Transcript of Gandhi's life

Gandhi was born October 2nd, 1869, in a coastal town called Gujarat.
He was born to karamchand and his mother,
putibai (karamchand's fourth wife). gandhi grew up
with his parents and the Jainist religion (Jainist=nonviolence). Gandhi also grew up with vegetarianism, fasting, self-purification, and the stories of Shravana and maharaja harishchandra.
On 4 September 1888, less than a month shy of his 19th birthday, Gandhi traveled to London, England, to study law at University College
London and to train as a barrister. His time in London, the Imperial capital, was influenced by a vow he had made to his mother in the presence of the Jain monk Becharji, upon leaving India, to observe the Hindu precepts of abstinence from meat, alcohol, and promiscuity. Although Gandhi experimented with adopting "English" customs taking dancing lessons for example he could not stomach the bland vegetarian food offered by his landlady and he was always hungry until he found one of London's few vegetarian restaurants. Influenced by Salt's book, he joined the Vegetrian
Society. GANDHI Child hood of Gandhi As Gandhi grew up, he saw how hard life was for Indaians how they were treated by British. Gandhi wanted to do something for his people without violence (because he believed that it would be far more effective than rebellion). He united most of India against the British in nonviolent protest , saying "we all are brothers and sisters in this world."
He hoped to establish a country that was completely based on nonviolence. October 2, Mohandas Gandhi is born in Porbandar, India

1869 Gandhi moves with his family to Rajkot, India 1876 Gandhi marries the 13-year-old Kasturba Makanji at the age of 13

The Satyagraha March, which triggered the wider Civil Disobedience Movement, was an important part of the Indian independence movement. It was a campaign of nonviolent protest against the British salt tax in colonial India which began with the Salt March to Dandi on March 12, 1930. It was the most significant organized challenge to British authority since the Non-cooperation movement of 1920-22, and the Purna Swaraj declaration of independence by the Indian National Congress on December 31, 1929. Mahatma Gandhi led the Dandi march from his Sabarmati Ashram to Dandi, Gujarat to produce salt without paying the tax, with growing numbers of Indians joining him along the way. When Gandhi broke the salt laws in Dandi at the conclusion of the march on April 6, 1930, it sparked large scale acts of civil disobedience against the British Raj salt laws by millions of Indians. Gandhi was arrested on May 5, 1930, just days before his planned raid on the Dharasana Salt Works. The Dandi March and the ensuing Dharasana Satyagraha drew worldwide attention to the Indian independence movement through extensive newspaper and newsreel coverage. The satyagraha against the salt tax continued for almost a year, ending with Gandhi's release from jail and negotiations with Viceroy Lord Irwin at the Second Round Table Conference. Over 80,000 Indians were jailed as a result of the Salt Satyagraha. The campaign had a significant effect on changing world and British attitudes toward Indian independence and caused large numbers of Indians to actively join the fight for the first time. However, it failed to result in major concessions from the British. THE MARCH TO THE SEA At midnight on December 31, 1929, the Indian National Congress raised the tricolour flag of India on the banks of the Ravi at Lahore. The Indian National Congress, led by Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru, publicly issued the Declaration of Independence, or Purna Swaraj, on January 26, 1930. (Literally in Sanskrit, purna, "complete," saw, "self," raj, "rule," thus "complete self-rule".) The declaration included the readiness to withhold taxes, and the statement:
We believe that it is the inalienable right of the Indian people, as of any other people, to have freedom and to enjoy the fruits of their toil and have the necessities of life, so that they may have full opportunities of growth. We believe also that if any government deprives a people of these rights and oppresses them the people have a further right to alter it or abolish it. The British government in India has not only deprived the Indian people of their freedom but has based itself on the exploitation of the masses, and has ruined India economically, politically, culturally and spiritually. We believe therefore, that India must sever the British connection and attain Purna Swaraj or complete independencwrong that touched them equally. 1888 - Gandhi sails to England so that he can study law
1944 - Gandhi's wife dies at age seventy-four
1947 - India gains independence from the British

"An Eye for and Eye makes the whole world blind." "Childhood" cuts off in the middle of Gandhi's
childhood. keep typing util you've brought Gandhi to India, or at least South America. If you copied and pasted, site your source, or retype the section in your own words. The paragraphs are kind of out of place next to the timeline. If you could stick them into the timeline, I think that it would help a lot.
