“A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.”
Constant growth is a part o life
Gandhi would understand the importance of continual growth in his life. Despite being an accompolished leader in his community, Gandhi continually sought out greater understanding through much study of religious scripture.
As a leader, you must also understand the need for constant growth. It is your constant strive for growth and improvement that will take you and your organization to another level. As your organization should never stop growing, so shouldn’t you.
Mohandas Gandhi was born in Oct 2, 1869 into a family of royalty. His father was the Prime Minister of a state in India and he was the son of this father’s 4th wife.
From young, he was reading a lot of Hindu Scriptures and Indian Classics and this gave him a foundation for his work in his later years.
At a young age of 13, he was married to his wife of age 14, due to the customs of the region at that time. They would have a miscarriage, and go on to have four sons.
Gandhi travelled to London and studied law in University College London and was trained as a barrister. He wanted to established a law practice in London but failed and went on to accept a job from an Indian firm in South Africa.
It was in South Africa that he witnessed first-hand the discrimination against his own people and in a few incidents; he was being discriminated as well.
This led him into politics as he fought for the rights of the Indians in South Africa. He would use his tactics of massive civil disobedience and in the end, he forced the South African General to come to a compromise with him.
In 1915, Gandhi returned to India and he entered into politics and began speaking at the National Indian Congress. He would go on to assist poverty in the villages there and expressly spoke against certain British policies at discriminated against Indians.
Gandhi would employ non-cooperation, non-violence and peaceful resistance as his “weapons” in the struggle against the British.
His most famous protest was called the Salt March. Against a British policy of taxing the use of salt for Indians, he would organize a 388 km march to the sea at Dandhi, Gujarat and make salt for himself. This campaign was extremely successful in upsetting the British and the government decided to negotiate with Gandhi.
It was during World War II that India’s Independence was fought hard for. Eventually after the war, British showed clear signs of handing over the independence of India to Indians.
Gandhi would eventually be assassinated when taking his nightly public walk in New Delhi. The whole nation mourned the loss of their leader. He would eventually be known as the Father of the Nation.
