Sunil Khilnani

An Autobiography
  • An Autobiography

  • 'I have nothing new to teach the world. Truth and non-violence are as old as the hills'

    Gandhi united India in a national movement and changed the course of history. In this classic autobiography, first published under the title The Story of My Experiments with Truth, he recounts his life from boyhood through the first stirrings of non-violent protest in South Africa to the early phase of his part in India's fight for independence. Setting out the principles behind his struggle against racism, violence and colonialism, this powerful work reveals the heart and mind of one of the world's greatest political and spiritual leaders.
