“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (Mahatma Gandhi) was born on 2nd October, 1869 and raised up in Gujarat. He is also known as the father of the Nation. His independence movement inspired civil rights movements across the globe. Firstly, he engaged non-violent public disobedience as a deportee lawyer in South Africa.
After returning back to India, he organized protest against excessive land-tax and discrimination. He excellently led the Quit India movement in 1942 and was caged on numerous times in his lifetime. Gandhi’s dream for free India was realised on 15th August, 1947, when British granted independence to India after partitioning India into two territories.
