Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 819234360X, Hardcover)This is the story of a boy who dreamed! What opportunities could there have been for the son of a humble and unlettered vegetable vendor? Vithal Balkrishna Gandhi started life in the most precarious conditions. From Ratnagiri to Bombay and onward to America, he persevered in his quest for an education, to rise above his birth and circumstances. It was to be a journey of incredible courage, from poverty to social success, on to the corridors of power. Perhaps destiny and fortune did smile upon him but Vithal Gandhi struggled through and earned every step of his way. He lived in challenging times, was in the front lines of India's freedom struggle and was privileged to have rubbed shoulders with the great patriots of the century. In many ways he was a child of his times, beating the odds and coming out stronger.
