There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.–Mahatma Gandhi

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869, when India was still under the British Empire.

More commonly known as “Mahatma,” he “pioneered a belief in resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience, based on total nonviolence. This concept helped India to gain independence, and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.”

His legacy lives on today. His commitment to non-violence, his belief in simple living — making his own clothes, eating a vegetarian diet, and using fasts for self-purification as well as a means of protest — have been a beacon of hope for oppressed and marginalized people throughout the world, says Biography.
