'A more heroic tale has yet to be told . . . [Mohandas] is meticulously researched, written in felicitous prose and is a delight to read'-Khushwant Singh, Outlook A candid recreation of one of the most influential lives of recent times, Mohandas finally answers questions long asked about the timid youth from PBI - India's west coast who became a century's conscience and led his nation to liberty: What was Gandhi like in his daily life and in his closest relationships? In his face-offs with an Empire, with his own bitterly divided people, with his adversaries, his family and-his greatest confrontation-with himself? Answering these and other questions, and releasing the true Gandhi from his shroud of fame and myth, Mohandas, authored by a practised biographer who is also Gandhi's grandson, does more than tell a story. Praise for the Book 'Rajmohan strikes a fine balance in this comprehensive work, lacing the painstakingly detailed chronological account with just the right amount of interpretation. [His] approach goes a long way in painting a portrait of Gandhiji that is very human, plausible, and easy to identify with' -Mukund Padmanabhan, The Hindu 'An impeccable exercise in objectivity . . . A remarkable performance. This biography ought to be read over and over again . . . The bareness of Rajmohan's recital of moods and events heightens the poignancy . . . Mahatma Gandhi was a votary of restraint; this book exemplifies, magnificently, such restraint. The grandfather would have approved of Rajmohan's Mohandas' -Ashok Mitra, Telegraph 'A story of epic proportions . . . Gandhi's luminous compassion, courage and humanity shine through these pages and bring light into our lives' -Sonia Gandhi 'The only word to describe this work is "fabulous". Literally scores of people have written on Mahatma Gandhi . . . But . . . Mohandas will henceforth be remembered as the last word on the subject' -M.V. Kamath, Organizer
