Books on Mahatma Gandhi being sold for half price in Mumbai

An ongoing exhibition of books on Mahatma Gandhi has done business worth Rs 1.5 lakh within four days. Most volumes are being sold at half price.

TRK Somaiya of the Bombay Sarvodaya Mandal, which organises the biannual event, said, "We are receiving an overwhelming response to the exhibition-cum-sale at two venues, Hutatma Chowk, and the Gandhi Book Centre at Nana Chowk. Books worth Rs 1.5 lakh were sold within just four days.''

"The bestsellers remain Gandhiji's autobiography 'The Story of My Experiments with Truth' in English, Hindi, Marathi and Gujarati. The 450-page volume worth Rs 80 is selling for Rs 40. Another set of five books of about 2,500 pages titled 'Selected Works of Mahatma Gandhi' worth Rs 600 costs Rs 300. And 'Talks on the Gita' by Vinoba Bhave which is ordinarily priced Rs 100 is selling for Rs 50. These titles are on top of the popularity charts. We are happy to see that most of those who are frequenting the stall are youngsters.''
