The small diary, written in Gujarati during India's independence time, was handed over to the Archives by Varsha Das, former director of the Gandhi National Museum.
"The diary is a national as well as an international treasure. By keeping it in the Archives one will get to know a little more about Mahatma Gandhi's life and work than what we know at present," said Das.
She also added,"a lot will be revealed through these diaries."
"People who know Gujarati can access the diary even now," informed the museum official.
He also added, "In order to facilitate greater dissemination we plan to translate it into Hindi and English too."
Besides, the personal diary, an album of Mahatma Gandhi capturing his 1925 Madras tour, highlights of his visits along with other items like telegrams and a photocopy of a few Gujarati couplets would also be showcased at the National Archives.
