The story of Mahatma Gandhi has encouraged and inspired people all over the world. He brought down an empire by proclaiming brotherhood and nonviolence. He influenced men like Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela to fight for freedom through non violent means. He protected the rights of the weak and defenceless, he was the champion of the oppressed and downtrodden. He was the catalyst, if not the initiator of three of the major revolutions of the 20th century. The movements against colonialism, racism, and violence. And he left a special message for you and me.
