Bapu's first Swaraj text now in French too
One of the most important scholarly works by Mahatma Gandhi, the Hind Swaraj or 'Indian Home Rule', first published in 1910 has now been translated into French language. This feat has been achieved by a team of scholars from The Nantes Institute for Advanced Study in France. It is in the Hind Swaraj that Bapu first expressed his views on Swaraj, modern civilization and mechanization.
The translated work called 'Hind Swaraj: L'emancipation a I'indienne' carries a preface by renowned a linguist and anthropologist Charles Malamoud, who is a specialist of religions in India. The French version of Hind Swaraj relies on the Gujarati version that Bapu originally wrote as well as 'Hind Swaraj- A critical edition' by Suresh Sharma and Tridip Suhrud. The translation work was led by Annie Montaut in the institute.
