M.K. Gandhi
1869–1948

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the Father of the Indian Nation, has a permanent place in world history as the man who evolved a new and invincible concept and technique — non-violence and Satyagraha. The Mahatma was the greatest mass leader that India, or probably the world has ever known. Indeed, he was the greatest man of his time. He transformed a suppressed and timid people into fearless fighters for freedom inviting suffering upon themselves. In the inimitable words of Tagore, "at Gandhi's call, India blossomed forth to new greatness, just as once before, in earlier times, when Buddha proclaimed the truth of fellow-feeling and compassion among all living creatures."

Mahatma Gandhi made his own salt from a sea in Gujarat. This was called Dandi March

Mahatma Gandhi was a great freedom fighter who fought for India's Independence.
sushil Isha Sirohi
People say so many things about his personality but we don't have any doubts about his loyalty for India. The developing platform which every country needs he gave it for India either it is Salt or independence war.

Gandhi favoured nondiscrimination based on religion or caste. He also valued women and children.
Aruj Shah
M.K. Gandhi the father of the nation, encouraged people to make their own clothes and he himself made his own clothes out of the material 'Khadi'. He was the person who reduced the price of salt because salt was the food that poor people ate.
Hud the Poet
Gandhi was a great man who would be saddened that the best thing people have to do with their lives is to leave pointless little messages on this website. He led the uprisings of Indians against the oppression of British Imperialism and all "Minal" can say is - "Mahatama Gandhi was a great freedom fighter who fought for India's Independence". And yes I am aware of the irony that I'm doing the same now but that's life...pointless and we all need some form of entertainment

Gandhi died in 1948
Shiv Lal
We called Gandhi jee "Bapu" because he fought for our freedom without any personal interest. When all Indians were celebrating 1st independence, he was fighting against communalism.
Jaci Gestero-DiMaggio
Gandhi said, "An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind."
karthik
He was an avatar of lord hanuman. Faithfully he chanted ramanama always
parveen
He dreamed of Sarvodaya & was against modern conception of "state". He considered it as yet another form of violence as state tends to regulate life of its members. He was in favour of a way of living where each one would regulate himself willingly according to set standard of ethics & norms. Alas! In this materialistic world it seems impossible.
Stella
Mahatma Ghandi was shot three times and died instantly.
DIVYESH MAHESHWARI
The metamorphosis of this great persona led to transformation of the complete scenario of indian independence movement.

The movie titled "Gandhi" which depicted Gandhiji's life and sacrifices, has won many OSCAR awards

Besides Manu and Abha, my father was the only other person who carried Mahatma Gandhi immediately after he was shot on Jan. 30, 1948. As written by my father, this is what happened that evening: WITH MAHATMA GANDHI ON JAN. 30, 1948 AT DELHI I very closely witnessed a major catastrophic event in world history when Mahatma Gandhi, the architect of India's non-violent resistance freedom movement was shot dead by one extremist named Nathuram Godse on January 30, 1948 at 6:00 pm at Birla Bhawan, New Delhi. On January 13, 1948 Gandhiji had started a fast to bring about communal harmony. Thereupon he received a pledge of peace from fighting communal groups and he broke his fast on sixth day. Unconcerned about his own safety, even after a bombing attempt on his life, Gandhiji had refused to allow police to search those who attended his daily prayer meetings. Gandhiji was staying at Birla Bhawan and he was being led by three Ashram girls on the day of his death to the prayer meeting. Three short steps led upto the prayer platform. Nathuram Godse was standing adjacent to me just on my left. When Gandhiji was stepping up on his last step, I saw that Nathuram Godse bowed down a little and saluted Gandhiji and immediately thereafter fired shots from his pistol. Shots pierced Gandhiji's heart and he began to bleed. Gandhiji on being shot, folded his hands and uttered the words, "Hey Ram, Hey Ram, Hey Ram" meaning "Oh God! Oh God! Oh God!" Gandhiji then was about to fall down but the three ashram girls (two of them were Abha and Manu) accompanying him held him up and I also ran upto Gandhiji to support him. Three girls and I took Gandhiji on our arms inside Birla Bhawan to his bed. We realized that Gandhiji was no more. When Abha, Manu and I were carrying Gandhiji to his bed inside Birla Bhawan, I saw that in the prayer ground, a lot of people were beating Nathuram Godse on his head and body and he was bleeding heavily. Police came to him and arrested him and took him to hospital. Abha, Manu and I laid Gandhiji to rest inside Birla Bhawan. I realized that Gandhiji was no more. The three Ashram girls went inside Birla Bhawan to bring some first aid stuff for Gandhiji's wounds. I was alone then with Gandhiji. I bowed down at his feet and uttered prayers. Shortly thereafter Sardar Patel, India's Home Minister entered Gandhiji's room and I came away. On hearing radio announcement, Pandit Nehru, India's Prime Minister and thousands of people came to Birla Bhawan. After a little while, Pandit Nehruji broadcast cremation plans for Gandhiji to take place on Jamuna river bank next day. Next day morning I was actually to go to Lucknow but I changed my plan and decided to attend the cremation ceremony. The cremation ceremony was attended by millions and millions of people from all over India and abroad. There were people all around on the ground, roof tops, on branches of trees all round. I have never seen such huge crowds ever before or thereafter. I never can imagine to see such heavy crowds in my whole life. Gandhiji's passing away and the manner thereof are a sort of watershed in world history. The event has had a deep imprint on my own life. When cremation work was in progress, everyone among the millions gathered there wanted to be as near the cremation central spot as possible. So every one was forcefully pushing more and more towards the cremation central spot. Great leader, Shri C. Rajagopalachari at that time had flown from Madras (Chennai) to Delhi to attend the cremation ceremony. The question was as to how could this old man pierce through this hoard of humanity to reach the central cremation spot. At that time I saw that the Viceroy Mountbatten personally was holding him from all sides with his outstretched hands so that Shri Rajagopalachari may not get crushed to death as wave after wave of humanity was pushing forward from all around to reach near the cremation central spot. It was such a rare panorama, which, with God’s grace, I had the rare privilege to see in my life. Dharam Jit Jigyasu

We are very proud that "Mahatma Gandhiji" was an Indian. India is very great country because they were people like Gandhiji in our country. He is the only person who got respect by the entire nation. That is why he was called the "father of nation". Every Indian must read about his life and follow his principles.

G.Sravan Kumar
Gandhiji’s life was dedicated to the ideals of Truth, Non-violence and Love. 'The Bhagavad-Gita is my mother,' he once said; and the name of Sri Rama was his shield. He was the architect of India's freedom and one of the greatest men of this century.

For a major part of his life, Gandhiji fought the evils of communal hatred and inculcated the spirit of unity among his countrymen.
kuran c ghosh
The life of Gandhiji shows how a bit of spirituality ennobles even political endeavors.It also proves what the Gita says on the subject:"Nehabhikramanashoasti pratyavayo na vidyate; swalpamapi asya dharmasys trayte mahto bhayat."
