After my childhood, “Satyana Prayogo Athva Atmakatha” is the first autobiography of a political leader I’ve read. Mahatma Gandhi is so famous that not a single Indian I know who doesn’t know him and his picture is printed on each Indian banknote. Gandhi’s Autobiography is one of the best seller books, his book has been translated into so many languages. I’ve read this book in the Gujarati language.
This book has started with his childhood and marriage story. He lived in India, England and different parts of South Africa for a specific period of time.
Mahatma is famous for his principles of truth and non-violence in the world. In the book, he mentioned his food experiments in consideration of health, vegetarianism and religious perspective. He shared what to follow and what not why on the basis of his food examination. He not only shares his good things, but also he has shared his mistakes and learning points with us. In addition to this, he shared the medical treatment he used to follow.
He also has mentioned his other books in this book for specific events in detail reference. In this book, he named each character from his parents to the person who came across a specific occurrence. We can closely understand his core values such as truth, non-violence from this book.
In order to learn needful morals from his life, all Indians must read this book once and better if they can manage to read it in their earlier life.
This book is available in the market at a very reasonable price for the Gujarati Language.
