The Gift of Anger
"Anger is good. It is an energy that compels us to define what is right and wrong." - Mahatma Gandhi, to his grandson, Arun This major new work of non-fiction illuminates ten vital, extraordinary life lessons taught to Arun Gandhi by his beloved grandfather. Told through the author's moving, often irreverent story of his years being raised at the iconic Sevagram ashram, Arun's charming memories of his grandfather are an engaging and often surprising read. They reveal a rare insight into Gandhi the man rather than just the icon, but throughout are balanced with the inspirational lessons themselves. Arun believes that the violence in the world today makes Gandhi's teachings more vital than ever, and The Gift of Anger places these lessons in a modern context, shedding new light on how Gandhi's principles can - and must - be applied to today's concerns.
