Description

The present work represents an attempt by one who had the opportunity at first hand and the insight to represent the events of Mahatma Gandhi's life correctly——Pyarelal, secretary to Gandhi. This book deals with the last 21 months of Gandhiji'’s life, from after his release from detention in the Aga Khan’'s palace in May 1944. It describes in fair detail the political developments of 1946––47 resulting from the British government’s intention to relinquish power in India.

The last volume of Pyarelal’'s biography of Gandhi, The Last Phase, has been condensed by Meghani into an easy-to-read, lucid account to make it more accessible to the general reader.

Praise
