Review Text

  • By Jeffrey Leeper on February 5, 2001

    This was my first book on Gandhi. I had gone to India and visited the monument to the Salt March and saw pictures of Gandhi with Nehru at Nehru's home. While I was there, the people of Delhi celebrated the birthday of Gandhi. This led me to want to learn more about Mahatma.This book does not disappoint. First, I found that Mahatma was one of the many names that people created for him. It was not his born name. This book started with a brief explanation of the area, Gujarat, where Gandhi was born and raised. You learn some about his early family life.The recurring theme I noticed was that Gandhi was always studying and trying to understand more. He experimented and was not ashamed to admit when he was wrong. He was truly a man of peace.I did learn about some of his less than saintly traits. One mentioned in this book is that he would hold others to the same strict requirements (diet, labor, etc.) that he himself would do. He felt that if he could do it, others could to.This book does not strive to show you what a saint Gandhi was or that he was some kind of flawed angel. It does show you that we truly worked to set the example for India to help it become independent and self-sufficient
