Gandi's 7 Dangers to Human Virtue

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi born October 1869 was the pre-eminent political and ideological leader of India during the Indian Independence movement. He pioneered the use of non-violent resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience, a tool to fight for civil rights and freedom for which he is internationally renowned. Gandi is most often referred to as "Mahatma" meaning great soul.

He was imprisoned for many years, upon many occasions,in both South Africa and India. Gandhi strove to practice non-violence and truth in all situations, and advocated that others do the same. He lived modestly in a self-sufficient residental community and wore the traditional Indian dhoti and shawl woven with yarn he had handspun himself. Ghandi ate simple vegetarian food and took long fasts as means of both self-purification and social protest.

Gandhi was assassinated on January 30, 1948 by Nathuram Godse, a Hindu nationalist who felt that Gandhi was sympathetic to Muslims.
