The story of Mohandas Gandhi, one of the world┬’s best-loved and most important promoters of freedom and justice, fascinates every generation. Thrown off a South African train for sitting in a ┬“whites only┬” compartment, Gandhi resolved to oppose injustice wherever he encountered it. His life of resistance led him to a remarkable philosophy of nonviolence that culminated in the freedom struggle in India. Part 2 of the book features a selection of quotations from Gandhi┬’s essential writings.

┬“Albert Einstein observed, ┬‘Generations to come ... will scarce believe that such a one as [Mohandas K. Gandhi] ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth.┬’ Richard Deats┬’ account of Gandhi┬’s life and message could not be more timely. It is accessible, concise, and compelling. Read it.┬”

┬“Richard Deats┬’ analysis of Gandhi┬’s search for God and the value of nonviolence is very readable and insightful. Gandhi always believed one cannot find God without first understanding and living a nonviolent lifestyle. This book shows us the way to higher thinking and higher living.┬”

Arun Gandhi, Founder and President
M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence, Memphis, Tenn.

Mohan chand karma chand Gandhi is really a great man who lives in austere way like a hermit.He played great role in the freedom fight of India from British rule . He thinks that non violence is god and to see god see man . God resides everywhere. I think that Gandhi played a crucial role in making and building a prosperous India.
All Indians remember him at every year of 2nd of october as world's peaceful day. Gandhi laid down the stone of freedom of India in the minds of down treaded people of India. People feel that they also got freedom from the British Empire.
