This compelling memoir begins in the heart of apartheid South Africa where the author lived under conditions of zealous racism until he was 12 years old. Following are the two pivotal years he spent with his grandfather in India, learning the lessons that would undo his anger and cultivate a profound activism. His account also describes living with his parents in religious and socially activist communities in South Africa and India. This book presents the practical wisdom the author learned from his grandfather revolving around family, men and women, simplicity, religious unity, humility, truth, and nonviolence.

Born in 1934 in South Africa, Dr. Arun Gandhi has dedicated his life to carrying the message of peace. He is a former reporter for the Times of India, and is co-author (with his wife, Sunanda) of The Forgotten Woman: The Untold Story of Kastur Gandhi, Wife of Mahatma Gandhi. After founding India’s Center for Social Unity, an organization dedicated to alleviating poverty and caste discrimination, he came to the United States in 1987 to study and compare the prejudices in South Africa, India and the U.S. Four years later, he and Sunanda established the M. K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence, which is based at Christian Brothers University in Memphis, Tennessee. Dr. Gandhi is a tireless advocate for the principles of nonviolence, working with young people, in the criminal justice system, and with nonviolence organizations.
