Description

In The Shadow of The Mahatma

by G. D. Birla

In the Shadow of the Mahatma, much more than a compilation of correspondence the author had with Mahatma Gandhi is a penetrating chronicle of the events, intrigues and turbulence that went into India’s freedom struggle, culminating in independence.

The author writes an elaborate commentary on the efforts that went, not only towards achieving self-rule, but also towards social change, mass education, rural reform, the battle against caste discrimination and the building up of an indigenous class of civil servants capable of efficiently governing the country after the departure of the colonists.



Throughout the narrative spanning thirty-eight years, the guiding force for GD Babu was the Mahatma. As such, the central theme of the book is the interaction between these two, but GD Babu fills in the background with all the developments that were taking place at several levels throughout the period, as relevant to the freedom struggle led by the Mahatma.

About The Author:

Through India's arduous times of the 1850s, the Birla business expanded rapidly. In the early part of the 20th century, the Group's founding father, Ghanshyamdas Birla, G.D.Birla, set up industries in critical sectors such as textiles and fibre, aluminium, cement and chemicals. As a close confidante of Mahatma Gandhi, he played an active role in the Indian freedom struggle. He represented India at the first and second round-table conference in London, along with Gandhiji. It was at "Birla House" in Delhi that the luminaries of the Indian freedom struggle often met to plot the downfall of the British Raj.

Ghanshyamdas Birla found no contradiction in pursuing business goals with the dedication of a saint, emerging as one of the foremost industrialists of pre-independence India.
