How many times are kids supposed to study Gandhi? Come September and outcomes the bald-head wig, round glasses, white dhoti, tall stick... That's about the extent of how today's kids engage with the Mahatma.
Chandrashekhar is one such teen. Bored by the annual Gandhi projects, he wonders if his teacher is being too unreasonable in asking them to be Gandhi. And then his world is shaken by events that rock him to the core, forcing him to dig deep and not just find his 'inner Gandhi' but become Gandhi. Not for a day or two, but maybe even for life. This is a novel that explores not Gandhi the man or his life as a leader, but really the Gandhian way that must remain relevant to us. Especially today, when the world is becoming increasingly steeped in violence and hate.
