eLearning CE: Activity 3-Terisha-Ann Tan (6)

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, or Mahatma Gandhi is known as the father of India. He led India to freedom is the 1930s. He believed in non-violence and still got people to do what he said. He spent severa years in jail and yet he never gave up. His main goal was to free India from British colonization. Gandhi was assassinated on 30 January 1948 by Nathuram Godse, a Hindu nationalist. He ate simple vegetarian food, experimented for a time with a fruitarian diet, and undertook long fasts as a means of both self-purification and social protest. One of the things he did is the Salt March to Dandi from 12 March to 6 April, where he marched 388 kilometres (241 miles) from Ahmedabad to Dandi, Gujarat to make salt himself. Thousands of Indians joined him on this march to the sea.

Gandhi is
  • Humble-He went on diets and protested along with his people
  • Peaceful-He encouraged non-violence and decided to protest with peace instead
  • Spiritually Strong-He was very prayerful
  • Determined-He never gave up despite his people being imprisoned and the wars
  • Wise-He knows what is right and is full of sayings
