“Freedom South Africa. In 1904,After he had finished

“Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes” this is what Mahatma Gandhi said when protesting for India to be free from the British. But, let’s start from the beginning. It all started on October 2, 1869, Mahatma Gandhi was born in Porbandar, India. But, when he was 7 years old he moved to Rajkot and lived the rest of his childhood there. Gandhi had three sisters and two brothers. Unfortunately, Mahatma was the youngest child in the family. While he was growing up he worshipped the hindu god, Vishnu. He had started school just as he moved to Rajkot, which was when he was 7 years old. Once, he finished his elementary and high school years with a few of his friends, Gandhi left to study law in University. He had studied in a university in Africa. To be more specific, he studied in the University of South Africa. In 1904,After he had finished his years in university, he tried to find a way to get back to India, but he couldn’t find a way back for a few days. Therefore, he waited at his university dorm for those few days before he could go back.In 1906,a few years after Gandhi finished his university years and came back to India, Gandhi organised his first disobedience campaign which he called” Satyagraha”. Which was a nonviolent act of disobedience as a protest because he wanted freedom and independence of India. After a few more of these Satyagraha protests Gandhi was imprisoned because he wasn’t following the british law of not protesting against rights and freedom. In 1919, India was still under control of the british, Gandhi had organised a few more protests even though he was really poor. After those protests were over he was imprisoned again. He also went on a few hunger strikes as a protest that he won’t eat their food. So, the british let Gandhi go with all of the other people.Mahatma continued again afterwards. These protests were called Sabarmati, Gandhi’s salt march, The March on Washington, Lysistrata, Self Immolation of Thich Quang Duc and Take back the night. He had to fight for India’s freedom rights and independence rights until one day, August 15, 1947. Although, he got the freedom and independence for India, he had to watch friends and family die and he had to suffer himself. In 1948, Mahatma Gandhi was killed by getting shot three times in the chest. He was assassinated in New Delhi and was killed by Nathuram Godse. Before, he was shot he was one of the greatest people to save India, by losing many lives, he saved many lives. Mahatma Gandhi has also taught us the lesson that we should remember, Nonviolence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man.
