Mahatma gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi, by name of Mohandas Karam Chand Gandhi (born October 2,1869,porbandar, India-died January 30,1948 Delhi) Indian lawyer politician, social activist. And writer who became the  leader of the nationalist movement against the British rule of India. As such he came to be considered the father of his country. Gandhi is internationally esteemed for his doctrine of  nonviolent protest (satyagraha)  to achieve political and social progress. In the eyes of millions of his fellow Indians, Gandhi was the Mahatma ( "Great Soul")  The unthinking adoration of the huge crowds  that gathered to see him all along the route of his  tours made them a severe ordeal ; he could hardly work during  the day  or rest at night.  " The woes of the Mahatmas",  he wrote "are known only  to the Mahatmas" His  fame  spread  worldwide during his lifetime and only increased after his death.  The name Mahatma Gandhi is now one of the most  universally recognized on earth.  Gandhi was  the youngest child of his father 's  fourth wife.  His father- karamchand Gandhi,  who was the dewan (chief Ministers)  of porbandar , the capital of small principality in Western India (in what is now Gujarat state ) under British suzerainty- did not have much in the way of a formal education. He was, however, an  able administrator who knew how to steer his way between the capricious princes, their long - suffering subjects, and the headstrong British political officers in power.  Gandhi 's mother ,putlibai, was completely absorbed in religion did not care much for finery or jewelry divided her time  between her home and the temple,  fasted frequently  and wore  herself out in day and nights of nursing  whenever there  was sickness in the family.
