Gandhi: The True Man Behind Modern India.

Adams, Jad.

Picture of Gandhi: The True Man Behind Modern India.
He had incredible drive, was a major political leader and pioneered the use of non-violent resistance. He has inspired civil rights movements all over the world. But he was not a saint. He was a pacifist, but the treatment of his wife and son was cruel; a self – denying ascetic who preached the virtues of chastity, but who sexually experimented with female devotees and teenage great – nieces; and a political radical who declared resistance to racism, but whose vision for India was almost of a medieval society. Fascinating.
