Abstract

The ideas, anti-colonial movements and personality of Mahatma Gandhi had had a profound influence on different walks of life in India in the 20th century. Culture and literature of the various Indian languages also came under his spell. Probably the greatest impact of Gandhian ideas was felt in the literature of his native Gujarati language, so much so that the period of three decades beginning 1915 is designated as the Gandhian era (Gandhi Yug) by historiographers of Gujarati literature. This article analyzes in what ways Gandhi’s ideas and India’s freedom struggle transformed the orientation of Gujarati literature from elites to the common masses. It also brings out the key characteristics of Gandhi’s own writings in Gujarati and his contribution to the standardization of Gujarati dictionary.

Key Words
