The telegraph is out with a story that will be impossible to publish in India now. Was Gandhi really the saint as he is portrayed now ? They quote Nehru:
Mahatma Gandhi’s pronouncements on sex were “abnormal and unnatural” and “can only lead to frustration, inhibition, neurosis, and all manner of physical and nervous ills… I do not know why he is so obsessed by this problem of sex”. 
Add to that his suggestion to the woman of East Bengal to commit suicide to avoid being raped. (I wonder what will be say to the woman of New Delhi now). All the white-washing and the nursery rhymes portraying saint-like quality of the man can mask his eccentricities only so much, isn't it ?
