 Gandhi ji daye of birth

Mahatma gandhi was born in Porbandar in Gujarat to a senior government official. He married at 13, then went to England at 18 to study law. He travelled to South Africa to fight for the rights of Indians who were living there, then returned to India around the start of WWI. Considered the “Father of the Nation”, Gandhi became a leader of Indian nationalism during an era when India was still ruled by the British Empire.

While in India, Gandhi would inspire the people of India to rally together for independence by his use of non-violent civil disobedience. His techniques rapidly became an inspiration around the world for movements of a similar nature. He continued his determined strategy of freeing India peacefully from British rule as the leader of the Indian National Congress.

In 1946, he met with the Cabinet Mission, responsible for recommending a new constitutional structure, and negotiated with them. Independence soon followed and after, in 1947, Gandhi was in Delhi attempting to stop the Hindu-Muslim conflict in Bengal when he was assassinated.
