Ghandi

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on October. 2, 1869. He was born in Porbandar in the present state of Gujarat. Mohandas Gandhi was one of the greatest nationalist leader of the 20th century. In fact, he was so great, Indians thought he was a Saint.

Gandhi became the international symbol of a free India. He lived a spiritual and holy life of prayer, fasting, and meditation.

Gandhi was modern India's spiritual and political leader. A shy gentle frail man Gandhi tried to teach his people to avoid violence and to struggle for independence by peaceful means.

Gandhi

I have nothing new to teach the world,
Truth and non-violence are as old as the hills.

Gandhi - man of peace
During World War one, he helped the British. Then after the war ended in 1918, he began a movement of non-violent resistance, to British rule to win self rule for India.

Gandhi was a leader because he helped India through all of their problems. He gave India their right to be free. One of the reasons he was great because he solved problems in a peaceful way.

Returning to India in January 1915, Gandhi soon became involved in labour organizing. The massacre of Amritsar, 1919, in which troops fired on a killed hundreds of nationalists demonstrators, turned him to the direct political protest.

Gandhi
On January 30 1948, as he walked to his evening prayers Gandhi was shot and killed by a Hindu fanatic opposed to portion. Gandhi died with freedom, peace and love within his heart.
