The Story of My Experiments With Truth is the autobiography of the Father of the Indian Nation, Mahatma Gandhi.
Summary of the Book
The word "Mahatma" means venerable, or high-souled, in Sanskrit. It is a word wholly Indian in origin, but it is odd that the name should be given to an Indian not in his motherland but out of it. When Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi left South Africa to return to India, he already had earned that name. He already had a reputation for stirring up the emotions of the people, riling up their fury and channelling it into a calm, bright anger with the fire of nonviolence. He’d achieved the impossible in South Africa, helping the natives fight against the racial oppression at the hands of their European masters. With such a legacy in tow, Gandhi went home, not to enjoy a quiet retirement, but to begin his real test. He went home to fulfil his true missive: the independence of the nation from the British Raj. In this book, Gandhi writes about his childhood, his years as a young adult experimenting with meat, and his obsession with sex. He also writes about his journey towards ridding himself of human desires, and his constant struggle to help his fellow men. Through his words, readers will witness the man's transformation into the Mahatma.
About Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was a freedom fighter, former advocate and Indian political figure. He was famous for his advocacy on nonviolence and his general outlook on life.
Born in Porbandar, Gujarat, Gandhi's life was changed with his education and eventual journey to South Africa where he helped the natives battle racism. He returned to his motherland to find her weeping under the weight of British Rule and his actions finally engulfed India into the final years of conflict before achieving Independence.
Much of Gandhi’s life was adapted into a hit film starring Ben Kingsley.
