Overview for Gandhi’s Vision: Freedom and Beyond
Gandhi’s Vision: Freedom and Beyond chronicles the principal events leading to India’s independence under Gandhi’s leadership and his vision of a free India. The book commemorates 71 years of Indian independence and is replete with portraits of the Mahatma in action—invoking the spirit of patriotism, uniting people from all religions, regions and social groups across the country: Hindus, Muslims and Parsis, peasants and landlords, workers and capitalists, the intelligentsia and the illiterates, men and women, the young and the old.
Among those stalwarts who led the freedom movement, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi shines not only for the novel means of non-violence, but also for simultaneously wanting to root out social evils like communal hatred, untouchability and gender disparity. With several such issues espoused by him continuing to dominate the social space, his teachings remain relevant even today.
This book, embodying the above vision, is brought out as a part of Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary celebrations.
