Newsletter : Letters to Gandhi ( Book Review )


Who were the people who wrote letters to Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi? A new volume seeks to profile his early correspondents

We know that Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was a prolific correspondent who wrote letters on everything from the mundane to how to win independence. What of his correspondents? Who were the people who wrote to him? What did they write about? The Collected Works give us all that Gandhi wrote, but not what his correspondents wrote to him. That gap is now being rectified.
We now have the first volume of an ambitious project to publish all such letters that have been maintained at the Sabarmati Ashram. There are apparently 8,500 of them in Sabarmati. The aim is to publish a multi-volume, multi-language annotated collection of these letters.
The first volume covering the years 1889-1900 has been put together with great care by the editors, and gives a glimpse of a journey in the making.

New Book Published: Integrating Body, Mind and Heart: The Gandhian Way

Integrating Body, Mind and Heart: The Gandhian Way

Written By : Ram Chandra Pradhan

Pages : 16 + 208

Price : Rs. 95/-

Published by : Trinity Press, New Delhi

About the Book:
A true integration of body, mind and heart (soul/spirit) is one of the most challenging tasks of our times. In fact, their disharmony and non-integration is not only afflicting the human life but also the entire cosmic order. Worldly success and material gains have become the secular gods of today. As such they are presenting the greatest obstacles to an integrated and holistic life. ‘Integrating Body, Mind and Heart’ is designed to delineate the various dimensions of this problem. It also reviews and revivifies a number of ways and means to bring about such integration.

Gandhi Before India

Written By : Ramchandra Guha

Pages : 688

Price : Rs. 899/-

First Edition : October 2013

Published by : Penguin / Allen Lane.

About the Book:
In 1893, when Mohandas Gandhi set sail for South Africa, he was a 23-year-old briefless lawyer who had failed to establish himself in India. The two decades that he spent in South Africa were to be the making of the Mahatma. In this remarkable biography, Ramachandra Guha argues that Gandhi's ideas were fundamentally shaped before his return to India in 1915.
