Mahatma Gandhi as never seen before - unless you knew him personally!

Mumbai, 5 October 2016 – Devadas Gandhi, the youngest son of the Mahatma, had the dream to document his father’s life by photographs day-by-day. It’s only now, 59 years after his death, that his dream comes true. The GandhiServe India Trust has compiled and published a large-size coffee table book of 692 pages containing 1281 photographs, maps, letters, cartoons and newspaper articles documenting the life and work of the Father of the Nation minutely. In a monumental effort the Mumbai-based charitable institution has collected thousands of photographs from sources allover and got them colourized according to the historic settings. In an interdisciplinary project Gandhi scholars, historians, photo experts and graphic designers joined hands in order to turn black and white photographs into colour images, thus making them true documents of history. Due to extensive research and technical advancement this photo biography presents the Apostle of Nonviolence as natural and sharp as never seen before.

Apart of the rare archival material the book presents Gandhi’s life story in an easy-to-read way, and is supported by well-selected quotations by Gandhi on 37 subjects which give a profound insight in the Mahatma’s view of the world.

The foreword has been written by eminent sociologist and social reformer, Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak, who is also the founder of Sulabh Sanitation Movement.

This definitive photo biography of Mahatma Gandhi has been brought on its way on 2nd October by Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, followed by a grand public function at New Delhi on 5th October.

Apart of various online stores the book can be ordered through its website www.mahatmabook.com.
