Mahatma Gandhi

Mahātmā Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (/ˈɡɑːndi, ˈɡæn-/; Hindustani: [ˈmoːɦənd̪aːs ˈkərəmtʃənd̪ ˈɡaːnd̪ʱi] ( listen); 2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mahātmā (Sanskrit: "high-souled", "venerable")—applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa—is now used worldwide. In India, he is also called Bapu ji (Gujarati: endearment for father,) and Gandhi ji. He is unofficially called the Father of the Nation.

Did you know that Gandhi wrote a letter to Hitler?

In 1939, Gandhi wrote two letters to Hitler addressed " My dear friend " urging him not to go to war. The letters were not received for some unknown reason and are currently preserved in India.
