Overview

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in 1869 in British-occupied India. Though he studied law in London and spent his early adulthood in South Africa, he remained devoted to his homeland and spent the later part of his life working to make India an independent nation. Calling for non-violent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights around the world. Gandhi is recognized internationally as a symbol of hope, peace, and freedom.

gandhiji was great as ole Experiments in sex! thats what i heard and known about gandhiji. Gadnhiji is a bad leader in all respects. politically eveything about his ideal was a flaw. morally bankrupt. he was pedophile,bisxuaul; and even dogs. no wonder india they say has gone to the dgs. even dogs and cows are allowed to roam free on mainstreet. there is no morals in india all leaders are corrupt. judges are immoral. those who have their back pockets have their judgement day done well. so to speak shameless fellas. india is a fcked up place. my personal experience dealing with India. immoral leaders and ungrateful and lazy bstards liars. maybe if this one of being intellectually braod minded yes. go for it. tolerant? oh yeah! anything goes? my way your way anything goes? toxic assets. india shting bricks.\ just decode this: Gandhiji was shot by nath-u 'ram' dogs e?

Who Was Gandhi? by Dana Meachen Rau added so many new details to my knowledge of Gandhi's life. Great book filled with social, personal, and historical information. It weaves it together making this a story without the reader knowing it is really a history lesson. Wonderful book, one of my favorites!
