Mahatma Gandhi

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was an Indian lawyer who led India’s independence battle against the British rule. He formed a non-violent civil disobedience by boycotting British institutions and used his brilliant mind to influence his people and the world. Gandhi also advocated for the civil rights of Indians in South Africa. Gandhi’s love for freedom and equality stirred him to form the Natal Indian Congress in 1894 to fight discrimination. His teachings and peaceful way of revolution inspired the next generation of leaders like Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela. The world remembers him with his famous quote, “An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind.”
