The power of Gandhi’s words still inspire us to be able to fight just by changing our attitude towards a situation.He strongly believes nonviolence is a weapon of the strong and fought for it until it become true. The words that he express were soo inspiring and true : Here are some :
“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs ,but not every man’s greed.”
This was so true , a person should never hope for more when he already have enough. He’s such a great personality .
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others “
” Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.”
” The greatness of humanity is not in being human,but in being humane.”
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow . Learn as if you were to live forever.”

He’s a living legend in our heart . He’s usually a desire for justice and equality and is motivated by a strong sense of right and wrong .He tends to be a empathetic ,warm-hearted and supportive.He believes in resistance and persistence- “first they ignore you ,then they laugh at you , then they fight you ,and then you win. He always suggests to build love about a person instead of hate ,it will always effect you in a positive way.
He lead so many missions such as salt satyagraha, Quit India movement,Kheda agitation ,Champaran agitation, Khailafat movement , non-corporation movement, and many more . He’s one of the main reason for the inpendence of our country.Gandhi’s statements, letters and life have attracted much political and scholarly analysis of his principles, practices and beliefs, including what influenced him. Some writers present him as a paragon of ethical living and pacifism, while others present him as a more complex, contradictory and evolving character influenced by his culture and circumstances.
Being a active leader ,he fought for swaraj- self rule by his motto “DO OR DIE”. He believed that swaraj can also be possible by non-violence.According to Gandhi, a non-violent state is like an “ordered anarchy”.Swaraj to Gandhi did not mean transferring colonial era British power brokering system, favours-driven, bureaucratic, class exploitative structure and mindset into Indian hands. He warned such a transfer would still be English rule, just without the Englishman. “This is not the Swaraj I want”, said Gandhi.
