Which were the books written by Gandhiji?



              Gandhiji was a good writer and a voracious reader. Gandhiji wrote many articles on various topics from hygiene to the development of villages. But he wrote only three books.

               Most prominent among them are Gandhiji’s autobiography ‘The Story of My Experiments with Truth’, which covers Gandhiji’s life from his early childhood to 1921. 







                  The second book was ‘Hind Swaraj or Indian Home Rule’. This was written in 1909. In this book, Gandhiji expresses his views on various subjects such as Swaraj, modern civilization, mechanization etc. The book was originally written in Gujarati, and it was banned by the British. Gandhiji later translated it into English, but the translated version was not banned by the British. 









                       The third book was ‘The Key to Health’ which was written by Gandhiji while he was in the Aga Khan Palace at Pune during 1942-1944. The book was written in Gujarati, and later translated to English by Dr. Sushila Nayyar under Gandhiji’s own guidance.
