This book under Patel Memorial Lecture, brought out in Gandhi centenary year, is a tribute to Gandhiji in its own unique way. It evaluates Gandhiji's concepts of religion and culture as the basis of his political and economic ideas. In the world of Gandhian thought, religion and culture are closely related to each other. A cultured man to him was not one who strove primarily for his own artistic or intellectual satisfaction, but one who was also concerned with the welfare of others. Well known Educationist Dr. Saiyidain presents in this book a lucid analysis of these aspects of Gandhiji's life and thought.
