Description

If anything she stood above me. But for her unfailing co-operation I might have been in the abyss... - M.K. Gandhi The contributions of Kasturba Gandhi to Indias struggle for Independence have not been given the critical position they deserve, argues Professor B.M. Bhalla in this seminal study, Kasturba Gandhi: A Biogra...phy. In its portrayal of Kasturba as an activist and wife, walking along with the Mahatma, first in South Africa and then in India, her story should be read in terms of the struggle of Indian women for identity, equality and selfempowerment. This biography delineates how she became an ardent follower of her husbands great mission and how she struggled to retain her individuality in difficult situations in public and private life. Her capacity to adapt to changed conditions and circumstances, her courage to face adversity, loss and dangers matched her husbands. By Gandhis own confession, his better half, this study is a vital re-assessment of Kasturba Gandhis position within the Indian freedom movement.
