Description of Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi was a spiritual leader of the Indian, pacifist, thinker and politician who, through the motto of “non-violence” freed India from Britain through civil disobedience and peaceful resistance.

An example of temperance

Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869, was dark-skinned, very Indian-style, of small stature, only 1.64 meters tall, of thin build, something that can be attributed to his diet since sometimes he fed only with a few grains of rice. In his adult age it was characterized by his scanty white hair, which he kept quite short, and by the constant use of glasses.

In terms of its character, it should be noted that it was fairly faithful to ethical principles and considered that the objectives could be achieved peacefully and that it was not necessary to shed blood for Britain to convince itself to liberate India. Of an enormous perseverance, with capacity to resist several days without eating -something of leftovers demonstrated by his varied strikes of hunger- and with an admirable self-control.

In spite of everything, and although it was nominated several times to the Nobel Prize for Peace, Gandhi never obtained it, although this never demotivated him and ended up achieving the liberation of India. Paradoxically, this precursor of nonviolence ended his life being shot dead.
