‘Get down!’ the official said. ‘Or I will get a constable to push you out!’‘Do that,’ I told him. ‘I will not get off this train!’ We know Mahatma Gandhi as the father of the nation, as the benign looking old man whose picture graces ourcurrency notes. But who was Mohandas KaramchandGandhi and what made him the phenomenon he was? Born into a middle class Gujarati family, Gandhi gaveevidence of his thirst for the truth at an early age. Tirelessly striving for the truth, Gandhi was usuallyharder on himself than on anyone else.

Mrs Dalloway (published on 14 May 1925) is a novel by Virginia Woolf that details a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway, a fictional high-society woman in post – First World War England. It is one of Woolf’s best-known novels.
Created from two short stories, “Mrs Dalloway in Bond Street” and the unfinished “The Prime Minister,” the novel addresses Clarissa’s preparations for a party she will host that evening. With an interior perspective, the story travels forward and back in time and in and out of the characters’ minds to construct an image of Clarissa’s life and of the inter-war social structure. In October 2005, Mrs Dalloway was included on Time‘s list of the 100 best English-language novels written since 1923.
In the modern Russian literature, especially in the children’s literature, few books become a sensation. Not every year it is possible to find a book, which is read and discussed almost by everyone. Olga Gromova’s Sugar Child, first published in 2014, has been reissued several times, and its 2017 reissue differs from the others: it’s a “grown-up” version, it has new cover. The author of the new cover is Ksenia Dereka. Her illustration won the reader’s competition held by KompasGuide and Illustrators.ru site in social networks in June 2017. Sugar Child tells the story of a 5-year-old girl Elya, who was sent with her mother to a camp in Kirgizia as family members of an “enemy of the people”. Settling into a new place is hard, looking back on happy days in Moscow is painful and getting to know strange people is scary. However, this novel, despite its difficult subject, is its own way bright and optimistic: new place will be settled into, a grown-up Elya will see Moscow again and good people can be found anywhere.
