9781477440568: The Story Of My Experiments With Truth

The first edition of Gandhiji's Autobiography was published in two volumes, Vol. I in 1927 and Vol. II in 1929. The original in Gujarati which was priced at Re. 1/- has run through five editions, nearly 50,000 copies having been sold. The price of the English translation (only issued in library edition) was prohibitive for the Indian reader, and a cheap edition has long been needed. It is now being issued in one volume. The translation, as it appeared serially in Young India, had, it may be noted, the benefit of Gandhiji's revision. It has now undergone careful revision, and from the point of view of language, it has had the benefit of careful revision by a revered friend, who, among many other things, has the reputation of being an eminent English scholar. Before undertaking the task, he made it a condition that his name should on no account be given out. I accept the condition. It is needless to say it heightens my sense of gratitude to him. Chapters XXIX-XLIII of Part V were translated by my friend and colleague Pyarelal during my absence in Bardoli at the time of the Bardoli Agrarian Inquiry by the Broomfield Committee in 1928-29. Mahadev Desai, 1940.

About the Author:

Mahatma Gandhi, or Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, was born at Porbandar in Gujarat, on October 2, 1869. His father was the Dewan of the Porbandar State.

Early Life and Career: He married Kasturba when he was only thirteen. He was very truthful from his boyhood days. He went to England to be a barrister. He did not do well as a lawyer. In South Africa he began a movement against the British rulers. In India too he led the freedom movement and at last won independence in 1947.

Non-violence and Gandhism: Gandhiji believed in non-violence and love. He was against untouchability and all sorts of injustice in society. He lived a saintly life and suffered a lot to see truth triumph. His heart bled for the poor and the oppressed. He said that all men were equal. He wanted them all to live in peace. He dreamed of a Ram Rajya in which everybody would live in peace. He was against the modern civilization. Instead, he wanted his countrymen to live in the villages.

Freedom Struggle in India: After spending 21 years in South Africa, Gandhiji returned to India in 1915. While fighting against the British rule in India, he always maintained his principles of truthfulness, peace and non-violence. In 1942, he launched the ‘Quit India Movement’ to drive the British out of the country and gave the famous slogan of ‘do or die’ to his countrymen. Though, the movement didn’t prove to be an immediate success, the British had to grant independence to our country in 1947.

Death and Memory: This great son of India was shot dead on January 30, 1948. But he will live forever in our heart for what he has done for India.
