In The Death & Afterlife of Mahatma Gandhi, by Makarand R. Paranjape, the author’s meticulous study culminates in his reading of Gandhi's last six months in Delhi, where, from the very edge of the grave, he shaped what was perhaps his biggest miracle - saving Delhi and thus India itself, from the bloodshed of partition.

Summary of the Book

This title is a thorough and original analysis of the assassination of the Father of the Nation. It talks about who is responsible for the death of the Mahatma's - just one determined enthusiast, the greater ideology that encouraged him, the congress-led government that failed to save him or the sect of Indians who considered Gandhi irrelevant and opted for violence instead? The author, taking an indication from the Mahatma himself, also describes ways to heal the wounds of an ancient civilization divided into two.
