Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in 1869 in British-occupied India. Though he studied law in London and spent his early adulthood in South Africa, he remained devoted to his homeland and spent the later part of his life working to make India an independent nation. Calling for non-violent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights around the world. Gandhi is recognized internationally as a symbol of hope, peace, and freedom.

I decided to read this book because i am from India and I wanted to learn about India got it's INDEPENDENCE. I recommend this book because there is a lot of history in it and Gandhi inspired Martin Luther King jr. Learn how violence is never the answer!

The book was about Ghandi's life and his family. It also included many facts about events that were happening in that period of time. I liked this book because it taught me to always stand up for what is right even if I am all alone.
