(Pre)Teen Mahatma

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi's autobiography,  edited by Mahadev Desai andwith illustrations by Lalitha Zackariah comes from Oxford University Press (India)


My Early Life is a autobiography of Mahatama Gandhi.  One of the earliest books developed by the Press in India, My Early Life (1932) is a concise version of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi’s autobiography. The charming little book took shape while Gandhi was in prison, guiding the expert hand of Mahadev Desai, his secretary, at every step of its making.

My Early Life: An Illustrated Story covers the formative years (1869–1914) of Gandhi’s life—from early childhood, schooldays, and teenage desires and confessions to the trip to England and struggle thereafter as a young attorney to the austere life in South Africa. This illustrated edition includes contextual notes and evocative line drawings to complement the narrative. A flesh-and-blood story of an inspirational journey—from ‘Mohandas to Mahatma’—this book will capture the imagination of children, young adults, and those keen on knowing about Gandhi’s early life.
