The Life of Mahatma Gandhi based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I was surprised at some details from the life of Gandhi. For example, he was not a very good father to his children, and not always a good husband to his devoted wife, Kasturbai. He had flaws, which are usually omitted or glossed over when the subject of Gandhi comes up. All I ever knew was that he was the embodiment of non-violence, that he helped the Indians in South Africa, and that he returned to India to help achieve independence from Britain. His was a much more complex life. This biography is not entirely chronological, and deviates occasionally into the author's own experiences in India, but it relies on many good sources and seems to be an honest telling.
