About the Book:

Nelson Mandela is the African Gandhi for the Indians. The book is a tribute to the noble soul and as with the tributes it underlines the wisdom of Mandela. No other person, not even our own Gandhiji, suffered so much for getting his people freedom from apartheid and racial discrimination. The author of the book lived in Africa and was able to sense the kind of love and affection Africans have for Madiba. Though largely biographical and based on the accounts narrated by Mandela in his work “Long Walk to Freedom”, the book discusses in depth the philosophy and message of “a giant of history who moved a nation toward justice and in the process moved billions around the world.”
