*Gandhi: Part One*
on October 16, 2013
This should be titled *Gandhi: Part One,* because his story ends before the greatest events in his life that made him world famous.
He was a brilliant leader, organizer, and developer of the non-participation/passive resistance approach to civil disobedience.
His diet and medical advice leave much to be desired. His favorite cure-all is a poultice of clean earth on the skin. His strict vegetarianism in contraindicated when at a point near death he gives in, drinks goat's milk, and gets better.
He's at his best when discussing comparative religion.
Otherwise, the journal style simply does not make for stimulating reading.
