Life in the shadow of greatness is not always easy for that person’s family. And when he is someone like the revered and inspirational Mahatma Gandhi, the task is all the more challenging. Mahatma Gandhi defined India’s moral compass and set an example through his life of simplicity and truth. When the need arose, he was also a loving and affectionate grandfather. Imagine, living with someone like Bapu, who was worshipped almost as God..

Arun Manilal Gandhi was the lucky one, who was sent to India by his South Africa based parents to live in the Ashram with his grandparents.

This remarkable personal account by Arun Gandhi is a must read for those wanting to understand what life with the Mahatma must have been.
