Gandhiji and His Disciples
Gandhiji and His Disciples
Description
Preface

In the formative period of my life, I was not a admirer of Mahatma Gandhi. The eleven pledge prescribed by him as a short of a moral code of conduct seemed to me too puritanical to digest. Though his greatness was beyond doubt, yet I accepted that fact only with a feeble heart.

Today I am at the opposite end of the swing. My fondness for him has grown much beyond my imagination. As I go deep into his writing my fondness for him makes a deeper impact on my mind. The miracle that he wrought on our age is going to be a legend for many generations to come. Otherwise, how could he have inspired persons like Vinoba Bhave, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, J.B. Kripalani, Thakkar Bapa, Ravishanker Maharaj, Jamnalal Bajaj, Nanabhai Bhatt, J.C. Kumarappa, Sorajini Naidu, Rajkumari Amrit Kaur, Sushila Nayar, Ashadevi Aryanayakam, Mirabehnand many others, from all walks of life and with an astonishing richness of head and heart?

The disciples of Gandhiji are innumerable. Obviously, all of them could never be accommodated on a small volume like this. But the fact that they are innumerable is, in itself, a pointer to a direction for anyone to explore the treasure of the lives of these persons, and present from it Gandhiji, as seen in their work and as reflected from their style of loving. In so doing, perhaps, we may find out some sapling from where may bloom a new Gandhi-age really to evolve itself in this world.

While compiling these biographic sketches, I had a feeling of ecstasy, almost the rapturous experience of a lyrical poem. At times, it moistened my eyes. For providing such blissful moments I am indeed grateful to the National Book Trust which entrusted this pleasant work to me. I am equally grateful to Shri Mahendra V Desai, who took pains to go through the manuscript and make some valuable suggestions.

At the end of each chapter, notes have been given to show the source from which the material is drawn. I am indebted to all the writes and the publishers of the books enlisted in the notes. Finally, I owe lot of thanks to Shri Amrit Modi, Director of Gandhi Memorial Museum, Sabarmati Ashram, Ahmedabad, for equipping me with all the source material for this book and also the photographs.

May I also say that I am solely responsible for any error of fact or narration in this book?

 

Back of the Book

Mahatma Gandhi attracted to himself at Sabarmati Ashram and elsewhere, men and women from diverse fields and regions committed to social action: khan, Vinoba Bhave, J C Kumarappa, Zakir Husain, J B Kripalani, Mirabehn, and others. The twelve biographical sketches in this book tell of the lives of these eminent Gandhians describing their initiation into Gandhian thought, how their future lives were shaped by the Mahatma's ideas, and their contribution's in diverse fields like education, land reform,planning and, of course, India's struggle for freedom. The author's association with the Gandhian movement lends authority to these sketches, which are prefaced by an essay on Gandhi's social thought. The anecdotes woven into these pieces not only engage the reader's interest but also illustrate the working of Gandhian thought in the lives of these inspired men and women.

Jayant Maganlal Pandya, educated at Banaras Hindu University, taught English for several decades at various colleges in Gujarat. He has edited a commemorative volume on Mahadev Desai in Gujarati and has published a biography of Mirabehn in English. Editor of Nireekshak, a Gujarati weekly, for many years, Shri Pandya has also translated literary works like Kalidasa's Meghadootam and Homer's Iliad into Gujarati.

Testimonials

Hello Vipin K., thanks a lot for replacing the 4th volume of the Srimad Bhagavatam and sending me a faultless copy of the book so fast. The faulty pagination (missing and mixed up pages) is due to the bookbinding, of course, you are not to blame. Your customer service is excellent. And as your selection of books is extraordinary, I'm already looking forward to the next books that will reach me, perfectly packed and in best condition as always. ;-)
Walter
I really found this site to be very well designed, and the number of items amazing. From my careful inspection of the high resolution photos, the quality of work appears to be outstanding.
Sanjay, USA
The statue was delivered today. It is exceedingly beautiful. My thanks to the creator of the statue for such a lovely idol and to yourselves for the great service.
Shashi
I'm so proud of your Company, it's so rare to have a good service after sales.... I will recommend you to all my friends.
Colette, Canada
I am a repeat customer of your store. I have bought several items from you and like the quality and service. Please keep up the good work of providing Puranas and Vedas.
Raghavan, USA
This is a beautiful website - and very customer friendly - easy to find your way around.
Sonia, UK.
Fantastic service! Delivery in Italy in two days!
Francesca Verna
Your custom service is great, especially Vipin. Vipin helped me locate a lost package. that was so nice!!!! I love this company. I love the cotton skirts with ruffle on the bottom. I also love how that when we place items in the shopping cart, the computer system allows them to remain in the cart until we are ready to purchase them. They don't disappear like with other on-line stores shopping cart system. Your the Best!!!
Heather Davis, USA
A true treasure vault of Bharatiya samskruti knowledge books! Thanks for this service.
Shashikant, USA
Very nice website, easy to use. Your one of the few Indian website that have an extensive collection of CD's that will ship to America.I think Indian website should expand themselves into the global community China sure has. China's market growth had to do with supply and demand. The same thing could happen to India, you just have to open the doors of India and let it happen. At least you seem to be doing that.
