Mahatma Gandhi is the most influential Indian of the twentieth century whose shadow continues to loom large over the country even sixty years after his death. He struggled and dreamt of a India free not only from the yoke of the British rule but also free from the evils of poverty, illiteracy, untouchability with all its citizens enjoying equally the fruits of freedom and prosperity. Many of his revolutionary ideas, termed as idiosyncrasies then, are fashionable concepts followed by today|́|s generation. And the resurging popularity of Gandhigiri is proof of Gandhis continuing relevance in the twenty-first century. This book offers a fascinating peep into the mind and ideas of Gandhi and his dream for a vibrant and prosperous modern India. It is a happy idea to place before the world and the country at the present moment when we are entering upon a new era a picture of the India of Mahatma Gandhi's dreams. The freedom which we have won is throwing upon us the responsibilities of making or marring the future of India. It is in no small measure the achievement of Mahatma Gandhi's leadership. The matchless weapon of truth and non-violence which he has used is needed the world to cure it of many of its ills.
