This book simplifies his life and philosophies for young readers.


Mahatma Gandhi: the Father of the Nation
Written by Subhadra Sen Gupta; Published by Puffin Books Buy the e-book version on Amazon.in

The poet Rabindranath Tagore gave him the title, Mahatma-the great soul, but he was always rather uncomfortable with it. Nelson Mandela called him a sacred warrior. Some describe him as the saint of the spinning wheel and we Indians refer to him as the Father of the Nation. A courageous freedom fighter, a shrewd politician, a passionate social reformer and a staunch nationalist, Mahatma Gandhi was all this and much more. He was the most unusual leader this country has seen and one of the most influential personalities, whose name is synonymous with India’s independence. He touched the lives of millions. This book recreates the life and legacy of the man beneath the simple handspun clothes—who ate salt-less vegetables and bitter neem chutney, who walked 240 miles at the age of 60 to break the Salt Act and whose entire life was dedicated to truth and peace.
