The life and management of Mahatma Gandhi

Gandhi, who helped lead India to independence, has been the inspiration for non-violent actions for civil rights and social change the world over. Throughout his life, Gandhi remained dedicated to his perception in non-violence even beneath oppressive circumstances and within the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges.

The principle behind his actions, which included encouraging huge civil disobedience to British regulation as with the historic Salt March of 1930, was that “just means lead to just ends”; that’s, it’s irrational to attempt to use violence to realize a peaceable society. He believed that Indians should not use violence or hatred of their struggle for freedom from colonialism.
