Many associate Mahatma Gandhi with peace, but this should not be confused with passivity. Gandhi was an activist who helped India achieve independence from Britain, advocated for Indian rights in South Africa and at home, and improved the lives of India’s “untouchable” people. He did this all through nonviolent activism and thoughtful reflection on the nature of the injustices he saw around him. At his funeral, a million mourners followed the processional through the streets, yet millions more mourned worldwide.
This short biography reveals the life experiences that made Gandhi an inspirational peacemaker with an international legacy.
