Delivered By

?
  • Usually Delivered in 2-3 business days.

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Available'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Out of Stock'

Currently, the item is not available for sale. Use the 'Notify Me' feature to know once it is available for purchase.

'Imported'

Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

'Back In Stock Soon'

The item is popular and is sold out. You can however 'book' an order for the product and it will be shipped according to the timelines mentioned by the Seller.

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for Sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

My Exeriments with Truth: An Autobiograhy (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 220

My Experiments with Truth: An Autobiography, as the name states, is the autobiography of Mahatma Gandhi, covering his life till 1921.

Summary Of The Book

This book, My Experiments with Truth: An Autobiography, is divided into five parts. Each one deals with a stage in Gandhiji’s life, and his evolution from an ordinary man to an extraordinary leader. This book is a reflection of his thoughts and ideologies, how they evolved, and the various factors that influenced his life.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, or Gandhiji, is a name that invokes the vision of a simple, diminutive man who was responsible for many changes in the history of his own country and an inspiration to many great leaders who came after him.

Starting from his childhood days, My Experiments with Truth: An Autobiography proceeds through his days in London, where he studied law to his days in South Africa, and then his return to India when he began to take part in the freedom movement, with his own unique methods that attracted thousands of followers from across the nation.

He started writing this autobiography at the insistence of his colleagues. It appeared in serial form in his publication, Navjivan, originally in Gujarati language. The English translation was later published in Young India. In 1999, a committee of global spiritual and religious leaders picked this book as one of the 100 Best Spiritual Books of The Twentieth Century.

About Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi is one of the most influential personalities in the recent history of not only India, but also the world. He was a simple man whose actions and thoughts inspired billions, and led the country in its quest for freedom.

Some of his other popular books include Story Of My Life, Non-Violent Resistance, and Education For All.

Gandhiji was born in 1869 in Gujarat. He got married to Kasturba Makhanji at a very young age. They had five children, but the first child lived only for a few days. His next four children, all sons, were Harilal, Manilal, Ramdas, and Devdas. Gandhiji was a man of ideals, and his philosophy inspired many people in their fight for freedom and civil liberties. He was a religious man, but he drew inspiration from all religions. His concept of peaceful agitation to accomplish change still inspires people who are looking to bring about a change in the society, especially those who work for a public cause.

Good read of M.K. Gandhi's early life, but omits most important part of his life since 1921

When I purchased this book a few months back, the description didn't mention that it had been written only up to 1921, so I felt let down that it hadn't covered Gandhiji's life in his own words right till the end, or atleast till India's freedom in August 1947. Also, it’s intriguing that this book i… (View complete review)

A thought provoking book.

Never has there been a book, that has moved me so much as this book has. Never has there been a book, that has rocked me to the core as this book has.

It taught me that honesty is one of the hardest but the most fulfilling characteristics one can have. It's difficult and it is a life long effort because the other road tempts you at every moment in the journey of life. That road is often easy. But truth and honesty gives you this exhilarating feeling of freedom and fearlessness that once tasted, you long to have it again and again.

I can never get over this book. You need not …

A profound experiment to fathom the un-fathomable

The society has numerous conceptions on Gandhi. If one praises his struggle for freedom of nation, the other condemns him of his prudence.
So, to really get the true acquaintance of Gandhi, I took the plunge of reading this book and I came to an understanding that people condemn him just out of their societal prejudices without diving to understand the actual events.
The auto-biography was so humble and honest. It seems that he made everything so clear without an iota of egoistic concealment. His main goal, as most of the people perceive wrongly, was not to bring freedom to a nation …

Must read for everyone

I had ordered this book from flipkart but from a different publication house.
Now about the book:
First of all, what a recollection of all the thoughts.
A book, looking so simple yet so powerful that it moved my life.
what a man "Mahatma Gandhi" was.
A narration of his encounter with truth is all what this book talks about. no details about the freedom struggle. but hey! the tree is strong if its roots are. and the same is here also.
right from keeping the vow for vegetarianism to protesting politely for right cause. Mahatma never used violence.
A path so hard to fo…

I have no words to describe this Mahatma, every time i wonder how this simple, ascetic kind of man lived and lead the nation, very rightly said by Einstein very hard to believe a character like Gandhi existed and walked this planet, all i can say is his life itself is a message to the nation

I am halfway through this book. The actions deemed as ones only fit for a Mahatama seem so obvious and simple when he Mohandas Gandhi explains them. All his decisions were rooted in strong common sense and his will to experiment. These experiments had all sorts of results but the mistakes were never repeated. With patience and forgiveness towards himself and the world he became the man we knew him to be.

On being asked, what is your message to the world, he replied,"my life is my message." and through this book he has left it all for us to read.
