I left home to study law in London at the Inner Temple at the age of 19.
In the famous Salt March of April to May 1930, thousands of Indians followed me from Ahmadabad to the Arabian Sea.
The march resulted in the arrest of nearly 60,000 people, including myself.
After sporadic violence broke out, I decided to announce the end of the resistance movement to the dismay of many of my followers.
Statues of me were put in museums all around the world so people would remember me as a great leader who gained independence for India from Great Britain and a hero to all of my fellow countrymen.
