Interesting dispelling of the myths about Gandi particularly for a westerner who's main source of info was the Ben Kingsley portrayal of him in the movie.

This short book is actually an Annual Gandhi Lecture for the International Association of Gandhian Studies, by Gandhi scholar Mark Shepard. Shepard debunks a number of myths or ideas we have about Gandhi. In particular, he focuses on nonviolence, passive resistance, and civil disobedience. I found it helpful. This is an important book for those wishing to understand Gandhi better. It's downloadable to your computer from Amazon's Kindle store for 99 cents.

A must read.....there are very few texts in which the author is not completely biased towards gandhi and his ideologies.....though mark shepherd also seems to be a big fan of gandhi and his ways but he still has done an exceptional job.....and am glad most of what he is trying to explain did get through my filter....

Very mind opening. Reveals many of the common misconceptions about Gandhi. Magnificent short story.
