Mahatma Gandhi



Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869–1948) was an Indian lawyer, political ethicist, and anti-colonial nationalist whose campaigns of civil disobedience helped lead to India’s independence from British rule. His espousal of nonviolent resistance inspired civil rights movements across the world, earning him the honorific of “Mahātmā,” or “great-souled.”
