ONLINE BOOKS > IS GANDHI OUT OF DATE? > Preface
The first part of this pamphlet was written early as 1969 for an All-India Essay Competition held in the observation of the Gandhiji's Birth Centenary year. Though it was judged as best it has been lying with me and since Mumbai Sarvodaya Mandal was prepared to publish I touched it only here and there and left practically in it's original form, though it bears the impress of the times.
However, to make amends for it I have add a second part to it wherein important world problems have been discussed in very brief light of Gandhiji's thinking. I hope they both together will be found useful by the readers.
I am highly thankful to my friend Shri Daniel Mazgaonkar for his initiative in the publication of this pamphlet and still more to Smt. Sunandatai Kalushte, the chairperson of Mumbai Sarvodaya Mandal for undertaking it.
