The Achievement of Mahatma Gandhi

The purpose of this paper is to analyze the achievement of Mahatma

Gandhi. Mahatma's name is Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Gandhi was a Indian

political and spiritual leader that lived from 1869 to 1948. In South Africa he

fought for Indian population and practiced law there as well. He worked hard for

Indian independence from Great Britain and He gave up on western ways to have

a abstinence and spiritual life. Most of his fights was by him fasting until the

violence has ended. His achievements were all by his fight against violence and

the unfairness in this world. He has helped a lot of people by fighting against

violence and the Indian population.

Gandhi helped everywhere he went like when Gandhi was still deeply

important than what they achieve.

Gandhi succeeded because in 1915 he returned to India and within five
