"The still small voice within me whispers: why bother about what others say. I have given you a colleague like Dr. Dinshah who understands you and whom you understand."

Glimpses of Mahatma Gandhi in his Multifarious activities are brought out in this book entitled, "Mahatma Gandhi: the Beloved Patient" by Dr. Dinshah Mehta. Dr. Mehta came into close contact with Mahatma Gandhi since with Mahatma Gandhi since Bapu was equally interested in Nature Cure of which Dr. Mehta was a pioneer in our country.

Apart from playing a pivotal role at the time of the visit of the Cabinet Mission under the leadership of Lord Pethick Lawrence, Dr. Mehta tried his best to bring closer the view of the Congress as represented by Gandhiji and Sir Stafford Cripps a Member of the Cabinet Mission, and a champion of India's freedom from colonial rule.

Many other interesting anecdotes about Gandhiji fund of humour are brought out in this book once, some officials visited Gandhiji to fill up a form. Dr. Mehta and many other Congress leaders were present. After taking down details about Gandhiji religion, status, etc. when the official came to the question of 'Occupation', the leaders assembled there wondered what reply Gandhiji would give. Some suggested 'Social Service', 'Politician' etc. Gandhiji paused for a moment and said., "Wait, you put down as my 'Occupation', "once a lawyer, now an outlaw"

Dr. Mehta started his Nature Cure Clinic and Sanatorium in Poona in the year 1929 with a galvanized tub and a cold water tap. Soon, he built it up to a full-fledged and fully equipped institution.

He stayed for the months at the Poona, inner transformation came in his life decision it was for me to do my fast at the clinic and Dr. Mehta's physical and spiritual ministration made a profound impression of my life.

 

Foreword

we have been a most unusual combination between two remarkable individuals a doctor and a patient. The patient was none other than activities would be fascinating, but this is particularly so when the doctor concerned was Dr. Dinshah K. Mehta, now known as Rev. Dada ji. Dr. Mehta was not only the pioneer of modern Naturopathy in India, but also a person of deep spiritual stature who has for many decades worked through the society of Servants of God for Spiritual regeneration of the individual and the nation.

Dr. Mehta's record of his long and intimate association with Mahatma Gandhi throws a great deal of light upon the tumultuous events of the 30s and 40s when our freedom movement reached its triumphant but tragic conclusion. We get glimpses into the mind of Gandhi ji and his views on may significant issues. Beginning with his first meeting with Gandhi ji 1932, the story continues right upto his assassination biographical as well as historical viewpoints and it is but appropriate that the Bharatiya Vidya Bhava, the institution founded by Dr. K. M Munshi for the regeneration of Indian culture should have brought out this book.

I must mention that this publication would not have been possible had it not been for the devotion and dedication of the late Dr. Sundri P. Vaswani. An outstanding management consultant in her own right, Dr. Vaswani served dada ji and the society with total commitment until her untimely death a few years ago. During this period she brought out many publications of Dada ji including the laws of health also published by the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan. This book, in all fairness, should be dedicated to her memory.

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

Shashi

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.
