GANDHI: FACTS AND LITTLE KNOWN STORIES ABOUT THE INDIAN THAT SHOOK THE WORLD
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was not born with the physical qualities of a leader. A weak, shy and introverted child like him with the fear of both God and man would be expected to be soon absorbed into the collective consciousness and belief systems shared by the - almost half a billion - Indians of his time: not trying to make a change, but trying to make a living.
What happened to Mohandas? Where did that fearful child find the courage to think differently, and most importantly, to act differently?
In his book, Mahatma Gandhi Facts and Surprising Unknown Stories, Barry Powell, using storytelling, sheds light on Mohandas Gandhi's personality as well as the emotional adventures that contributed to the shaping of his unique leadership style.
