He was born on the 2nd of October 1869. Also known as “Bapu”-the father of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi played a major role in the Independence of India. He was married at the age of 13 and had four children. He later went to England to study law and started working at a law firm. After the completion of his education, he travelled to South Africa to help the people and stay there for twenty years after which he returned to India in 1914.
The time he returned to India, the country was completely oppressed by the British Empire. From that time his fight for justice began. As he was against violence, we strongly believed in the power of speech and due to the constant efforts of him and several other leaders, India got Independence. Although there are several heroes in the world, the things Gandhiji did for our nation is something we can talk endlessly.
To give him a tribute, we celebrate a national holiday on his birthday every year and the day keep as much importance as Republic Day and Independence Day. On the day of his birthday, there are many theatres which conduct skits on the life of Gandhiji.
Mahatma Gandhi’s complete life was spent solving the social causes and getting the rights to the minorities. Even today after so many years from his death, whenever we discuss the struggle of Independence, the first name that comes to our mind is of Gandhiji. That is why his photo is present in every single Indian currency.
