Biography of Mahatma Gandhi Ji
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on 2 October 1897 in western India in a coastal town of present-day Gujarat in a place called Porbandar. His father, Karamchand Gandhi, belonged to the Pansari caste of Sanatan Dharma and was the Diwan, Principal Minister of a small princely state (Porbandar) of Kathiawar during the British Raj. In Gujarati, Gandhi means Pansari  while in Hindi, Gandhi means perfume seller who is called perfumer in English.  Her mother Putlibai was from the Parnami Vaishya community. Putlibai was Karamchand’s fourth wife. His first three wives died at delivery. Due to the care of the devout mother and Jain traditions of that region, those influences were on the young Mohandas in the beginning who later played an important role in his life. These influences included feelings of excitement in the weak, vegetarian life, fasting for self-purification and tolerance among people of different castes.
He was married to 14-year-old Kastur Bai Makanji as soon as he completed 13 and a half years of age in May 1773. The wife’s maiden name was shortened to Kasturba and she was affectionately called Ba. The marriage was an arranged child marriage arranged by his parents which was prevalent in that area at that time. But it was the custom in that area that the teenage bride had to live longer than her parents’ house and her husband. When Gandhiji was 15 years old in 185, his first child was born. But she survived only a few days. And this year his father Karamchand Gandhi also passed away. Mohandas and Kasturba had four children, all of whom were sons. Harilal Gandhi was born in 18, Manilal Gandhi was born in 1892, Ramdas Gandhi was born in 1894 and Devdas Gandhi was born in 1900. He did his middle school from Porbandar and high school from Rajkot. He was an average student in both examinations. After matriculation, he passed the Shamaldas College in Bhavnagar with some difficulty. As long as he remained there, he remained unhappy because his family wanted him to be a barrister.
About a month before his 19th birthday, on 8 September 18, Gandhi went to England to study law and become a barrister at University College, London. While leaving India, a pledge given by the Jain monk Becharji to his mother to renounce meat, liquor and narrow ideology to the Hindus greatly influenced the time he spent in his royal capital, London. However, Gandhiji also experienced English customs such as going to dance classes for example. Still he could not digest meat and leaf cabbage by his landlady. He pointed to some vegetarian eateries. Instead of adopting directly what he had read about his mother’s wishes, he intellectually accepted his diet of vegetarian food. He joined the membership of the vegetarian society and was also selected for its executive committee where he laid the foundation of a local chapter. He later set up significant experience in agencies credited it with giving. Some of the vegetarian people he met were also members of the Theosophical Society. This society was founded in 185 to strengthen world brotherhood and was dedicated to the study of the literature of Buddhism and Sanatana Dharma.
They inspired Gandhiji to read Srimad Bhagavad Gita. Gandhi did not show any special interest in religion before reading about Hindu, Christian, Buddhist, Islam and other religions. He returned to India after being called back to the England and Wales Bar Association but did not have much success in advocating in Bombay. Later, when the application for a part-time job as a high school teacher was rejected, he made Rajkot his permanent place to write suit applications for the needy. But due to the stupidity of an English officer, he had to leave this business too. In his autobiography, he describes the incident as an unsuccessful attempt at philanthropy on behalf of his elder brother. This was the reason that he accepted the practice of advocating a one-year agreement with an Indian firm in 1893 in Natal South Africa, which was then part of the British Empire.
Gandhi returned from South Africa to live in India in 1915.  He expressed his views on the conventions of the Indian National Congress, but his views were on India’s main issues, politics and the then Indian Congress leader Gopal Krishna. Gokhale was a respected leader.
Champaran and Kheda
Kheda in 1914 and Gandhi in 1914 at the time of Champaran Satyagraha
Gandhi’s first major achievement came in 1914 in the Champaran Satyagraha and the Kheda Satyagraha, although the movements of indigo cash-paying food crops were also important, rather than the food crops necessary for his subsistence. The oppressed Indians were given nominal compensation allowance due to the strength of the zamindars (most of the British), which surrounded them in extreme poverty. Villages badly dirty and unhygienic; And was bound by liquor, untouchability and veils. Now due to a devastating famine, the British imposed oppressive taxes to compensate for the royal treasury, whose burden kept increasing day by day. This situation was disappointing. Kheda (Kheda), Gujarat had the same problem. Gandhiji built an ashram there where many of his supporters and new voluntary workers were organized. He made a detailed study and survey of the villages, keeping an account of the terrible incidents of atrocities on the creatures and also included the unproductive normal condition of the people. Creating confidence in the villagers, he started his work by cleaning the villages under which schools and hospitals were built and the rural leadership was motivated to eliminate many of the social evils mentioned above.
