Then, the 2nd edition of the book appeared in 1940, and Mahadev Desai has observed that the English translation had the benefit of Gandhiji’s revision.

 English Drama - :  Mahadevbhai (1892-1942) : www.MumbaiTheatreGuide.com
In an age of increasing communalism and casteism, when violence is becoming a norm rather than an aberration, MAHADEVBHAI (1892-1942) is a reminder of a healthy tradition that is slowly being obliterated by the devices of deep hatred and prejudice.
The play is based on the daily diary that Mahadev Desai, secretary and onlooker to Gandhiji, maintained during the period 1917 to 1942, in which he jotted down the innumerable letters to and by Gandhiji, as well as conversations and bantering, lectures and discourses.
All of this made Mahadevbhai a key witness to Gandhiji, besides proving Mahadevbhai's own commitment to Satyagraha and the struggle for independence.
