    Description

    An Autobiography: The Story Of My Experiments With Truth contains Gandhi's recollections of his life experiences, up to 1921. This book was originally written in Gujarati, the Mahatma’s mother tongue.

    Summary Of The Book

    When Gandhi was asked by some of his friends to write his autobiography, he was not sure about such an idea. He felt the same way as a friend of his, who had pointed out that an autobiography was more a Western literary form, and it was not popular in the East.

    Gandhi is doubtful as he feels that his beliefs and ideals may change later in life, and may not be the same as they are when he pens his autobiography. Yet, despite all these doubts, the Mahatma decided to proceed with the project.

    As he himself states, this is not a full autobiography. Rather, it is more a record of a series of experiments he conducted with his own life. So, more than a full life history, this story focuses on his attempts to shape his life according to certain principles that he believed in. Gandhi, the man who led India to independence and the man who stood as a symbol for non-violent resistance, most people are aware of. Many also know his simple lifestyle, his vegetarianism and his celibacy.

    This book reveals how he came to believe in those ideals and how he managed to put them into practice in his own life. He dedicated his whole life to his country. Yet, his life was also about much more than the Indian National Movement. His life was about a man constantly trying to find an ideal way of life, to see how far he could go, not just in the political quest for independence, but also in his personal quest for spiritual progress.

    An Autobiography: The Story Of My Experiments With Truth is a record of that aspect of his life, his personal journey as a man of ideals. This book is about the man’s evolution from an ordinary young man who transformed into a Mahatma, an evolved soul who could be an inspiration to others, who later became an inspirational figure to the whole world.

    An Autobiography: The Story Of My Experiments With Truth is a fascinating read, giving the readers an insight into the psyche of one of the most inspiring figures in recent history.

    About M. K. Gandhi

    Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the acknowledged leader of India’s freedom movement in its later phase. He is hailed as the father of the nation.

    Other books by Gandhi are Hind Swaraj or Indian Home Rule and The Essence of Hinduism.

    Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in Gujarat in 1869. He studied law and trained as a barrister in the UK. He then moved to South Africa to represent Indian Muslim traders and Hindu laborers in that country. The two decades he spent in that country were pivotal in his life. It helped shape his political views, ethics and his leadership skills. He developed the idea of satyagraha in South Africa, and when he returned to India, employed it successfully in his native land’s struggle for freedom.

    Here was a greatest rebel of modern times.

    Though I had bought this book from a store - I thought a comment here would be appropriate. Despise is a precise word I could associate myself when I heard the name Mahathma Gandhi - this was before I read the book. May be it was my igorance or the contemporary media/people's influence or may be i just thought his ideas were pretty old or may be I was tired of reading his chapters in all languages in school :)

    I first read this book sometime ago by chance when I was travelling across few rem...

    Perfect product!

    I got this book in less than 2 days. The book is brand new (because some customers complain for used books). I'm writing this review after finishing chapter 15 of vol.1 so far so good.How could someone be so honest, He hasn't hidden anything. A must read for all, especially for those who says many bad things about him without knowing the truth. Thank you Flipkart once again for super fast delivery.
