Try living in a society where starving children lay on the streets looking for food, or where lack of education leads you nowhere. However, a man with knowledge and wealth helped his people fight for their rights. Gandhi’s background made him who he was; giving him an idea of how to get India’s independence, and impact on India helped people realized you can fight with knowledge and nonviolence to change a way of life.
Gandhi was a well knowledgeable and unique person who found hope in struggles that he never thought would shape who he was. Gandhi was born in a Hindu family, and even though he was the youngest he made a huge impact on others (“Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi” pg 3). He had his older brother who helped him with his education when his father passed away (“Mohandas Gandhi”). Gandhi was very religious even when he was little his brothers tried to make him eat meat (it wasn’t bad to eat meat in Hinduism when you are little), but he refused (“Mohandas Gandhi”). Gandhi respected his religion and was a respectful towards others.
Next, let’s talk about his education and where he went to get his education. Gandhi went to an all boy school Rajkot when he was seven (“Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi” pg3 ).once he finished elementary school he then went to high school because they didn’t have a middle school, and that’s when he started to think about his career (“Mohandas Gandhi”).Later when Gandhi finished high school he went to the university college in London to study law (“Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi”pg3). Even though he went to London he had good and bad experiences with it.
Besides his education his experiences he had also shaped him the way he was. When he went to London he was made fun of because he didn’t eat meat because of his religion (“Mohandas Gandhi”). Also when he came back from and tried to study law in India he found out his mother died in his absence (“Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi”pg3). Lastly, when he tried to go on a first class train they kicked him off the streets and a white driver beating him because he was a “colored” man. (“Mohandas Gandhi”). However with all his experiences it made him who we still remember today.
Gandhi wanted to change what was wrong in the world. His main issue was to get independence for India, so people can have an education and have a successful life...
