Mahatma Gandhi.

Mahatma Gandhi‘s spiritual journey began on 02 October, 1869 in Porbandar, in the lap of his mother, in the western coast of India. Gandhi as a child went to an elementary school where he found it difficult to remember the multiplication table. As a child, he was greatly influenced by the personal discipline of his mother and her religious pursuit of end long fastings, which made a permanent impression on the child.

Once in school, when he did not do well in his exams, his teacher told him to go and see and copy what his friend was doing. His confidence, did not allow him to do that. For a lifelong time, Gandhi had the confidence to stand alone and do what he believed.

Today the members of the Club read The Story of  My Experiments with Truth Retold by Nandini Nayar . It is published by Mango Books. This book is a wonderful account of where Gandhiji went, whom he met and what he did. It is also an account of Gandhi’s weaknesses and the mistakes he made.
