The third book of SCM QUIZ WIZ series – GANDHI THROUGH THE EYES OF CHILDREN – is dedicated to children and young people of our time. Who does not know Gandhi, the Mahatma? Which country is in the world where the name of Gandhi is not present in any form? And which one of the modern leaders striving for humanitarian values and world peace can conscientiously deny the impact of Gandhi on his vision and mission? But knowing Gandhi just by his name and as an immortal personality is not enough. Gandhi needs to be explored even more in this era of moral chaos and of the threatening signs to peace and universal brotherhood. This book will not only serve as a barometer to test the reader’s basic knowledge about Mahatma Gandhi but also urge him or her to read more about him and truly fathom the depth of these prophetic words of Albert Einstein: “A leader of his people, unsupported by outward authority; a politician whose success rests not upon craft nor mastery of technical devices, but simply on the convincing power of his personality; a victorious fighter who has always scorned the use of force; a man of wisdom and humility, armed with resolve and inflexible consistency, who has devoted all his strength to the uplifting of his people and the betterment of their lot; a man who has confronted the brutality of Europe with the dignity of the simple human being, and thus at all times risen superior. Generations to come, it may be, will scarce believe that such one as this ever in flesh and blood walked upon this earth.”
I am involved in writing poems, novels, stories and other useful books since my early youth. After graduating from Mithila University (India), I adopted a career as a language teacher and served at several schools. I further served as Office Secretary of the Continental Board of Baha’i Counsellors in Asia (Gwalior office) where I was responsible for independently handling correspondence with Baha’i and non-Baha’i international institutions and developing study materials. I also served, during the same time, on the Translation & Review Committee of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of India and translated a number of books including the Most Holy Book of the Baha’i Faith (by Baha’u’llah), Covenant (by Lowell Johnson), The Bab – The Herald of the Day of Days (H.M. Balyuji) among others.
I am presently collaborating with a number of reputed translation agencies of India and abroad as a freelance writer and translator and have served in that capacity scores of international clients and companies of Australia, Canada, India, UK and USA. My books “Did I Exist Before ....?” published by Pustak Mahal (www.pustakmahal.com) and “A Writer’s Manual” published by V&S Publishers, New Delhi, are carving out a niche in the market.
