Gandhi in South Africa
Gandhi was the first colored man to stand up against the apartheid.
His dramatic success in South Africa led to his eventual leadership
of Indian National Congress.
In 1930, Gandhi defied the British law by making salt on the shores of Dandi. To enforce the law of the land, the British had to arrest the Indians and they courted arrest in millions and rendered the administration ineffective.
Gandhi with a spinning wheel. Gandhi used self-reliance as a
very powerful means to fight the foreign rule. He asked Indians to
make their own cloth, shunning British made garments.
The Great Soul
To a world torn apart by wars and violence, Gandhi gave a new
powerful weapon -- that of non-violence.
