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.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
