Kasturba a Life
Kasturba a Life
Description
From the Jacket:

"I Learned the Lesson of nonviolence from my wife. Her determined resistance of my will on the one hand, and her quiet submission in the suffering my stupidity involved on the other hand, ultimately made me ashamed of myself and cured me of my stupidity."

- GANDHI

Kastur Kapadia was betrothed to Mohandas Gandhi when they were both just seven years old. The couple married when they were thirteen and Kastur had five children, the first of whom was born when she was sixteen.

Together Gandhia and Kastur laid the foundations for the movement of nonviolence to which they devoted their lives. When Gandhi was imprisoned, Kastur was often jailed with him. No obstacle was too great for this extraordinary woman who gave up a life of comfort for one of utter poverty. When Kastur died, the whole nation wept for the woman the people called simply 'Ba'… Mother.

Kasturba: A Life is the result of a lifetime of research by Arun Gandhi, grandson of the Mahatma and Kasturba. As well as recounting historical events behind the birth of a nation, it is also a love story, which ended with the terrible tragedy of Gandhi's assassination in New Delhi in 1948.

Until now, Gandhi's biographers have dwelled upon his legend. This biography is the powerful story of two human beings, triumphing together against overwhelming odds.

About the Author:

Arun Gandhi was born in 1934 in South Africa. At ten he was sent to India to stay with his grandfather, the Mahatma, for eighteen months, and witnessed Gandhi's national campaign of nonviolence first-hand. In 1957 Arun returned to India to work as a journalist for the Times of India. With his wife Sunanda he founded the Centre for Social Unity and in 1991 they opened the MK Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence in Tennessee.

I’ve received the package 2 days ago. The painting is as beautiful as I whished! I’m very interesting in history, art and culture of India and I’m studing his civilization; so I’ve visited Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and Kerala in theese years. I’m a draftwoman , so I like collect works of extraordinary arts and crafts of villages, that must be protected and helped. In a short time I’ll buy some others folk painting, as Madhubani , Kalamkari and – if it’s possible – Phad. In the meanwhile, I’m very happy to have in my home a work of your great artist. Namaste, Namaskara.
