In 1914, Mahatma Gandhi returned to India and immediately put himself in the forefront of freedom struggle movement that had just begun. Gandhi Jayanti has been declared as International Day of Non-Violence by the United Nations General Assembly on 15 th of June 2007. He worked as an editor for several English, Hindi and Gujarati newspapers in India as well as South Africa, including the Harijan, Indian Opinion South Africa and the Young India. While many Indians felt that Gandhi had not been granted enough during these negotiations, Gandhi himself viewed it as a sure step on the road to independence. Teachers, soldiers and people from civil services left their jobs supporting the national movement. He had a set of false teeth, which he carried in a fold of his loin cloth.
He lived a simple life. Hope the day is not very far when there will be no violence and every conflict and dispute will be solved through peaceful dialogues without harming anyone and shedding blood and this would be a greatest tribute to Mahatma Gandhi. The answer was the salt tax. India was granted independence in 1947, and partitioned into India and Pakistan. On January 13, 1948, at the age of 78, he began a fast with the purpose of stopping the bloodshed.
Concerned and dismayed at such adulation, Gandhi retired from politics in 1934 at age 64. He was highly influenced by the life of the King Harischandra from the play titled as Raja Harischandra. Although he had many powers, he lived very simply. He fought peacefully for many causes and succeeded in persuading the government to abolish many abuses against labourers in Bihar, the Kaira peasants in Gujarat, etc. He went to the jail many times however continued his non-violence movement till the freedom of country. Bapu has been set before us and all the future generations as an example of simple living and high thinking.
After he became a , he went to the British colony of where he experienced laws that said people with dark had fewer rights than people with light skin. But this man could not live with us for long. Mahatma Gandhi was born on Oct. The march was started with few members, the number of followers increased as it gained momentum. He brought common people in front to participate in the national movement and inspired them to fight for their true freedom. While in England in 1931, Gandhi made his first radio broadcast for the United States. All such social and political events concreted the launch of civil disobedience movement.
Having spent twenty years in South Africa helping fight discrimination, Gandhi decided it was time to head back to India in July 1914. The draft resolution of the Working Committee is based on Ahimsa, the contemplated struggle similarly has its roots in Ahimsa. Gandhi's struggles and triumphs in South Africa had been reported in the worldwide press, so by the time he reached home he was a national hero. This lead to the mass civil disobedience and people started making salt on a large scale challenging the law imposed by the British government. He was born on 2nd October, 1869, at Porbander. Thus the true servant of humanity left his footprints on the sands of time. Technically, he had broken the law.
In the morning, Gandhi made a presentation of picking up a piece of sea salt that lay on the beach. His full name is Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. The original photo is displayed here. He was born on 2 nd of October in 1869 at Porbandar in Gujarat, India. But under the Congress scheme of things, essentially non-violent as it is, there can be no room for dictatorship. We also call him Bapu. The Natal India congress founded by Gandhi in 1894, on lines similar to the Indian National Congress, and later the British Indian committee in the Transvaal fought against restriction on Indian trade, movement and residence.
Gandhi Jayanti is celebrated every year on 2nd of October as a national event all over the India. A crowd had surrounded him as he walked, being supported by two of his grandnieces. He was a patriotic leader and led the country all through the Indian independence movement by following the way of non-violence. His non-violence movement for independence of India is still continues influencing political leaders and youths of our own country as well as other countries worldwide. He was the great personality who served his whole life till death for the motherland. This did not mean that Gandhi sat idle.
He soon earned the title of 'Mahatma' maha means great and atma means soul among Indians all over the world. The main aim of the march was to protest against the British taxation system and breaking the law which was against the local production of salt. Gandhi stayed in South Africa for 21 years working to secure rights for Indian people. He truly understood the power of unity in people from different castes, religions, community, race, age or gender which he used all through his independence movement. After his arrival to India, he started helping Indian people facing various problems from the British rule.
Gandhiji did not live long to enjoy the freedom of a free nation. He was the architect of India's freedom and one of the greatest men of this century. He pleaded fervently with the British leaders to give his country freedom, to avoid parting of ways. When Gandhi was released from prison in 1944, Indian independence seemed in sight. He launched his Satyagrah Movement against the British.
Satyagraha promoted non-violence and civil disobedience as the most appropriate methods for obtaining political and social goals. Drawn into the political struggle, largely under Gandhi's influence, Motilal and Jawaharlal occupied the centre of the stage. When Gandhi announced that he planned a march on the government-owned Dharasana Saltworks, the British arrested Gandhi and imprisoned him without trial. He is called as the Bapu or Rashtrapita as he spent his life in fighting against British rule for the freedom of us. Since 1947, the 15 th of August is celebrated every year as the Independence Day in India.
