    Description

    Gandhi before India, written by Ramachandra Guha, depicts the dramatic story of how Gandhi made a cross-class and inter-religious alliances happen, and how he pledged to non-violence in a battle against a racist regime.

    Summary of the Book

    Based on Dr. Guha’s meticulous research, this book offers new insights into the life and times of Gandhi, especially before he became the Father of the Nation. In 1893, when Mohandas Gandhi set sail for South Africa, he was a lawyer with no briefcase, who had failed to establish himself in India. In this outstanding biography, Ramachandra Guha asserts that the two decades that Gandhi spent in the diaspora were the making of the Mahatma. It was there that his philosophies and techniques saw their beginning, which would eventually destroy the British Empire in India. This book also explores Gandhi's experiments with rebellious cults, his friendships and enmities, and his failures in terms of certain responsibilities towards his family.
