Beginning with his birth in 1869, the book chronicles his childhood, his years of study in London, and his tenure as a lawyer in South Africa. Guha draws on the private files of Gandhi's colleagues and coworkers, as well as newspapers and court documents from the time period, to weave an engaging storey of how Gandhi's formative years affected his worldview.

'The Good Boatman' by Rajmohan Gandhi

Rajmohan Gandhi, the book's author, is a well-known biographer and the great-grandson of the guy he's writing about.

​My Dear Bapu: Letters from C. Rajagopalachari to Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, Devadas Gandhi and Gopalkrishna Gandhi

Rajaji or Chakravarti Rajagopalachari requires little introduction because his contribution to India's freedom struggle is immeasurable. He was India's first and only Indian-born governor-general, as well as a leader of the Indian National Congress. The Mahatma referred to him as his "conscience keeper" and, at one point, his "sole probable successor." From 1920 to 1945, they corresponded via letters, which are included in this book. The conversation not only provides insight into their lives, but also fuel for thought.
