Gandhi my father ( Visual )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in Hindi and English and held by 173 libraries worldwide
"The world knows about Mahatma Gandhi's role in the Indian freedom movement and as a social reformer. But there are large gaps in our knowledge of Gandhi as a person and a family man, particularly the tumultuous relationship with Harilal, his eldest son. Set against one of politically most trublent times in India, the film tells an intensely personal story of a father struggling to resolve the destinies of his country and that of his son. Not to be forgotten is the role of Gandhi's wife, Kasturba, who was caught between the traditional, unquestioning loyality of a Hindu wife to her husband and her love for the son. Mahatma Gandhi could transform the soul of a nation but could not save the soul of his own son"--Container.
