Summary

To mark the 150th anniversary of Gandhi's birth, DK presents the audiobook of The Story of My Experiments with Truth: An Autobiography, narrated by Sagar Arya.

Gandhi's nonviolent struggles against racism, violence and colonialism in South Africa and India had brought him to such a level of notoriety and adulation that when asked to write an autobiography midway through his career, he took it as an opportunity to explain himself. 

He feared the enthusiasm for his ideas tended to exceed a deeper understanding of his quest for truth rooted in devotion to God. His attempts to get closer to this divine power led him to seek purity through simple living, dietary practices, celibacy and a life without violence. 

This is not a straightforward narrative biography. In The Story of My Experiments with Truth: An Autobiography, Gandhi offers his life story as a reference for those who would follow in his footsteps.

A well-known Indian actor, Sagar Arya has narrated over 35 audiobooks, including White Teeth by Zadie Smith, Love Like Blood by Mark Billingham and audiobooks by Amish, and he brings his wealth of knowledge to this production. His television credits include A Touch of Frost, Hunted, Spooks, Casualty and Holby City. He appeared as Claudio in RSC's Much Ado About Nothing as well as Twelfth Night (West End), The Great Game (Tricycle) and A Fine Balance (Hampstead).

A fascinating and quite detailed biography

It seemed quite long, but when you have as many accomplishments and challenges as this guy did, then I guess, the length automatically follows.
Absolutely fascinating.

Leadership in context

A very long but inspiring book. Difficult to follow in most cases because of the Indian names, cities, traditions that were referenced however, the take out of from this book is, “to be a true leader you have to be ready to serve the people with everything within and without with no reason to compromise TRUTH even in the face of difficulties”.

The story of self control and public service

It’s through ‘Ahimsa’ that God can be perceived and it’s through ‘Sachia Garah’ that society can be transformed. Gandhi lived according to what he believed in, this book contains the story that how did he put his beliefs to practice and what outcomes did he experience. At the end turn of 19th century when Darwin, Einstein and Freud were putting forward their scientific theories, Gandhi was exploring some spiritual domains.

Spirit of Gandhi

Sagar Arya is so authentic that I felt that Gandhi himself was narrating his authobiography. Great book by great Man combined with great narration gave me 20+ ours of great experience.
