Informacje o autorze
Mahatma Gandhi

Born and raised in a Hindu merchant caste family in coastal Gujarat, western India, and trained in law at the Inner Temple, London, Gandhi first employed nonviolent civil disobedience as an expatriate lawyer in South Africa, in the resident Indian community's struggle for civil rights. After his return to India in 1915, he set about organising peasants, farmers, and urban labourers to protest against excessive land-tax and discrimination. Assuming leadership of the Indian National Congress in 1921, Gandhi led nationwide campaigns for easing poverty, expanding women's rights, building religious and ethnic amity, ending untouchability, but above all for achieving Swaraj or self-rule. Gandhi famously led Indians in challenging the British-imposed salt tax with the 400 km (250 mi) Dandi Salt March in 1930, and later in calling for the British to Quit India in 1942. He was imprisoned for many years, upon many occasions, in both South Africa and India. Gandhi attempted to practise nonviolence and truth in all situations, and advocated that others do the same.

Mahatma Gandhi


There is more to life than increasing its speed.

जीवन की गति बढाने की अपेक्षा भी जीवन में बहुत कुछ है।


You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.


आपको इंसानियत पर कभी भी भरोसा नहीं तोडना चाहिए क्योंकि इस दुनिया में इंसानियत एक ऐसा समुद्र है जहाँ अगर कुछ बूँदें गंदी हो भी जाएँ तो भी समुद्र गंदा।
