Je vais vous parler d’un homme qui a été très important en Inde

Gandhi was born in 1869, when the British ruled India. He went to England for his studies and when he came back Gandhi fought for the liberation of India. He spent a total of 12 years in prison.

When he was released from prison, Gandhi visited many Indian Villages to know what the peasants wanted. He wanted his country to become independent and started a non-violent campaign to free India from British rule. In 1930 he led a campaign of civil disobedience against the British tax on salt. He made 300 km on foot during the salt march.

But Gandhi was not only against the British rule but also against social injustice in Indian society. He fought against child marriages because himself and his wife were married when they were 13.

India became independent in 1947. The same year Gandhi was shot and killed by a Hindu fanatic. There was a partition on India when the United Kingdom granted the independence to India. Two states were created : Pakistan and India in August 1947.

Gandhi was the nationalist leader of India who brought independence in his country. Gandhi Is the international symbol of the free India. The Hindu considers Gandhi as saint.
