“Real strength resides in your ability to express your ideals.” –Mahatma Gandhi
Did you know?
On September 16th of 1932, Mahatma Gandhi began a “fast unto death” to protest British support of a new Indian Constitution that would separate the Indian electorate by caste, thereby segregating the “untouchables” & ensuring that the social classes would remain unfairly divided. After just six days, the British accepted an alternate proposal & he was able to break the fast. However, Gandhi’s non-violent & steadfast commitment to social justice continued until “The Great Soul” was assassinated in 1948.
