Remembering Bapu: Gandhi Experiences
Freedom of any kind is very important, whether it is from an oppressive rule of the British or the freedom of speech and dialogue. We live in those times where we can freely talk about our ideas, more importantly can disagree without being prosecuted for it. There was a man who worked his way out from the turbulent times of British Raj, highly classist, treated Indians as an inferior race, and always wanted them to be serving the Raj. He paved a way for himself by making common people understand the importance of freedom especially from an alien rule.
Yes, we are talking about the Father of the Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, who was the pioneer of Indian Nationalist movement of the 19th century, disseminated the idea of non-violence amongst the masses; make them realize the importance of freedom. A harbinger of truth and self-reliance, the idea of Swaraj is what constituted the core of his beliefs.
