Mahatma Gandhi is most known for his role in the liberation of India from British rule. Gandhi was an educated man who studied law in England and practiced it in South Africa. But ultimately he felt the urgency to return to India and join the movement to drive the British colonists out of India. Gandhi advocated peaceful non-resistance. His movement was ultimately successful because the Indians united in their struggle. Millions of people in India and around the world are captivated by his life and his achievements. Gandhi inspired so many because he practiced what he preached; he lived the change he wanted to see in the world and his message was none other than his life itself. He was an honest seeker of truth, a fearless defender of the weak, and an uncompromising practitioner of nonviolence. He was born Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi in the town of Porbandar, Gujarat, in Western India. His father, a devout Hindu, was prime minister of his native state.
