Do you think Gandhi is responsible for the tragic end of his eldest son, Hariral
I had watch the movie which is "Gandhi My Father" by Feroz Abbas Khan and the movie is quite interesting. It show about sacrificed Gandhi toward his country and at the same time abandon his own son, Hariral.
I think Gandhi is not responsible for his son dead, which is Hariral. Its because Hariral need to responsible to what he did until he's died. Many people say that Gandhi need to responsible toward his son in order to teach his son and he had doing his job greatly. The problem is came from his son because Hariral dont want to hear what is Gandhi said until he become in many social problem. Gandhi always patience with his son behavior and he never scolded Hariral.
Gandhi is full responsible toward Hariral after his wife dead. He taking care of his son carefully and try to make Hariral to become like him, which is fight for India. But, all the effort is wasted because Hariral dont want to follow his father step and rather to be himself. He don't want to follow his father because all of the effort seem like nothing. So Hariral make his own destiny by doing many social problem until he had been prison for his criminal cases. For me, Gandhi is not responsible toward the illegal behavior that his son do until causes the tragic end of his eldest son.
