Abstract

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in Porbandar, India, in 1869, eleven years after the establishment of the British Raj. A discrete and religious young man, Gandhi travelled to England in 1888 to study law. After being called to the bar, he returned to India, but almost immediately left for South Africa, where he worked for 20 years as a lawyer. In 1915, he returned to India; he adopted his ‘signature look’ of loincloth and shawl. Acting under his beliefs of satya (truth) and ahimsa (non-violence), he led three major campaigns against British Rule. Gandhi and his followers fought the Raj using ‘active, non-violent resistance’. In 1948, a year after India gained independence, Gandhi was assassinated. Here (above) he is as a studious young man.
