About the Author
Mohandas Gandhi was born in Western India in 1869. After studying law in London and living in South Africa for many years, he returned to India in 1915, where he spent the rest of his life campaigning for India's independence and promoting his fundamental principles of truth and non-violence. He died in 1948.

The parrenial question is: why did he oppose the partition so much. The book offers a glimpse of insight into his mind; his stance was metaphysically rather than politically motivated. The idea of ‘unity’ appears quite early in the book (which ends long before the partition of India), and I think it was imprinted into his Hindu soul. Schopenhauer (much influenced by Eastern philosophy) would have called it ‘the underlying unity of all existence’. With this worldview, division and violence against others would have been seen as violence and division directed at oneself. Gandhi paid for the adherence to this principle with his life. Very few people (especially politicians) would have been prepared to do it today, even at any time. Principles no longer matter.
