Mohunduras Ghandi: His Vital Role in India's Independence Mohunduras Ghandi was a man that the world thought could never exist.

George C. Wallace, the United States Secretary of State when Mohandas K. Gandhi was assassinated, said that Gandhi had become a spokesman for the conscience of all mankind- a man who made humility and simple truth more powerful than empires (Gandhi, np). Gandhi is well known for his leadership in the liberation of India from Britain, but his main goal and message transcends beyond the acts he did, into everyday living. Gandhi promoted simple living, non-violence, and forgiveness as a way to unite all people peacefully. These principles helped him to liberate his people and to teach them a lesson that all can learn.

... ught that when one is pushed towards injustice, one must simply refuse and not fight back. To take the blows of their oppressors and not become servants would have both moral and practical value. Morally, violence and hatred are wrong by most, if not all, religions. Often though, some form of self-defense is considered excusable. Gandhi said I cannot intentionally hurt anything that lives, much less human beings, even though they may do the greatest wrong to me (Logue, 23). He also said of cooperation with Britain that non-cooperation with evil is a duty, and British rule of India is evil (Gandhi, np). That gave a moral basis for non-cooperation, and non-violence against Britain. Practic ...

Gandhi And Hitler Together Again - 782 words
Gandhi, an incredible man, had very unique views on violence and its power over others. Adolf Hitler, another incredible man albeit for different reasons, also had individual views on violence. Gandhi was opposed to violence, as he believed it only solved problems temporarily and that it led to further violence in the future. Peace was what solved problems in his mind, not violence. Violent protests that resulted in change never succeeded fully; those changes were usually revoked or altered. Changes made in good spirits, under flags of peace, were never removed once put into place. The most recognized peaceful protest was Gandhis Salt March, which involved Hitler was on the opposite end of t ...

Heroes do not always have to be shown wearing a cape or costume. Instead, true heroism comes from your good virtues and wisdom.

Gandhi Movie Summary - 529 words
The movie Gandhi starts off with the assassination of Gandhi on January 30, 1948. He was killed because of the split of Hindus and Muslims into Pakistan and India, instead of trying to keep the country united (which was impossible at the time). The story then jumps back to Gandhi early in his life, when he is a practicing attorney. He is traveling in South Africa on a train and is thrown off because he refuses to give up his first class seat. The conductor wants him to move because he is Indian. This upsets him and he organizes a burning of the discriminatory codes. The protestors are arrested and released. Gandhi is motivated by religious means; he believes that everyone is equal in Gods ey ...

Mahatma Gandhi (Mohandas Karamchand) "Generations to come will scarce believe that such a one as this ever walked upon this earth in flesh and blood". -Albert Einstein Throughout history most national heroes have been warriors, but Gandhi was a passive and peaceful preacher of morals, ethics, and beliefs.
