The Mahatma is an account of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi’s days in riot-hit Noakhali (now in Bangladesh). It explores the Mahatma’s struggle to reconcile his ideals of truth and non-violence with ugly realities of communalism, partition and political opportunism. The narrative is brought alive with well-rounded cameos of personalities from those turbulent pre-partition years. Set in rural East Bengal, the novel uses simple imagery and a fresh idiom to convey its essence of Gandhian simplicity.
