Mahatma Gandhi with great personality
Mahatma Gandhi was a great person. He had created his own personality which has left its impact till now and mostly whole world remembered him. Everyone admire him and remember him for his non-violence.
Every work he did was done wholeheartedly no matter for who so ever he was working for. He once wrote in a letter, that he risked his life four times for England.
Mahatma Gandhi were frequently arrested and imprisoned and shortly after officials thanks had been preferred for his services during the war he was sentenced to imprisonment and hard labor, after being beaten by the mob and left behind as dead. But no Persecution could make Mahatma Gandhi forget his ideal on the contrary his faith in it grew stronger for his trials. His only reply to violence meted out to him in South Africa was the famous little book Hind Swaraj published in 1908. This Pamphlet of Indian home rule is the gospel of heroic love.
When Mahatma Gandhi came back to India he had become very popular in South Africa and India. He published his book Hind Swaraj in which he gave some of his principles which were religious rather than political and at the bottom it was more radical than of others. But as these solutions were based on conditions of India, it had proved what an irresistible weapon Ahimsa, non-violence could be. He was determined,therefore to study conditions in India in order to adapt the weapon of Ahimsa. He was determined for his Satyagarah movement of not taking food till his choices are not taken in view. (Information taken from book on "Mahatma Gandhi" by Romain Rolland)
