An autobiography: the story of My experiments with truth by Mohandas K. Gandhi traces his life from his birth in R until the end of 1920 by when his policy of non-cooperation with the government is passed by the all-india Congress Committee.

The man best known as Gandhi’s longest running companion of 25 years, Mahadev Desai was a lawyer by education and a scholar by disposition. He was responsible for transcribing Gandhi’s words and drafting his letters as well as serving as interpreter and interlocutor. So devoted was he to the Mahatma that he even followed Gandhi to jail. Desai was in many ways far more learned and scholarly than Gandhi, tutoring him on history, literature and politics besides other subjects. Desai wrote his most important works on Gandhi during the time that Gandhi was incarcerated in the Yeravda Jail near Pune, Maharashtra from 1931 to 1934. When arrested during the Quit India movement and sent to the Aga Khan Palace for imprisonment, Desai died on August 15th, 1942 at the young age of 50. Gandhi considered it a tragedy and loss to have lost someone Kasturba and he considered a son. Desai’s death was mourned by Gandhi’s supporters throughout the country.

Genghis Khan

    உலகையே கட்டியாளப் போகிறேன் என்று கிளம்பியவர்கள் சிலர். அதில் வெற்றி பெற்றவர்கள் வெகு சிலரே. அவர்களில் முதன்மையானவர் மங்கோலியப் பேரரசர் செங்கிஸ்கான். சுமார் எண்ணூறு வருடங்களுக்கு முன் வாழ்ந்தவர் என்றாலும் இன்றுவரை செங்கிஸ்கான் மீதான மிரட்சியும் ஆச்சரியமும் அச்சமும் குறையாமலிருப்பதற்கான காரணம், உயிரை உலுக்கும் போர்த் தந்திரங்கள் மட்டுமல்ல. அவரது ஆளுமைத் திறனும்தான். ஒரு சாதாரண மங்கோலிய நாடோடிக் கூட்டத்தில் செங்கிஸ்கான் பிறந்தபோது, மங்கோலியா என்ற ஒரு தேசமே கிடையாது. செங்கிஸ்கான் ஒரு கனவு கண்டார். சிதறிக் கிடக்கும் இனக்குழுக்களை ஒன்று சேர்க்க வேண்டும். புத்தம் புதிய தேசத்தை உருவாக்கவேண்டும். உலகமே அண்ணாந்து பார்த்து வியக்கும் வகையில் ஒரு மகா பேரரசைக் கட்டியமைக்கவேண்டும். அசாதாரணமான கனவு. ஆனால் அதை நிறைவேற்றுவதற்கான துடிதுடிப்பும் துணிச்சலும் உத்வேகமும் உக்கிரமும் செங்கிஸ்கானிடம் இருந்தது. கடுமையும் கல்பாறை மனமும் கொண்டவராகத் தன்னை உருமாற்றிக் கொண்டார். எதிரிகளை அழித்தொழிப்பதற்கான சூத்திரங்களை மட்டுமல்ல, கனவுகளைச் சாத்தியமாக்குவதற்கான கலையையும் செங்கிஸ்கானிடம் இருந்தே கற்றுக்கொண்டது உலகம். செங்கிஸ்கான் பற்றி தமிழில் வெளிவரும் முதல் நூல் இது.

Mahatma Gandhi Autobiography: The Story Of My Experiments With Truth

This unusual autobiography “The Story of My Experiments with Truth”, is a window to the workings of Mahatma Gandhi’s mind – a window to the emotions of his heart – a window to understanding what drove this seemingly ordinary man to the heights of being the father of a nation – India.
Starting with his days as a boy, Gandhi takes one through his trials and turmoils and situations that moulded his philosophy of life – going through child marriage, his studies in England, practicing Law in South Africa – and his Satyagraha there – to the early beginnings of the Independence movement in India.
He did not aim to write an autobiography but rather share the experience of his various experiments with truth to arrive at what he perceived as Absolute Truth – the ideal of his struggle against racism, violence and colonialism.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, or the Mahatama, was the leader of the Indian national movement. He fought the colonial regime with his philosophy of Satyagraha and Ahimsa. His birthday, October 2nd, is celebrated as the International Day of Non-violence

Personal tragedies have not been left out. The time when he lost his father and how he felt when conferred with many awards like the Padma Bhushan have been written in much detail.

If you want to leave your footprints in the sands of time, do not drag your feet." These are one of the most enduring lines that still lay etched in my memory. I have read this book long back, and I don’t remember when, but surely the essence remains with me even today. This book is best suited for reading for the teenagers, to dream and to dare. It shows, how a person from the modest background ends up in being the First Citizen of a nation of one billion. It shows how a scientist, devoid of basic tools, helps in culmination of a program which other love to loathe and deride. It shows a man, who lived his life in terms of his principles and nothing else. It shows how a common man, like you and me, can achieve when he can dream. And finally, it teaches how to dream –Tarun Mitra on Apr 26, 2012

This is the most inspiring book I have ever read. Great salute to the man for his contribution to Indian Rocketry.I would like to recall few lines from book. 1. What you imagine, is what you transpire.What you believe is what you achieve. 2. A good plan executed violently right now is far better than a perfect plan executed next week. 3. Once your mind stretches to a new level it never goes back to its original dimension. 4. Adversities always presents opportunities for introspection. and the most inspiring line is.. "We all are born with divine fire in us.Our efforts should be to give wings –Devendra on Aug 26, 2012

After reading this book i realized the value of APJ abdul Kalam’s dedication. Don’t think about money to purchase this book to read a autobiography a spokesman,a president,a DRDO chief scientist,a ISRO chief scientist, a Bramohse supersonic missile innovator… –Naveen A H on Sep 5, 2011
