Centenary of Mahatma Gandhi’s Return 8.1.2015

Gandhiji’s stay in South Africa proved to be an important phase in his path to becoming a leading political figure of the 20th century. It was here that he developed his political views, ethics and leadership skills.
On 9th January, 1915, Gandhiji returned to India, where he supported the Home Rule movement, and became leader of the Indian National Congress, advocating the policy of non-violent, non-cooperation to achieve independence. His goal was to help poor farmers and laborers protest oppressive taxation and discrimination, with the ultimate objective being self-rule for India. He was unique in his leadership style and his ability to draw the Indian masses into the freedom struggle.
