About this title

Synopsis:

This book is the biography of the woman in Mahatma Gandhi's life. The incredible woman known simply as "Ba" -- Mother, to millions of people in India, her story untold until now. Together since childhood she knew the flaws and human frailties of the man behind the legend. Arun Gandhi, the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, and his wife Sunanda, spent almost thirty years gathering the material for this book, which discloses personal facts and details never reported in any other Gandhi biography. Also contains never before published photographs.

About the Author:

Born in 1934 in Durban, South Africa, Arun Gandhi is the fifth grandson of India's late spiritual leader, Mohandas Karamchand "Mahatma" Gandhi. Growing up under South Africa's apartheid was difficult, humiliating and often dangerous. Enduring bigoted attacks from European-African youths for not being "white", and from Native Africans for not being "black", increased the anger that Arun Gandhi bore as a young man. Hoping that time with his grandfather would help the twelve year old Arun control his rage and deal with prejudice through nonviolent means, his parents took him to India to live with "The Mahatma" (or "Great Soul) in India in 1946.

Having written four books and hundreds of articles, Arun Gandhi is an accomplished author and journalist. He and his wife Sunanda published the Suburban Echo in Bombay from 1985 through 1987.

Arun and Sunanda moved to Oxford, Mississippi in 1987. At the Universtiy of Mississippi they collected material to compare race issues in the American South, color discrimination in South Africa, and the caste system in India. In October of 1991 the Gandhis founded the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence. Its mission is to examine, promote, and apply the principles of nonviolent thought and action through research, workshops, seminars, and community service. The Institute is located at Christian Brothers Universtiy in Memphis, Tennessee, where Arun is also a scholar-in-residence.
