I am a bibliophile and love reading all genre of books. Today I am going to talk about a book that I loved reading. Although there are many I would like to read again, but I think Mahatma Gandhi’s autobiography, ‘My Experiments with the Truth’ has by far been the most impressive book that I have read. I remember I went to get a novel to read and randomly picked this one because I wanted to read Gandhi’s opinion on the entire freedom struggle. It was back in 2014, during my last year of college when I read this book.

The book is Gandhi’s autobiography, it includes special highlights on events that had a major impact on Gandhi’s life story. The book gives an inside view on how Gandhi shaped himself, what sacrifices he made and how he stood by truth even in the darkest of times.

One such event includes the day Gandhi fell ill, the doctors advised him to take some tea as it would help him in recovering faster. It was almost essential for him in his medical condition. But earlier he had pledged that he would not consume meats, spices, eggs or tea, as at the time some research suggested it to be harmful to the body. No matter what the doctors had to say, Gandhi did not consume his tea. I was fascinated by the strong determination the man had.

The story revolves around his life and gives an inner view on the reasons behind the actions taken by him as a leader. I loved the book because it taught me the most important lesson of my life: one should always speak the truth and be ready to die for it.

Mahatma Gandhi was surely a man of strong and true character and in my viewpoint, anyone who reads this novel surely brings home the idea of being a better person.
