Numerous books have been written about the legendary Mahatma Gandhi, the man who freed India, but nothing about the woman who shared his successes and failures.
Known simply as 'Ba - - Mother', to millions of people in India, she is truly the forgotten woman, whom history has side-lined. The woman who shared Gandhi's loves, his sorrows, his triumphs and his tragedies. Together since childhood she knew the flaws and frailties of the man behind the legend.
They say that behind each great man there is a woman. But Kastur was not the woman behind the man. She was the one who stood by his die, even being imprisoned with him on several occasions. She overcame many obstacles as she gave up a life of wealth for one of utter poverty.
Other Gandhi biographers have written about the legend. This is the story of the human being. The husband, the father, the man, as seen through the eyes of his wife and his grandson.
