One characteristic of this book is that it takes a holistic approach and tries to see how the different aspects of Gandhi’s life have interacted with one another. One more aim of the book is to see if we may extract anything out of him now, seventy years after his demise, when we are squarely to face the problems before us of building peace and solving poverty. For these purposes Gandhi’s politics, socioeconomics, and his fight against communalism constitute the themes of the three key chapters. They are preceded by one on his motivation and his religion. The final one is on his international activities. A brief “Summing Up” follows.The author shows his respect to Gandhi’s compassion, farsightedness, even genius, here and there, but does not hesitate to point out his mistakes. This is the result of the author’s decadelong dialogue with many Indians, Gandhi’s writings, and works on him. Printed Pages: 243.
