Gandhi and Truth



About the Book:

A journey with the Mahatma for an Authentic Living exposes to the reader the concept of truth as lived and taught by Mahatma Gandhi throughout his life. The various nuances of truth are brilliantly exposed in the book taking into account its absolute and relative senses along with its relation to non-violence and Satyagraha. Truth applied to action as in politics, social realm, economics, journalism, health and education are discussed in support of the phenomenal importance that Gandhi attached to truth in his life. The book is an invitation to develop an unbiased appreciation of the values that Gandhi stood for and to put some of these ideals into practice in one’s own life.
