The Early YearsDownloadable Video - 2014
In the first of three programs examining the life and legacy of Mahatma Gandhi, journalist Mishal Husain journeys through Gandhi's early years in India to the end of his controversial career in South Africa. She explains the development of Gandhi's thinking. While she finds the roots of some of his ideas in boyhood, she shows that his ambitions and identity were tied to the existing system, and explains how contact with London's religious and social reformers led him to embrace an identity in line with Indian traditions. She shows how experience of racial discrimination in South Africa served as an epiphany, providing a concrete cause for his growing spiritual idealism and energy.
