Gandhi: In The Mirror of Letters and Quotations

Om Prakash Singh (Compiler)
Synopsis Revered in India as the ‘Father of the Nation’ Mohandas K. Gandhi is also a worldwide icon of non-violent political resistance. Gandhi was born in India and studied law in England, then spent 20 years defending the rights of immigrants in South Africa. He returned to India in 1914, eventually becoming the leader of the Indian National Congress. At that time, India was part of the British Empire and Gandhi urged non-violence and civil disobedience as a means to independence. His public acts of defiance landed him in jail many times as the struggle continued through World War II. In 1947 he participated in the postwar negotiations with Britain that led to Indian independence. He was shot to death by a Hindu fanatic the next year. An advocate of simple living, Gandhi ate a vegetarian diet and made his own clothes; the spinning wheel became a symbol of his uncluttered lifestyle. The book deals with Gandhian thought through letters and quotations. It is hoped that this book will be very useful to general readers and all those interested in then life and works of Mahatma Gandhi.
