Mohandas Karamchand Ghandi was the man who changed India as he was an activist who fought for India’s rights and ultimately gained independance for India from the British army on 1947. Ghandi had many techiniques to persuade or fight the British army inorder to recieve their independance but one of the main method used to fight the British army was the use of Ghandi’s nonviolent movement which is know as Satyagraha or The Salt March. This social movement took place from March to April 1930 in India, was an act of civil disobedience led by Mohandas Gandhi to protest British rule in India. During the march, thousands of Indians followed Gandhi from his religious retreat near Ahmedabad to the Arabian Sea coast, a distance of some 240 miles. The march resulted in the arrest of nearly 60,000 people, including Gandhi himself and this eventually led to the independance after several years of people protesting. Although he was met with a large amount of criticism, violent resistance and incarcerations throughout his life, his movements did manage to make a direct impact throughout India. Most notably, this is true with the independence of India on August 15, 1947.
