Mahatma Gandhi was the main architect of our freedom movement, yet leaving aside the school books, it is doubtful if the youth of our country are aware of his contributions. Instead what we see is that people from all over the world are more interested in Gandhi and his thinking and philosophy. This is evident from the visitors to the Gandhi website www.mkgandhi.org, maintained by Bombay Sarvodaya Mandal, Mumbai and Gandhi Research Foundation, Jalgaon.

The treasure trove of literature on Mahatma Gandhi at the website www.mkgandhi.org, is receiving excellent response. 295 and 297 books were downloaded from this site in the month of May and June 2016 respectively. The list was topped by Gandhi's My Experiments with Truth, followed by Essence of Hinduism, Hind Swaraj, Gandhi Relevance, Story of My Life, Mind of Mahatma Gandhi, Gandhiji on Khadi, Gandhi Biography for Beginners among others.
