Gandhiji My Mentor

''Gandhiji My Mentor” is a fictional story of Chandrabhan Upadhyay. The story is set during British Empire in 1940s. The British Government was terrified at the name of that ravenous barbarian. Death prevailed wherever his evil shadow fell.
He was a successful businessman of foreign clothes but due to Gandhiji’s quit foreign goods movement (Swadeshi) he lost everything.
His wife Purnima was a ardent follower of Gandhiji. On August 8th 1942, when Gandhiji announced 'Do or Die' movement, eight months pregnant Purnima not only took part in do or die movement, but she also lead the march protesting at district magistrate office in Nadiad (Gujarat, India). Unfortunately, she was one of the protesters who died on that day in police firing. Chandrabhan became a ravenous barbarian and hated Gandhi for all his misfortunes. Haunted by British Government for the violent bomb blasts, Chandrabhan trespassed into Gandhiji’s Bungalow at Juhu (Mumbai, India), with only one intention of killing Gandhiji.  And then the drama unfolds, when Untruth challenges Truth, Non-Violence is pitted against Violence, Righteousness is attacked by Unrighteousness, Love is crushed into pieces by animosity. 

An amazing drama unfolds between the two before it's "dawn".
