There is a reason as to why there can never be another Mahatma Gandhi. ‘The Story of My Experiments with Truth’ is the compelling autobiography of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, who in his quest for freedom of his country, inspired millions with the strength of his willpower and personal actions. His immovable belief in truth and non-violence even in the most difficult situations made him a true hero. India has seen many heroes rise and sacrifice themselves for the greater good, but rarely has there been a man as great and as noble as Mahatma Gandhi who captured the imagination of the whole world. He is a ‘Maha-atma’ in the truest sense of the word. The book traces the unordinary journey of an ordinary man who became one of the main pillars of the Indian independence movement. There has never been a biography so honest in its attempt. One of the major assets of the book is that it has been writing in an easy to understand language.
The book is an overall account of his long journey wherein he had to deal with travesties and social issues using his ideology of truth, will power, self-discipline, honesty, his understanding of Satyagraha and his lifestyle of vegetarianism. The most amiable aspect of this book is that not once does Gandhi try to over emphasize his achievements and victories. His humble nature shines throughout and his belief in God is unshakable. Trust, according to him, is the reward for all of his great achievements. This autobiography is truly the mark of a great mind. Anyone who bases their ideologies on Gandhi can cause a significant change in his/her life for the better. Gandhi depicts honest records of his own internal psychological and personal struggles.
