Gandhi on Health: This book shows that Gandhi intended, 100 years ago, to become a professional British-trained M.D., that after abandoning that idea and criticizing Western medicine he practiced amateur healing for the rest of his life (sometimes with notable success), that he admired some Western-type doc­tors and would sometimes dis­card his own dogmas about health care, that he practiced palliative care (for Kas­turba) and euthanasia(!), and that he foresaw that the right to subsidized health care could be maintained only if the people perform their corresponding duty of taking good care of themselves in terms of exercise, weight, hygiene etc.

Kasturi Gandh: A biographical sketch of Kasturba Gandhi: an unlettered woman who was witness to some of the greatest times and happenings of modern Indian history by being an active contributor to the life of its chief architect. Her life had the thrill of a small town woman migrating across ocean to have a cross cultural cohabitation, sufferings of a social outcaste and the struggle of a rebel; getting lynched and jail terms were part of her normal routine.
She was an emotional mother, passionate wife, self–empowered self; yet Kasturba rose above all these bounds to be a matriarch of a cosmopolitan community in her ashram in particular and her nation family at large.
Her critical enquiry into Gandhi’s position helped the latter retune his thought and action. In that sense she was an instrument in the making of the Mahatma.
Those came in contact with her instantly experienced the purity of her heart and simplicity; those associated with her for long understood the steely heart and unbreakable resolve that led her to supreme sacrifice for the cause of human family. That is why Gandhiji called her ‘Jagadamba’. This lucid book is worth reading as the life of the protagonist is filled with insightful realism for the new generation to pick up.
