He is the Mahatma, a man the world venerates as a prophet of peace. But for Kastur, the child bride who married the boy next door, Mohandas was a sexually-driven, self-righteous, and overbearing husband.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was sworn to poverty, celibacy and the cause for India’s freedom; Kastur spent sixty-two years of her life, juggling the roles of a devoted wife, a satyagrahi and sacrificing mother, who was eclipsed because of a man who almost became God for India’s multitude. Gandhi was an intolerant father to Harilal, his wayward son, driven to debauchery; Kasturba paid the price for her son’s unending misery.

Kastur is long dead, but she lives on in the pages of her diary…. Renowned author Neelima Dalmia Adhar lays it bare to tell the world what it meant to be Kasturba Gandhi, wife of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi – in a gripping tale of unconditional love, passion, sex, ecstasy and the ultimate liberation that every woman seeks.

Author’s disclaimer : This book is an imaginary chronicle of the life of Kasturba Gandhi. Historical facts form the backdrop of this book, but there was no ‘secret’ diary maintained by kasturba Gandhi, wife of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi.
