The best of India,
This review is from: An Autobiography: The Story of My Experiments with Truth (Paperback)This autobiography is an essential for anybody interested in grasping the zeitgeist of Indias struggle for freedom from Colonialism. Gandhi was a truly remarkable man, always seeking to improve himself from dietics, through to modest living, to the philosophy of self sufficiency. Yet a Lawyer, who had resided in South Africa and the UK, never afraid to confront injustice. One of the most remarkable men of the preceding century, a peacemaker, a man of quiet understated dignity, he more than most Indians laid the foundations for the post colonial state of India.
As an individual he sets an extraordinarily high standard for learning and the determination to self improvement, as a human being, pious with a feeling transcending denominational bias, never have figures in recent history like Gandhi been so sorely needed, or missed. His voice will speak to you, reaching out from mere pages.
