books on mahatma gandhi

In Mann Ki Baat, Narendra Modi revealed to be greatly inspired and influenced by Benjamin Franklin and even insisted his country people to once read his biography, Barack Obama once again reaffirmed Gandhiji’s and his values deep influence on him. On the occasion of 67th Death Anniversary the whole world will once again remember bapu’s teaching and values. Also will be releasing the much awaited book The Death and Afterlife of Mahatma Gandhi by Makarand R. Paranjape.

The death and afterlife of Mahatma Gandhi is an explosive and original analysis of the assassination of the ‘Father of the Nation’. Who is responsible for the Mahatma’s death? Just one determined zealot, the larger ideology that supported him, the congress-led government that failed to protect him or a vast majority of Indians and their descendants who considered Gandhi irrelevant and endorsed violence instead?

Paranjape’s meticulous study culminates in his reading of Gandhi’s last six months in Delhi where, from the very edge of the grave, he wrought what was perhaps his greatest miracle-the saving of Delhi and thus of India itself from the internecine bloodshed of partition. Paranjape, taking a cue from the Mahatma himself, also shows us a way to expiate our guilt and to heal the wounds of an ancient civilization torn into two. This is a brilliant, far-reaching and profound exploration of the meaning of the Mahatma’s death.
