Mahatma Gandhi was a visionary and a person of superlative moral and physical courage. His identity as a political activist in South Africa was an important prelude to his return to India, where he was destined to play a pivotal role in securing India’s Independence from the British Raj.

He was the primary leader of India’s Independence movement and also the architect of a form of civil disobedience or “Satyagrah” (meaning “the insistence of getting one’s truthful rights through peaceful means” or the Force of Truth”) that still influences and inspires the World even in the present day.

His work, achievements and reputation in South Africa, before his coming to India in 1915:

In 1893, Gandhi arrived in South Africa as a newly qualified lawyer, on a temporary assignment, to represent a local Indian trader in a commercial dispute. By the time he left South Africa he had through his work, secured significant legal concessions for the local Indian population in South Africa.

For over a decade, he prepared numerous petitions and memoranda, led deputations to the authorities, wrote letters to the Press and tried to promote public understanding and support in South Africa, as well as, in India and Britain for the cause of Indians in South Africa. His professional practice was largely devoted to the redressal of wrongs against the Indian community in South Africa. It was in South Africa that Gandhi developed his political views, ethics and leadership skills.

His stay in South Africa proved to be an important phase in his path to becoming a leading political figure of the 20th Century.

Satyagrah”: His peaceful method of agitation the “Satyagrah” in which campaigners went on peaceful marches and presented themselves for arrest in protest against unjust laws, (a passive form of Resistance) evolved in South Africa, before coming to India and eventually caught the fancy of the whole World.

Mahatma Gandhi’s Return to India:

On 09.01.1915, Gandhi returned to India, where he supported the Home Rule Movement and became a leader in the Indian National Congress advocating the policy of non-violent, non-cooperation, using indigenous “Charkha” spun clothes etc to achieve the goal of Indian Independence.

His goal was to help poor farmers and labourers to protest against oppressive taxation and discrimination, with the ultimate objective of self-rule for India.

He was unique in his leadership style and his simple living style inspired millions of Indians to respond to his call as one man during India’s Freedom struggle.

The appellation Mahatma (meaning “Great Soul”) was coined for him by the Indian Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore who was in turn fondly called “Gurudev” (meaning “the Teacher” or the “Enlightened One”) by Mahatma Gandhi.

“Mahatma Gandhi was born on 2nd October 1869 in Porbandar, Gujarat. He was truthful and honest from his boyhood. He travelled to England to study to become a barrister-at-law. Thereafter, he went to South Africa to start a practice as a lawyer. He spent twenty one years in South Africa from 1893 to 1914. There he found that the Indians and other dark skinned people were the oppressed sections of Society.

In 1894, he formed the Indian Natal congress to fight for the civil rights of the Indian community in South Africa.

Mahatma Gandhi returned to India on 9th January 1915 and took up the leadership of the national freedom struggle through non-violence. He launched many movements to force the British to concede India its independence on 15th august 1947. His famous autobiography, the story of “My experiments with Truth” has seen innumerable editions. He was assassinated by a fanatic on his way to a prayer meeting on January 30th, 1948.

On 8th January 2015, the Government of India released coins commemorating the Centenary year of the return of Mahatma Gandhi from South Africa during the “Pravasi Bhartiya Divas” in Gandhinagar”.
