliefs and practices of his "apostles." Mehta's book is widely praised and is a biographical portrait of Gandhi unlike any other. -- Publisher description
