But he himself has bluntly written about his conduct, his life, his opinion in his book which makes it more interesting read.
After every few chapter Gandhiji brings back the subject of vegetarian diet, Hinduism and other religion, and sanitation. I m moved by his concept of Fasting for self purification.

Few Beautiful lines..
Haath chhute bhi to, rishtey nahi chhuta karte
waqt ki shaakh se, lamhe nahin toda karte

Aaj hum bichhade hain toh, kitne rangeele ho gaye
Meri aankhein surkh, tere haath peele ho gaye
Kab ki paththar ho chuki thee muntazir aankhe magar
Chhoo ke jab dekha toh mere haath geele ho gaye
