Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on 2 October in Porbandar, Gujarat. Gandhi attended the Inner Temple in London to study law. Shortly after Bapu completed his graduation from London, he moved to South Africa to practice law. After witnessing the unhappy treatment Indian farmers were receiving in South Africa, Gandhi launched a non-violent civil disobedience movement against African officials.

In 1915, Gandhi returned to India and noted that the British government had imposed excessive taxes on Indian workers and started protesting against them. In 1921, Mohandas became the leader of the Indian National Congress and led several campaigns to gain "Swaraj" (self-government) from there.

Gandhi lived his life with the acceptance and practice of truth, non-violence, vegetarianism, simplicity and belief in God and was an important political and spiritual leader within India. He was a pioneer of Satyagraha, who believed in resistance to tyranny largely through civil disobedience, firmly founded on total non-violence.
