Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, 1869-1948, generally called Mahatma Gandhi, “the Great Soul”, was an Indian political leader. With great idealism he worked intensely to improve conditions for Indian minorities. He campaigned for nonviolence in the struggle for their rights, and introduced the concept of civil disobedience. Because he fought for India’s independence from the British colonial powers, Ghandi is regarded as the actual founder of the Indian nation.From the book “We are all equal”, by Finn Nygaard.
