(The father of Nation)
            Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on 2nd October, 1869, in Porbandar Gujarath, India. Mohandas was from the social cast of tradesmen. His mother’s religious devotion had a lasting impact on Gandhi’s character. As a youngster, Mohandas was a good student, but the shy young boy displayed no signs of leadership. Mohandas travelled to England to gain a degree in law. He became involved with the Vegetarian society. He was fascinated to Bhagavath Geetha.
                On completing his degree in Law, he returned to India, where he was soon sent to South Africa to practice law. In South Africa, Gandhi was struck by the level of racial discrimination and injustice often experienced by Indians. It was in South Africa that Gandhi first experimented with campaigns of civil disobedience and protest; he called his nonviolent protests – Satyagraha. After 21 years in South Africa, Gandhi returned to India in 1915. He became the leader of the Indian nationalist movement campaigning for home rule or Swaraj. In 1947 India got independence. He was the fore leader to make India free from Britain and known as ‘Father of India”. He was shot by Nathuram Godse in 1948.
