This book can be judged from it's cover! for the cover is good as the contents inside. The introduction gives a brief but complete account of Gandhi's evolution. His important writings and words have been carefully collected and summarized by the author. Gandhi the philospher, thinker, politician and saint, all shades and colours of the man are evident through his writings, his thoughts are powerful enough to transform and his actions even more potent. Fitting tribute to one of the greatest men 'who ever walked upon this earth'.

This book was a simple reminder that life is not about how many things you have accumulated, but how you can contribute to your family, the community, the nation and the world to create solidarity, value and justice together.
