Love him or loathe him; respect him or not; Mohandas Gandhi, known as the father of our nation, is a historical figure known very well to the international diaspora and always respected by even his staunchest opponents, including the mighty British Empire. For an individual who opposed an empire with nothing more than a humble yet firm voice and a walking stick, it is no surprise his statue stands grandly opposite the British Parliament in London.
However, this book studies him in the light of various incidents and highlights the values that came out from them — and most importantly — how businesses can adapt the same. Often through his life, the “Mahatma” has come across as a salesman, a PR manager, A CEO, A HR Manager, a business leader and even devil’s advocate, thus showing his commitment to core human values while harnessing the necessary agility, flexibility and exemplary negotiation skills of a true leader. This book tries to study his life and link it to modern day business principles.
