Mahatma Gandhi was the great Indian figure who enlightened the world with the principles of truth and non-violence.
He belonged to an age when the principle of “Might is right” was the notion of the time. Countries were engaged fighting each other while displaying their powers.
After studying law, he went to South Africa to work for his clients. He raised his voice against the discrimination that was done again Indians and other dark people. However, he always adopted peaceful means.
After returning to India, he got the task of getting the country freed from the foreign rule.
Gandhi condemned the mass killing incident of Jalianwala Bath.
The people of the country, under the great leader, marched to Dandi and produced salt. They were protesting against the unfair British tax regime.
Gandhi was a supporter of indigenous cottage and khadi industry. The Swadeshi and Boycott movement inspired millions of Indians to come forward for the cause of the nation.
During the “Quit India movement” he asked Indians to “Do or die” for the freedom of the country.
He was a saint. He was praised even by the British community.
