9781905422630: A Frank Friendship: Gandhi and Bengal: A Descriptive Chronology

Gandhi’s close relationship with people and events in Bengal extended over 50 years. He first entered Calcutta in 1896 when visiting India from South Africa. His last visit in 1947 coincided almost to the day with India’s independence from British rule. Bengal has always been one of India’s most vibrant regions, politically, commercially and artistically, never moreso than during the struggle for independence. Over this half century, Gandhi forged close links with the region, connecting himself with many of Bengal’s cultural and political leaders - Rabindranath Tagore, Acharya Prafulla Chandra Ray, Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das, and the Bose brothers.Gandhi and Bengal draws on a wide range of contemporary documents – from newspaper reports, letters, journals, and Gandhi’s own writings. The book throws new light on Gandhi’s own evolution as a politician and a strategist, revealing his continual struggle against colonialism as well as his very personal dilemmas, torn between the practical and the spiritual.

Book Description Seagull Books, 2008. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. First edition. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi?s first visit to Bengal was on 4 July 1896 when he disembarked in Calcutta while on a visit from South Africa. Lord Elgin was Viceroy and Governor General of India. His last visit to Calcutta commenced shortly before 15 August 1947, the day India became free. Through this meticulous compilation of newspaper reports, letters, excerpts from contemporary accounts and Gandhi?s own writings, and the extensive annotations that bring to light many known and unknown characters and events of the time, as well as accounts of Gandhi?s interactions with the ?greats? of Bengal such as Rabindranath Tagore, Acharya Prafulla Chandra Ray, Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das and the impactful Bose brothers that reveal their extraordinary personalities, we see a man continually evolving as a politician and a strategist in the struggle against colonialism, an organizer of mass-struggles and of individual initiatives, mainly his own. Running through the text, as it does through Gandhi?s thoughts, prayers, decisions and extensive travels, is the pulse of the people of Bengal, a people whose manifold talents and perspectives set them at the heart of renascent India. This volume is sure to enable a better understanding of the Mahatma whose life was sited on an almost oxymoronic overlap of the empirical and the deeply spiritual. Printed Pages: 616.
