Mahatma GandhiPrint Page
A monument commemorates Indian politician, Mahatma Gandhi, who was a major political and spiritual leader of India, and the Indian independence movement.
He was the pioneer and perfector of Satyagraha — the resistance of tyranny through mass civil disobedience strongly founded upon ahimsa (total non-violence), which led India to independence, and has inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.
Gandhi is commonly known and addressed in India and across the world as Mahatma Gandhi (from Sanskrit, Mahatma: Great Soul) and as Bapu (in many Indian languages, Father).
