About the Book:
Mahatma Gandhi motivated the Indian and the world at large by an astounding amount of written and spoken words. The voluminous work left behind by Gandhiji for posterity is at once enlightening, enriching but mind-boggling. Gandhiji has asked us to understand the spirit of his writing and not merely find the meanings. For, every term Gandhiji uses, has different connotations in different contexts. Gandhian thought processes promote a heightened historical, political, spiritual and of course an academic interest through a simple and direct language. The author has delved deep into Gandhiji's colossal collection of writing to compile the six volumes of Encyclopaedia. It is a great job of discerning mind that has done the judicious selection. More than 1000 subject-headings have been arranged in an alphabetical order so as to facilitate an easy reference to any subject one may be interested in or wish to know Gandhiji's opinion. The volumes will be definitely of perennial value, as an excellent reference material to scholars of all disciplines interested in Gandhian Thought.
