Extracts from this document...

Introduction

´╗┐mahatma gandhi is remembered in the world for four major things. They are non-violence, truth, love and fraternity. By applying these four things he brought freedom to India. His full name was mohandas karamchand Gandhi. He was born in porebandar of gujarat on 2 october 1869. his father was an officer in charge of a province. mohandas married while he was reading in high school. after passing the entrance examination he went to england to study law .Gandhi was not born great. he was an ordinary child like many of us also a teenager.

His death was mourned all over the world. his body was cremated at raj ghat in new delhi. we observe this day as the martyr day every year.
