Inspiring Stories from Mahatma Gandhi



About the Book:

Everyone loves stories, anecdotes and episodes associated with great personages. They capture attention and enable the listeners to identify themselves with their message. By appealing to the emotions, stories can arouse curiosity in a person much more than a series of impersonal platitudes. Inspiring Stories from Mahatma Gandhi is such a collection of stories, incidents and anecdotes either linked directly to the life of Gandhi or to some close associates of Gandhi. They can engender love for him among the readers and can provide an in depth knowledge of the life and works of Gandhi through not so serious and yet captivating reading.
The book is an invitation to live some of the Gandhian principles in a dispassionate manner.
