My Gandhi Story
While the artist was inspired to paint Gandhi’s life simply because “he was like us”, the curating of the visuals was inspired by the delightful details in the paintings, picked and highlighted with care. There are the recurring motifs of buying a ticket and going on a journey by ship and by train, of physical work, the capturing of a moment rather than movement… Like the three creators behind the book, there are three voices that tell the story of Rajesh the narrator, the questioning child and Gandhiji or Bapu himself, all coming together to introduce young children to the great man called Mahatma Gandhi.
