Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869 – 1948) was the pre-eminent political and spiritual leader of India during the Indian independence movement. He was the pioneer of satyagraha—resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience, a philosophy firmly founded upon ahimsa or total nonviolence—which led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. Gandhi is commonly known around the world as Mahatma Gandhi and in India also as Bapu. He is officially honoured in India as the Father of the Nation; his birthday, 2 October, is commemorated there as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday. (Wikipedia) (1 hr 11 min)

Reviews

Good reading, interesting book.

(4 stars)

Thank you to all the readers, you all do a great job, every section is clear, understandable and easy to listen to. Some interesting pieces of writing. It's interesting to learn more about the situation in India and Gandhi's personal philosophy. I don't agree with everything he says (I dislike it when religion and morality are conflated) but there are some things worth thinking about.

Mohandas has not been officially declared Father of the Nation. RTI response from government in recent times clearly states that no so title has been conferred to Mohandas. The title is just either self proclaimed or a media gimmick.
