Gandhi's Marriage

Kasturbai Mohandas Gandhi  
Gandhi was married at age 13 years old.  Reading this book I am realizing how little I know about this good man.  In Chapter 87 he says the following about his marriage.  "Let no one conclude from this narrative of a sacred recollection that we are by any means an ideal couple, or that there is a complete identity of ideals between us".  His reflection.  His honesty.  His sincerity.  I feel inspired to look within. "Numerous examples have convinced me that God ultimately saves him whose motive is pure"
Gandhi & Kasturbai
