Janhavi who is ready to release Tales of  Young Gandhi a graphic novel says, “Somehow we have made Gandhi a larger than life figure to be remembered only on October 2 and January 30

Janhavi Prasada’s Tales of Young Gandhi draws on his autobiography, The Story of My Experiments with Truth, to remind us that he was an ordinary man who in his younger days smoked, drank, stole money, was shy, visited a brothel and was driven mad by lust. But he experimented with his experiences to become the person he did.

Tales of Young Gandhi reminds us that we all have Gandhi within us and like him we can use our experiences to become better versions of ourselves.
