Our World Tuesday- Gandhi
Today is Mahatma Gandhi's 144th birthday. This post is dedicated to him.. M.K.Gandhi is called the 'Father of the Nation' in India. The great man propounded simplicity and non-violence.
Mahatma Gandhi resisted the colonial rule of the British by non- violent civil disobedience. The famous Dandi March in 1930 spearheaded by him , was a non violent protest against the salt tax imposed by the British who ruled India at that time.
The simple ashram at Sabarmati was the home of Mahatma Gandhi.
