Going to Wipe Their Tears

Going to Wipe Their Tears

By (author) Pyarelal Nayar


  • A heartrending account of Mahatma Gandhi's valiant, single-handed struggle
Full Description

The present work represents an attempt by one who had the opportunity at first hand and the insight to represent the events correctly – Pyarelal Nayar, secretary to Gandhi. The Last Phase deals with the last 21 months of Gandhiji’s life beginning with his release from detention in the Aga Khan’s palace in May 1944. It describes in fair detail the political developments of those years resulting from the British government’s intention to relinquish power in India. Pyarelal says: “During those fateful days, like a Titan he rushed from one danger spot to another to prop up the crumbling heavens.” The author has attempted to explain the epic events of 1946-47. The last volume of Pyarelal’s biography of Gandhi has been condensed by Meghani into an easy-to-read, lucid account to make it more accessible to the general reader.
