Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was an Indian activist who was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British rule. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mah?tm? (Sanskrit: "high-souled", "venerable")  applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa is now used worldwide. In India, he is also called Bapu and Gandhi ji, and known as the Father of the Nation.
