About the title Gandhi Ji
Ji
is a suffix added to a name in India to indicate respect or affection; so the mother is mata ji or mummy ji. The father is pita ji or papa ji. Even the holy river Ganges is reverentially called Ganga ji. In his very popular TV quiz show, the veteran Bollywood star Amitabh Bachchan affectionately addressed his desktop computer as computer ji. Mohandas Karamchand, for us Indians, is never Gandhi – he is always Gandhi ji.

On the cover
"Gandhi the Father of the Nation as India"
Postage stamp issued by the Govt. of India in 2000, based on a cartoon by Ranga

Foreword
This is a unique way of bringing the story of Gandhiji to the attention of the youth of India.  Human life is short enough and should not be wasted in hate and violence. This book is a small step towards a larger goal for humanity.

Foreword

India has numerous admirers of Gandhi, quite a few critics, and a smaller number who actually know who he was, what he did, what happened to him, and what he stood for. Dr VK Kapoor belongs to the last-named minority.

Dr Kapoor's sustained interest in Gandhi comes across from this quiz put together by him. It is a fine achievement, an equally fine resource for teachers, and a riveting way of informing a new generation about a remarkable life that ended nearly sixty years ago.

Young and old will find the quiz absorbing and instructive. I commend it strongly and congratulate Dr Kapoor.

During the Emergency era, the Author was an MBBS student at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi and occupied an office in the Students’ Union. In order to ‘teach them a lesson’ for their protests against some of the draconian measures taken by the Administration, the Institute authorities cancelled the annual convocation that year. The Students’ Union then organized a ‘protest’ convocation and invited Mr Rajmohan Gandhi as the Chief Guest who very kindly obliged. Incidentally, the Author acted as the ‘Director’ of the AIIMS at this protest convocation. Surprisingly, the AIIMS authorities allowed the Students’ Union to have the convocation in the beautiful JL Nehru Auditorium on the campus where it is annually held.
