Book Description

Kasturba Gandhi (née Kapadia) was born on April 11, 1869, at Porbandar, Gujrat. She married Gandhiji at the tender age of thirteen. A popular adage says that there is a woman behind every successful man. This statement appears to be literally true when it comes to Kasturba who adopted all the edicts, rights or wrongs of Gandhiji and played a vital role in transforming Gandhi into Mahatma Gandhi. She walked shoulder to shoulder with him in jails and during the racial discrimination movement in South Africa. Her popularity was humongous, and Gandhiji once said, “Those people who came into close contact with me and Ba, many among them had more faith in Ba than in me.” Ba breathed her last on February 22, 1944, in a prison. This biography of Kasturba Gandhi enables us to get a clear glimpse into the soul of a girl, who played a pivotal role during the years of freedom struggle in India from the tender age of thirteen to her death.
