How did a mischievous, fun-loving boy from Porbandar become one of history's most eminent crusaders for human rights? Illustrated throughout with rare photos and images of manuscripts, this succinct biography follows Gandhi from his schooling and early marriage in Kathiawar to his first brushes with the grandeur of London, and from his chance employment for a legal case in South Africa to a train ride in Pietermaritzburg that led to his first fight for equality. Pramod Kapoor traces how this relatively unsuccessful lawyer became a globally celebrated symbol of peaceful protest, a rebel who redefined the meaning of mass resistance for generation to come.
