Quite distinct from the abundant literature available on Mahatma Gandhi, this historical biography attempts to articulate the historiography of India's freedom struggle, of which Gandhi was undoubtedly the central figure. Relooking at key issues and themes that have been raised in the research conducted over the past few decades, this is an interpretative essay that seeks to contextualize Gandhi and his ideology of ahimsa and satyagraha. Instead of focusing merely on Gandhi's personal life, Prof Bidyut Chakrabarty conceptualizes the evolution of his ideas in the context of anti-colonial nationalism. A nationalism of the Mahatma that for the first time in the history of the independence struggle reached every village and taluk of the state. A nationalism for a country and a society based on his principles of nai talim (new education) and sarvodaya (upliftment of all). But was it the right path and ideology for a new and emerging nation? Despite being Gandhi-centred, the biography is thus imbued with questions, which it attempts to answer. Through a unique study of one of the most prominent personalities of the twentieth century, it addresses areas of human concerns, which will always remain universal in scope and content.

William Shak espeare said, "some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them. In fact one can achieve greatness only by ones deeds and not by ones birth. Such a person was Mahatma Gandhi, the father of the nation. His real name was Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi but he was popularly called 'Mahatma Gandhi' for his valuable deeds.

His mother, Putli Bai, was also a pious lady of refined sensibilities. She never took her meals without performing her prayers. His parents greatly influenced Gandhiji.

First published in 1993, Dennis Dalton's iconoclastic account of Gandhi's political and intellectual development gained prominence for its balance and extensive research, as well as its portrayal of Gandhi as a deeply human and complex force. Focusing on the leader's two signal triumphs: the civil disobedience movement (or salt satyagraha) of 1930 and the Calcutta fast of 1947, Dalton makes clear that Gandhi's lifelong career in national politics gave him the opportunity to develop and refine his ideals. He controversially concludes with a comparison of Gandhi's methods and the strategies of Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, proposing a fascinating juxtaposition that not only enriches the biography of all three figures but also proves Gandhi's relevance to the study of race and political leadership in America. A new afterword situates Gandhi within the "clash of civilizations" debate, identifying the implications for continuing nonviolent protests. Dalton also conducts an extensive overview of Gandhian studies and includes a detailed chronology of events in Gandhi's life and leadership.

New Reformatted EditionMahatma Gandhi's life was an experiment with truth. Put your principles to real practice-this was his message to the contemporary world. To him God was Truth and Truth was God. Here are essays and reflections on Mahatma Gandhi, one of the outstanding personalities not only of our time but of all times. Gandhiji was the greatest moral force in Indian history. For the accomplishment of liberty, justice, and peace, he rediscovered the old techniques of Ahimsa and Satyagraha. He revealed to the masses a power not of rifles and machine guns, but the power innate in each individual, a power which this war-haunted world can exploit fully in making wars impossible. This book contains tribute to the Father of the Nation, from prominent thinkers like C.F. Andrews, Aldous Huxley, Lin Yutang, A.Coomaraswamy, Sri Aurobindo and many others. Some of Gandhiji's most distinct and famous speeches are brought together in an appendix in this volume.

Mahatma Gandhi benannte 1925 sieben Sünden der modernen Gesellschaft: Politik ohne Prinzipien, Reichtum ohne Arbeit, Genuss ohne Gewissen, Wissen ohne Charakter, Geschäft ohne Moral, Wissenschaft ohne Menschlichkeit, Religion ohne Opfer. Seine Gedanken haben seitdem nichts von ihrer Strahlkraft verloren, doch wie können sie heute verstanden werden? Verträgt sich z.B. politische Prinzipientreue mit den Anforderungen einer pluralistischen Demokratie? Können wir in einer globalisierten Welt einen Ausgleich zwischen Geschäft und Moral schaffen? Und wie kann der von Gandhi angeprangerte Missstand einer Religion ohne Opfer" angesichts religiöser Selbstmordanschläge verstanden werden? In einer dreiteiligen Serie hat ZEIT WISSEN hochkarätige Autoren gebeten, Gandhis Gedanken aus heutiger Sicht zu interpretieren. Dieses E-Book fasst die erschienenen Artikel zusammen. Die Artikel: - 7 Sünden der modernen Gesellschaft: ZEIT-Korrespondent Jan RoB porträtiert Mahatma Gandhi, dessen Gedanken bis heute enorme politische Kraft entwickeln. - Politik ohne Prinzipien: Bernd Ulrich, Politikchef der ZEIT, über die Wechselwirkung von Prinzipientreue und Demokratie - Wissenschaft ohne Menschlichkeit: Bruno Frey, Professor für Politische Ökonomie, über den Fehler, Moral vom einzelnen Wissenschaftler einzufordern, wo Freiheit gefragt wäre - Geschäft ohne Moral: Politikwissenschaftler Thomas Risse über die Herausforderung, Ethik und Profitinteressen zu vereinbaren - Religion ohne Opfer: Kulturwissenschaftlerin Christina von Braun über den gefährlichen Verlust des Selbstopfers - Genuss ohne Gewissen: Jean Ziegler, Soziologe, über unsere Weltordnung zwischen Gier, Verdrängung und Hungerleiden - Wissen ohne Charakter: Big-Data-Expertin Yvonne Hofstetter über die Macht der Algorithmen. - Reichtum ohne Arbeit: Jutta Allmendinger, Präsidentin des Wissenschaftszentrums Berlin für Sozialforschung, über die Frage: Wie können wir Wohlstand gerecht verteilen?

On his passport he was Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. The poet Rabindranath Tagore gave him the title 'Mahatma'- the great soul- but he was rather uncomfortable with that. Nelson Mandela calls him a 'sacred warrior'; others describe him as the 'the saint of the spinning wheel' and we now declare him as our 'Father of the Nation'. A courageous freedom fighter; a shrewd politician; a passionate social reformer and a staunch nationalist; Mahatma Gandhi was all this and much more. He was the most unusual leader this country has seen; and one of the most influential personalities whose name is synonymous with India's independence. He was the one who touched the lives of millions; whose ideals of satyagraha and ahimsa inspired great leaders of the world; and who could make the entire country come to a halt by going on a fast. Through a vivid narrative; author Subhadra Sen Gupta recreates the life and legacy of this phenomenal leader to portray the man beneath the simple handspun clothes; who ate saltless vegetables and bitter neem chutney; who greeted kings and paupers alike; who walked 240 miles at the age of sixty to break the Salt Law; and whose entire life was dedicated to truth and to peace. Even today as we read inspirational accounts of Gandhiji's life and talk of gandhigiri; we know that his ideals are alive and relevant to today's generation.

The idea of nonviolent resistance is still as essential and almost as radical today as it was when Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) first pioneered in India the protest of political tyranny-in his case against British colonialism-through massive displays of civil disobedience. Gandhi's ideas of peaceful protest went on to inspire the marches and sit-ins of the American Civil Rights movement and continue to be the foundations for political and social demonstrations around the world. This biography by leading scholar Douglas Allen presents a new and challenging approach to understanding Gandhi's life-the time in which he lived, how he shaped history, and how his philosophy and practices can be reformulated in ways that are significant and effective today. Allen analyzes his continuing relevance by addressing key issues of truth and ethics, violence and nonviolence, equality and freedom, as well as ideas of exploitation, oppression, religious conflict, and environmental crises. Allen provides a much needed new perspective on Gandhi that allows us to rethink our basic values and priorities. By helping us understand Gandhi's life and message, he creates a new paradigm for evaluating truth, nonviolence, peace, and morality; and he offers new criteria for assessing our modern approach to standards of living, development, progress, and meaningful human existence.

Biographie de Gandhi. Gandhi domina la scène politique et sociale durant toute la première moitié du XXe siècle. Dès 1893, après des études de Droit à Londres, il part pour l'Afrique du Sud où le double idéal qui guidera toute sa vie commence à se manifester: un amour fervent pour l'Inde tout entière et un besoin inné de remplir un devoir difficile dans un esprit d'amour et de charité envers l'humanité. Imprégné par la tradition religieuse de l'Inde ancienne et l'esprit de la Bhagavad-Gîta, par le Sermon sur la montagne et l'oeuvre de Tolstoï, il inaugure contre les oppresseurs une méthode qui renonce à la lutte armée et respecte la personne humaine. Il prône la Non-violence et la Résistance passive, d'abord en Afrique du Sud, puis en Inde, afin de mener son pays à l'indépendance. La tactique passe par l'autonomie économique obtenue par la Désobéissance civile. En 1947, après trente ans de lutte, il atteint enfin le but si ardemment rêvé pour son peuple, l'indépendance de l'Inde, quoique son voeu de cohabitation harmonieuse entre hindous et musulmans ne se réalise pas entièrement. L'indépendance s'accompagne en effet de la partition du pays entre l'Inde et l'état musulman du Pakistan. Un attentat, perpétré à Dehli par un fanatique hindou, met fin à la vie de Gandhi le 30 janvier 1948. L'appellation de Mahatma l'honore et le désigne à la postérité comme l'une des personnalités de premier plan dans l'histoire de l'Inde et du monde. Fervent partisan de la Non-violence, Romain Rolland retrace dans cette biographie le parcours et le combat mené par son ami.

"There are Seven Deadly Social Sins: politics without principle; wealth without work; commerce without morality; pleasure without conscience; education without character; science without humility; worship without sacrifice." "You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind." "You yourself as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve love and affection."A 'No' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'Yes' merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble."
