Mohandas Gandhi By: emma freeman

I was born on October 2nd, 1869 in Porbandar, India. I come from a wealthy family as my father was the prime minister to the raja of three city-states. I moved to England to study law and became a lawyer in 1891 but I did not like the England lifestyle and sailed for Bombay. I am now married to Kasturba Gandhi and together we had our sons Harilal, Ramdas, Manilal and Devdas.

I wanted to help you, the people of India, from the British raj. From 1858 to 1947 the British caused famines, we were forced to grow cash crops, they raised rent, caused many of us to lose our land and work and beat us. They did little good like creating transportation. I knew I had to something.

I organized a lot of non-violence movements as I fasted. The Salt March in 1930, thousands and I marched for 23 days because India was being heavily taxed by the British and I wanted to mobilize powers. I was later imprisoned.

I later lead the Indian National Congress in 1885 which included educated Hindus. We gained say in our government and helped gain an independent India.

This is my friend my Nehru who later becomes the first prime minister of an Independent India.
