Synopsis

Gandhi's life story unfolds from his early influences to his student days in London; how the racial prejudices that he faced in South Africa and the books of Leo Tolstoy, Adolf Just and others shaped the future Mahatma to use Satyagraha (Truth force) as a potent force both in South Africa to secure the Indians' rights there and later in India to achieve freedom from British Rule; his experiments with Satya (Truth) and his concept of Brahmacharya (Continence); his constant fasts to achieve his goals; his work in the social upliftment of the untouchables (lower caste people) who he called Harijan (children of God); his various marches, prayer meetings, public speeches and parleys with Viceroys; his agony at Hindu-Muslim communal tension and later partition of India along religious lines into Hindu India and Muslim Pakistan and finally his crown achievement in the form of freedom for India. The Mahatma lives on in the public mind for those who seek to achieve their goals using peace and truth as potent forces not just in India but all over the world.
