Studies of Gandhi's Hind Swaraj

by Dr. Jyotsna Kamat

First Published as a Series in Amma's Column

The book of 'Hind swaraj' was written by Gandhiji in 1908. He was on his return voyage from London to South Africa and wrote on the way. Hence it is often called 'Sermon on the sea'. It is a small book of about hundred pages but contains most of the principles Gandhi stood for. It became a Bible during Indian freedom struggle inspiring millions to resist British rule and adopt Swadeshi. Hind Swaraj is considered most relevant, universal and chief one among Gandhi's basic works.
