Mahatma Gandhi was born in the western part of British-ruled India on October 2, 1869.
He was married at thirteen to a girl of the same age, Kasturbai.
Following the death of his father, Gandhi's family sent him to England in 1888 to study law.
He returned to India in 1891, having passed the bar, but found little success in his attempts to practice law.
In South Africa, he became involved in efforts to end discrimination against the Indian minority there, who were oppressed both by the British and by the Boers, descendants of the original Dutch settlers of the region.
He ended up remaining until 1914 (his wife and children had joined him, meanwhile, in 1896).
