Born in 1869 in what was then Porbandar, India, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was known as the Father of India, a man revered around the world for promoting nonviolent resistance. He was given the name Mahatma, which means the great-souled one, and during his 78-year life, the trained lawyer and spiritually aesthetic man accumulated much wisdom which remains relevant today.
Dr. Kapur’s 70-page book divides Gandhi’s wisdom into 66 rules for well-being, dealing with people, and what he calls “Rules for All Seasons.” For example, Rule 62 is “good minds are better than good looks.”
V.K. Raju, president and founder of EFA said, “We are delighted to bring the wisdom of the great Mahatma Gandhi to a new audience and to remind the world that love and nonviolence and caring for the underprivileged should be our highest priorities. Here at the EFA, we follow his principles.”
