Why is Gandhiji’s autobiography, “The Story of My Experiments with Truth”, an inspiration to generations?

            Mahatma Gandhi’s autobiography, ‘The Story of My Experiments with Truth’ is indeed a great work written with a mighty pen that was his life.

            It was not first published in book form, and appeared in weekly installments, in his journal ‘Navjivan’ from 1925 to 1929.

            This was written originally in Gujarati, and later translated to English by his notable disciple, Mahadev Desai.

            It has chapters on his childhood, experiences in England, and in South Africa. It records the events of his life from his childhood till 1921. He melted the hearts of thousands of people with his story about his principles of Satyagraha. He regarded it as a tale of experiments with life, and with truth.

            In the present era of chaos and falsehoods, this work stands out as a symbolic representation of truth and order. He talked about his own philosophy of life that stood the test of time.
