[ In this paper, the author examines Gandhi's attitude to his mother, and the assumption of a maternal role towards his ailing father and later his grandneice, as these were important in shaping his attitude towards women and their roles. His early marriage, confessions of "carnal desires" towards his child bride and commitment to celibacy at the age of 37 were all vital influences in the evolution of an unconventional male persona. Some facets of this man and his unusual views will be analysed. ]
