The man who became one with Universal Being.
This book describes Mahatma in the views of a western thinker,philosopher,disciple and friend in Romain Rolland.
The book begins with praise for Mahatma, is filled with lots and lots of details surrounding Gandhi,Tagore and others and ends with absolute praise.
" This was Gandhi's message, The only thing which is missing is a Cross."
Also gives details about Gandhi's thought and methods which could be said ( and many criticized) as medieval ways.
Other details which are described as Gandhi toiled for 20 years in South Africa before coming to India or being public known is worth knowing as Rolland points out ( well in 1920) that day's politicians are short-sighted and people yearn for immediate results.
Gandhi pulling out of Bardoli andolan when violence broke at Chauri Chora; the plans had united the whole India against British and for Swades. Many people opposed Gandhi for bringing down at such a stage.
Gandhi keeping on to his philosophy with the means ( as Non-Violence and civil-disobedience) should be met and did not keep the thought at End (India against British).
Points out well that: " Days were when Might was powerful over Right. And today (1924!) Might is Right. And this man is proving otherwise."
