Gandhi era gay?
Forse. Ma Andrew Roberts, recensendo la nuova biografia su Gandhi di Joseph Lelyvedl, Great Soul: Mahatma Gandhi And His Struggle With India (Knopf), dice, "Yet Great Soul also obligingly gives readers more than enough information to discern that he was a sexual weirdo, a political incompetent and a fanatical faddist - one who was often downright cruel to those around him. Gandhi was therefore the archetypal 20th-century progressive intellectual, professing his love for mankind as a concept while actually despising people as individuals.wsj.
