Gandhi lived one of the great 20th century lives. At this event, Ramachandra Guha tells the epic story of Gandhi's life from his departure from South Africa to his assassination in 1948. Guha allows us to see Gandhi as he was by his contemporaries and across India's diverse societies and understand how he changed the world, armed only with his arguments and example.
