BIO- I was born and given the name Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and i was born on October 2nd 1869 in Porabander India. I was the youngest born out of four children, I had two brothers and one sister. As a kid my parent could afford me a good education. I was not very intrested in school and was not very involved in sports. I was very interested in the Hindu holy readings as well as book by Bhagavad-Gita, John Ruskin, Leo Tolstoy, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Henry David Thoreau which influenced me. At age 13 I was married to my wife Kasturbai. I continued with my education into a the university of Bombay where I studied for a little bit then went to England in 1888, to study to become a lawyer. When I left India I had to be expelled from my caste so now I was an out caste. I then finished my studies in 1891 and returned home to find out that my mother had died and that the legal positions was overcrowded and it was hard to find a job.I soon signed for a job and I went to Africa in 1893 and my job was with an Indian firm and was successful with some of my ideas like satyagraha which was non violent resistance. I returned to India to gather my wife and kids and returned to africa in 1896. I had more success in Africa when I organized an ambulance crops for the british. A fews years later I returned to India and became involved with the INC and became a leader of national struggle for independence in India from Britain. At this time from 1901-1906 I became very naturalistic and pacifistic and took a more simple way of life. I only wore pieces of white cloth as my clothing, I was a vegetarian, fasted and prayed and I made my own clothes and I achieved celibacy. I was the starter of the movement civil disobedience and for that I was arrested many times in 1908. For the next years I kept following satyagraha and breaking british law and was arrested in 1922 for sedition and remained imprisoned until 1924. Soon after my release in 1925 I am elected president of the INC. After this there are a couple of main moments in my life. In 1931 I led the famous salt march and was arrested yet again. In was later arrested again for protesting unequal rights of untouchables. He named themHarijans, the children of God. What all my efforts led to in India was the independence of the country and better standards of living for all. My only failure was the separation of the Hindus ad the muslims because I believed a united India was stronger and that religious tolerance was achievable.
