A Man Named Mohandas

We call him the Mahathma or ‘Great Soul’.

We call him the father of our nation and celebrate his birthday, October 2nd, as a national holiday.

We call him as ‘Bapu’ in affection.

He was a practitioner of ‘ahimsa’ or non-violent protest as he employed non-cooperation, non-violence and peaceful resistance as his “weapons” in the struggle against British rule.

He’s influenced millions and was Time magazine’s Man Of The Year in 1930 and runner-up to the Person Of The Century Award.

And he dedicated his life to making Indians free.
