About the book
Raghu Kumar puts Gandhi in a multi-dimensional, philosophical and global perspective which will make an interesting reading. It is a valuable reading for anyone who wants to study Gandhi honestly.

Dr. Raghu Kumar, in the book titled ‘Gandhi a hope in despair’ perhaps succeeded in seducing the reader into the act of opening the book. His unassuming declaration that “This work is to convey to the readers, the essentials of my reading of Gandhi and the things I found in Gandhi as very precious to my mind. At the end of 150 years, I found Gandhi more readable than he was during the freedom struggle – thanks to his critics!” is perhaps a testimony to his honest intentions. This is a book that should adorn at least every library and every Center promoting literature on Gandhi to start with!
