Gandhiji’s father, Mr. Karamchandra Gandhi Kathiawar was a small heritage of Porbandar’s Diwan (Prime Minister).

His mother, Puthli Bai, was the fourth wife of his father. Gandhiji had a lot of affection for parents since the beginning.


Mahatma Gandhi’s primary education came from Kathiawar. After that, he passed the High School examination from Rajkot.

Gandhiji was a bit reluctant, obedient, and always respected elders – since he was a respected person.

After matriculation, he completed his studies from Shamaldas College.

According to Mahatma Gandhi’s autobiography, he was average in studies. At the age of 14 years of childhood, Mahatma Gandhi’s marriage took place with Kasturba 
Makhanji Kapadia.

Gandhi ji reduced his wife’s name to Kasturba and used to call her with love.

Mohandas and Kasturba Gandhi were the first children at the age of 15, but they survived for a few days and this year their father Karamchand Gandhi also passed away. After that Mohandas and Kasturba had four children.

  1. Harilal Gandhi 1888
  2. Manilal Gandhi 1892
  3. Ram Das Gandhi 1897
  4. Devdas Gandhi was born in 1900.

At the age of 19, Gandhi went to London to study law. After receiving a Barrister’s degree from London, Gandhiji came back to India and started practicing advocacy, but he did not get much success in this work.


Only then a South Africa-based company offered him the post of legal adviser, accepting the proposal, Gandhi jumped to Africa.

By staying in Africa, Gandhi fought a lot of legal battle for the people there. While living in South Africa, Mahatma Gandhi had to face problems like dying, once he was thrown down and unarmed when he was sitting in the special compartment of the train.

This kind of color distinction and injustice shocked Mahatma Gandhi and he resolved to raise voice against this injustice.

After that, Gandhi opposed the color discrimination there, due to which he had to face bigger problems. But they are not scared of all this, but to become respected to the Hindus living in Africa, they become increasingly active.

There was a “Disobedience Movement” against injustice against the people, which was very successful in its motive.


In 1915, Gandhi returned to India leaving South Africa. At that time, the whole of India was flush with the tyranny of British India.

With the tyranny and exploitation of British rule, the Indian public was suffering from poverty and hunger.

The cooperatives were being punished by poor people by the co-operation of the British and they were suppressed with cruelty to raise their voices. In such a way, Gandhi ji entered the freedom struggle to compete with the British.


Paran and Kheda satyagraha movement were patronizing the oppressed poor farmers by getting the protection of the British rule in Champaran and Kheda.

Gandhiji did Satyagraha against the exploitation of farmers, due to that satyagraha, arresting Gandhi, he was ordered to leave. But later on, millions of people had to leave the road without having to leave the British government.

After the successful Satyagraha of Champaran and Kheda, in which Gandhi ji liberated the poor farmers from the crime of the collectors, due to which Mahatma Gandhi’s level became very high. And their selfless service towards the common people became a separate image between the people 

Gandhiji chose the medium of non-violence, non-violence, and nonviolence to fight against the British. Although initially many people did not agree with Gandhiji’s non-violence views. Because people thought that dealing with non-violence against the brutal policies of the British Government would not be effective.

But later people agreed not only with their thoughts, but more and more people came forward in their support. After coming into Mahatma Gandhi’s freedom struggle, a wave of hope ran across India. Because no one was able to support people in such a huge amount so far.


Salt Satyagraha was one of the important movements undertaken by Gandhiji. At that time, the British government did not even authorize the countrymen to make salt used every day and our countrymen had to pay a lot more money for the salt coming from England, its actual value.

On 12th March 1930, Gandhiji went to Sabarmati Ashram after breaking the law by making salt after reaching Dandi after a 24-day journey to protest against this act of British government.

What happened after this shook the foundation of the British government, after the arrest of Gandhi, people took the initiative to make salt in the whole country and because of this many people were arrested.

People from all over the country came together to join the British government’s rocks, which caused the British government to sleep in the night.

Because of the leadership of Gandhiji leading the way, the wave in the country was running against it.


At the time of World War II, Gandhi was in favor of giving non-communal moral support to the forerunners. But due to opposition from Congress leaders, Gandhiji later announced that India will not support any party in this war.

As the Second World War grew, Gandhi ji swung his movement for independence called “Quit India”  .

Quit India Movement gradually became the biggest movement of struggle with the Indian freedom struggle. In this movement, thousands of freedom fighters were killed and a large number of people were injured, and thousands of freedom fighters were arrested and the English government arrested Gandhiji too.

This time of imprisonment for Gandhiji was very difficult. At the time of his imprisonment, where his wife Kasturba Gandhi died, the second and his personal secretary Mahadev Desai died of heart attack.

But in the end, the victory took place with the people of Mahatma Gandhi and finally the British had to go to India, and then our country – became the independent country of India. From that day onwards, we celebrate August 15 as Independence Day every year.

For this reason, Nathu Ram Godse was sentenced to death. Gandhi Ji was killed in three bullets, the last word “O Ram” was from his mouth.

After his death, his Samadhi site was built at Rajghat of New Delhi. The entire nation mourns the death of Mahatma Gandhi, the hero of India’s independence.

He was such a great leader who expelled the British government without any weapon. He devoted his whole life to the welfare of the country.
