Publisher's Summary

To mark the 150th anniversary of Gandhi's birth, DK presents the audiobook of The Story of My Experiments with Truth: An Autobiography, narrated by Sagar Arya.

Gandhi's nonviolent struggles against racism, violence and colonialism in South Africa and India had brought him to such a level of notoriety and adulation that when asked to write an autobiography midway through his career, he took it as an opportunity to explain himself. 

He feared the enthusiasm for his ideas tended to exceed a deeper understanding of his quest for truth rooted in devotion to God. His attempts to get closer to this divine power led him to seek purity through simple living, dietary practices, celibacy and a life without violence. 

This is not a straightforward narrative biography. In The Story of My Experiments with Truth: An Autobiography, Gandhi offers his life story as a reference for those who would follow in his footsteps.

A well-known Indian actor, Sagar Arya has narrated over 35 audiobooks, including White Teeth by Zadie Smith, Love Like Blood by Mark Billingham and audiobooks by Amish, and he brings his wealth of knowledge to this production. His television credits include A Touch of Frost, Hunted, Spooks, Casualty and Holby City. He appeared as Claudio in RSC's Much Ado About Nothing as well as Twelfth Night (West End), The Great Game (Tricycle) and A Fine Balance (Hampstead).

What a performance!

Sagar Arya nailed his performance as Bapu. Excellent audio book. The book of course is legendary and a must read/listen for any Indian and a recommended reading for humanity in general. One might agree or disagree with Gandhi on individual issues but the overall force of his character cannot be denied.

Wow ! What a Great life filled with experiments !!!

Thank you DK Audio for bringing out this masterpiece in Audio book format. Beautifully narrated by Sagar Arya. Like the Gandhi movie, this one is also a must listen for every Indian.
It’s a shame that I am reading this book at age 45. But better late than never.
I strongly believe that listening to this book has brought in a profound impact on me.
How did Gandhi manage to live such an eventful life. Full of experiments, many of them so dangerous. Really wonder how he survived for 79 years even after being so tough on himself.
Kasturba Gandhi must have been a Great soul. Else it is not possible for a normal person to put up with all that Gandhi did.
Gandhi remembers the names of thousands of characters whom he has come across in his life and mentions them in the book. Looks like, he maintained a journal of his entire life in a disciplined way.
But this book doesn’t cover his journey with respect to his contribution in the final phase of India’s freedom struggle. I am very keen to read his version of the same.
This book has kindled my interest to read more about Gandhi and his works. And of course, he has a deep influence on the reader and this would for sure bring in many changes in my lifestyle.

Brilliant narration

Loved to listen to the story with a beautiful narration. Mahatma Gandhi is any day inspirational. Everyone knows that. But Sagar Arya's narration is worth the applaud here!

The Narration makes it Better

Lot to process. dellayed reading this for a long time. Happy that i finally read it.
Makes you realize that afterall, Gandhi too was an ordinary man who became The Gandhi by toiling throughout life.

the origin recording of Gandhi at the end made you it a good ending...

A must read for every individual

it beutifully described the make over of an ordinary man in to the Mahatma ...a real experiment with truth which we all face but probably our reaction to such truth like self control and self commitments makes what we are and what it makes Mahatma

Self introspection using truth as a tool

This audiobook perfectly describes the journey of Mahatma with his credulous attitude towards any rightful success which can be achieved by the only use of truth as a tool of self introspection.
