Mahatma Gandhi, born in 1869, was a lawyer and political activist who became involved in India’s independence movement.

He believed in nonviolent resistance and used it to protest against British rule. Through his efforts, Gandhi inspired millions of Indians to fight for their rights and freedoms peacefully.

One of Gandhi’s most famous campaigns was the Salt March in 1930.

In protest of the salt tax imposed by the British government, Gandhi led a march of over 24,000 people from Ahmedabad to the Arabian Sea, where they collected salt illegally.

This nonviolent civil disobedience inspired similar protests across India and strengthened the independence movement.

Gandhi’s impact extended beyond India’s borders. He inspired civil rights and freedom movements worldwide, including the American Civil Rights Movement, led by Martin Luther King Jr.

King described Gandhi as his mentor and greatly admired his philosophy of nonviolence.

However, Gandhi’s legacy is not without controversy. Despite his advocacy for peace and nonviolence, he faced criticism for his views on caste and religion.

Nevertheless, his influence on modern India cannot be overstated. He is widely regarded as the father of the nation, and his birthday, October 2nd, is celebrated as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday in India.

Gandhi’s teachings and principles are still relevant today. His message of nonviolence and truth inspires individuals and organisations to strive for justice and equality.

His legacy is a reminder that anyone can peacefully achieve change through determination and courage.

Mahatma Gandhi’s legacy continues to influence people worldwide 75 years after his death. His philosophy of nonviolence and truth remains as relevant today as it was during his lifetime.

He will always be remembered as a symbol of hope and a champion of justice, and his teachings will continue to inspire future generations.
