"Arun Gandhi was just twelve years old when his parents dropped him off at Sevagram, Mahatma Gandhi's famous ashram. To Arun, the man who fought for India's independence and was the country's beloved preeminent philosopher and leader was simply a family member. Arun came to the ashram an angry young boy having difficulty expressing his emotions. During the two years he lived under his grandfather's wing, he learned to harness his anger and see it as a gift to motivate him and help him bring about good in the universe. Each chapter of The Gift of Anger contains a singular, timeless lesson for today's turbulent age--lessons that remain as vital as they were to Arun at the ashram. These lessons strike a universal chord about self-discovery, identity, anger, depression, loneliness, friendship, and family--perfect for anyone searching for a way to effect healing change in a fractured world. In addition to these extraordinary gems of wisdom, Arun shares a deeply moving portrait of the leader who changed the world for the better; a rare, three-dimensional portrait of the man behind the legendary figure."--Jacket.
The grandson of Mahatma Gandhi shares ten vital and extraordinary life lessons imparted by the iconic philosopher and peace advocate, sharing Gandhi's particular insights into how emotions like anger can be guiltless motivational tools if properly used for good purposes.
