An Hour With The Mahatma

Dr. Alok Bajpai (Author)

He was that ordinary man who found the extraordinary within himself that made him what he became — a Mahatma. He had a single weapon; Ahimsa. And a single belief: Truth. Simple as all this may sound, Gandhi was not the easiest person to understand. He was often an enigma even to his closest relatives, friends and followers. Dr. Alok Bajpai's book An hour with the Mahatma is a fascinating psycho-sociological inquiry into Gandhi's life and work. Although Dr. Bajpai does not flinch from looking at Gandhi's faults and foibles, he concludes as most of us do that Gandhi was truly the Mahatma. —Shyam Benegal

It is said that one can't appreciate the ocean without entering it. One can't understand it's beauty and discern its mysteries without diving deep into its depths. The deeper one goes the more the ocean reveals of itself and it's on the sea bed that one finds the pearls. 'An Hour With The Mahatma' is an intimate dive into the psyche of a man who discovered his soul and made himself able to listen to the voice of his soul. This book makes us hear that voice too. Dr. Alok Bajpai is the pearl diver who dives into the unfathomed depths of the Mahatma's psyche and discovers the precious pearls which he presents to the reader. This is an invaluable textbook in the discovery of Mohandas who became a Mahatma. It is a must read for those who wish to learn about Mohandas and it is a must read for those who want to teach about the Mahatma. —Tushar Gandhi.
