This book is an exploration of the life and message of Mahatma Gandhi, “the apostle of non-violence“. It is not merely an academic study, but reflects people’s genuine thirst for searching authentic freedom in a world where inhuman, irreligious and unchristian spirit prevails. The spirit and vision of Mahatma Gandhi, the great son of Arsha-Bharata, who gave his life for tolerance and non-violence, and who treated all religions with the same spirit of respect and tolerance, will inspire the readers to motivate themselves for achieving harmony and unity in today’s world.
