As an average student, Mahatma Gandhi passed the primary examination from Porbandar and high school from Rajkot. On 4 September 1888, Gandhiji went to London to study law. During his stay in London, Gandhiji embraced foreign culture in his dress and speech, but in terms of food, he was a pure vegetarian. He had to return to India after receiving information about the demise of his mother. In 1883, Gandhiji signed a one-year contract to work in an Indian firm, Abdullah & Co., located in the Natal region of South Africa.

Biography of Mahatma gandhi 

In South Africa, Mahatma Gandhi became a victim of discrimination against Indians. He was asked to travel in third class despite being a first class ticket of the railway and failing which he was pushed from the moving rail. While living in South Africa, Gandhiji launched several movements against apartheid policy. After returning to India in 1915, Gandhiji came in contact with reputed Congress leader Gopal Krishna Gokhale. He used to raise his voice in the Indian National Congress for the interests of the general public.

In 1917 and 1918, Mahatma Gandhi performed the Champaran Satyagraha in protest against the cultivation of indigo and non-food items rather than food. After this, Gandhiji, along with his followers, gathered people from all over the country and started the non-cooperation movement, emphasizing on non-violence. He emphasized to the Indian citizens to boycott foreign goods and adopt indigenous things. Gandhiji's popularity had reached a peak throughout the country.

In 1930, he marched the historical Dandi to break the salt law made by the British. When the Congress was forcing the British government to leave India, the Muslims demanded a separate nation for themselves. Pakistan was formed on the night of 14 August 1947 and Indian independence was declared at midnight of 15 August 1947. Within a year of independence, a Hindu nationalist named Nathuram Godse shot and killed Gandhiji during a prayer meeting on 30 January 1948.

Gandhiji (Mahatma Gandhi) was also a good writer who showed the path of non-violence to the public. For several decades, Gujarati newspapers named Gandhiji Harijan were edited in Hindi and English language. Apart from his autobiography "My Experiments with Truth", Gandhiji has written many books. After being influenced by these ideals of Gandhiji, who considered Satyagraha, non-violence and simplicity to be the basic mantra of a successful human life, Rabindranath Tagore first gave him the status of Mahatma, that is, great soul. Gandhiji (Mahatma Gandhi) devoted his life to the wider pursuit of truth.

Gandhiji's principle of truth
Truth is the highest truth in the world for Gandhiji.
