This year, we are celebrating the 150 birth anniversary of Gandhi and the 75 anniversary of India's independence. Every year, a few questions are asked directly from the life and ideology of Gandhi in preliminary and/or mains examinations. Apart from this, another set of questions are asked in GS papers which require the knowledge of Gandhi's contribution to the making of modern India - these are indirect questions or questions which touch the life and teachings of the great man. Moreover, Gandhi is a frequent subject of questions asked

during the interviews after the prelims and mains, where candidates' capability of absorbing and applying Gandhian principles is often tested. Thus, virtually, at every stage of the UPSC exam, Gandhi's thoughts and actions are fertile grounds for questions. It is, therefore, imperative for the students to have a deep understanding about Gandhi, his thoughts and influence.

This book presents an original and provocative analysis of Gandhi's contributions and enlightens the readers with Gandhian views on ethics, education, religion, human nature and society. The book gives its readers a thorough understanding of Gandhian thoughts which focused on the ultimate welfare of humanity. Thus, apart from the civil services aspirants, the book will be useful for other examinations which test general studies and for anybody who is interested in learning about the Mahatma!
