"It is not my purpose to attempt a real autobiography. I simply want to tell the story of my experiments with truth, and as my life consist of nothing but experiments; it is true that the story will take the shape of an autobiography. But I shall not mind if every page of it speaks only of my experiments." The Story of My Experiments with Truth is the personal account of the life of the man who freed India from colonization through the Satyagraha—non-violent protest–movement. His early boyhood life, legal studies, purification, and ultimate salvation of his homeland are carefully recounted in this inspiring and critical work of insurmountable importance. It was written and published in his journal Navjivan from 1925 to 1929. This is the extended edition of Mahatma Gandhi's original and unabridged autobiography. The autobiography is noted for its lucid, simple and idiomatic language and its transparently honest narration. The autobiography itself has become a key document for interpreting Gandhi's life and ideas. The original Gujarati version was published as the Satya Na Prayogo (lit. Experiments with Truth), bearing the subtitle, Atmakatha (lit. The Story of a Soul). The English version, An Autobiography, bore the subtitle, Experiments with Truth.[ Gandhi’s autobiography is one of the best sellers and is translated in nearly all languages of the world. “Autobiography” in a way is a “confession of Gandhi’s faith, a very basic document for the study of his thought”.
