Gandhi’s pictorial biography
Gandhi’s pictorial biography “Gandhi” It is not a word or a surname, but a one-faced overall ideology that made Mohandas his father and father before he took the form of a Mahatma and a nation. Gandhism, from reformers like Martin Luther King to influencers like Nelson Mandela, can show the right direction to this turbulent-unstable world. To explain this Gandhism, from Gandhi himself to Romain, and from biographers like Stanley Wolpert to Rajmohan Gandhi, a representative of Gandhi’s family heritage, and how many veterans have interpreted in various aspects. This is the reason that in the last century, many creations roamed on Gandhi’s axis. Perhaps it is Gandhi’s fascination that publisher Pramod Kapoor chose Gandhi as a writer to begin with. Looking at his ‘Gandhi is an illustrated biography’, even if it is his first book as a writer, he has researched it for many years.
Creating something new on a person who has already created so much becomes a formidable challenge. Kapoor has made it easy with a wide variety of materials, extensive references, rare paintings and attractive presentation. In it, all the important events and episodes related to Gandhi’s life are presented in a very interesting style. Since the book contains all the pictures, the textual content is not very elaborate, but due to its essence it gives a feeling of perfection. This book takes the journey of a normal human being to a great man. This included Gandhi’s birth, family, marriage, migration to London for study, failed advocacy on his return home, then migration to South Africa, emerging as a messiah with his own unique experiments, and then the arrival of homage to the superintendent of honor and freedom. There is a description of the journey of becoming the pioneers which overwhelms the reader.
The book tells how a young man who goes abroad for studies is excluded from his caste and how the same person establishes his acceptance in the country and the world. How does a person, who is once affected by foreign glare, set the new paradigm of moral purity by overriding all materiality. A person who dedicates a full ten minutes of hairstyle before leaving the house, how does that person give up special privileges that are available during the journey. Such honesty about the means and means to tell your wife that if there is a problem in cooking with a cotton sari, then it is better not to cook for them.
The book also explores Gandhi’s relationship with many contemporary figures like Tagore, Nehru, Patel, Bose, Jinnah, Gokhale and Tilak. It also strings many interesting episodes. For example, Gandhi played the role of a midwife at the birth of his child, what book inspired him so much that he even translated it into Gujarati, whose domestic helpers in Patna treated Gandhi and his companions so harshly that Gandhi Went to stay with another of his acquaintances. There is also the context of Gandhi’s speech on the occasion of the establishment of BHU, in which the persuasion and persuasion of Mahamana did not work in front of the kings and emperors who were disturbed by his speech.
It has references from Gandhi’s biographers like Louis Fisher to all the stalwarts. Except for the use of some inappropriate words, Madan Soni’s translation is so good that the book does not even give the impression of being translated. Composed of a mix of well-written text, rare illustrations and unique presentation, this book provides a pleasant review for those familiar with Gandhi’s story, and has also become a perfect fit for new recruits in Gandhi’s stream. A book made from presentation to collectibles is truly gift-worthy.
