Joseph Lelyveld wrote a book on Gandhi, Great Soul, which relates that Gandhi had a Jewish gay 'lover'.

Letters between Mahatma Gandhi and the Zionist Hermann Kallenbach are said to shed light on their 'loving relationship'
The letters were bought by the Indian government in July 2012.
Kallenbach, a German-born Jewish architect, met Gandhi in South Africa in 1904.
Gandhi and Kallenbach became constant companions.
Gandhi and Kallenbach lived together for two years in a house in South Africa.
They promised to give one another "more love, and yet more love... such love as they hope the world has not yet seen".

According to Lelyveld's book, Gandhi reportedly told Kallenbach: "How completely you have taken possession of my body. This is slavery with a vengeance."
Gandhi split with his wife so he could be with Kallenbach, according to Lelyveld.
Gandhi wrote that vaseline was a 'constant reminder' of Kallenbach.
