“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” -Mahatma Gandhi


Mahatma Gandhi is considered the father of the Indian independence movement. Mahatma Gandhi studied law and came to advocate for the rights of his people in India and in South Africa, where he spent twenty years working to fight discrimination. It was there that he created his concept of satyagraha, a non-violent way of protesting against injustices. Satyagraha remains one of the most potent philosophies in freedom struggles throughout the world today. Gandhi dedicated his life to fighting British imperialism in his native country. The essays collected in Freedom's Battle offer a detailed account of Gandhi's political ideals and the wrongs he regarded as inherent in imperial rule. This is the definitive collection of Gandhi’s speeches and writings on topics including the non-violent non-cooperation movement of August 1920, the Khilafat question, the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, Swaraj, Hindu-Muslim unity, the problems of Indians overseas, the untouchability issue and other contemporary topics. Historical introduction by C. Rajagopalachari is illuminating.
