EVERYONE has their own story of Gandhi — and in this book, which came out of a set of four large paintings, an artist of the Warli tradition, an animation filmmaker and a storyteller come together in a unique collaboration to create a very visual Gandhi story. While the artist was inspired to paint Gandhi's life simply because “he was like us”, the curating of the visuals was inspired by the delightful details in the paintings, picked and highlighted with care. There are the recurring motifs of buying a ticket and going on a journey by ship and by train, of physical work, the capturing of a moment rather than movement… Like the three creators behind the book, there are three voices that tell the story — of Rajesh the narrator, the questioning child, and Gandhiji or Bapu himself, all coming together to introduce young children to the great man called Mahatma Gandhi.

Not just another Gandhi story

The text is simple, easily understandable, and the illustrations help in making the book different, from other Gandhi stories. And instead of just listing out his virtues, or the sacrifices he made for the country, the story is more a conversation, between us and Gandhi himself, as he explains his feelings, or decisions, while key-facts are given as well. The art-work brings everything to life... the illustrations grab your attention, with their simple lines and colors; the signature Warli pictures relating Gandhi’s life, and highlighting significant events such as the Salt Satyagraha.
