Mahatma Gandhi: Indian nationalist leader and nonviolence advocate (1869–1948)
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, commonly known as Bapu, was an Indian lawyer, anti-colonial nationalist and political ethicist who employed nonviolent resistance to lead the successful campaign for India's independence from British rule, and to later inspire movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific prefix Mahātmā, first applied to him in 1914 in South Africa, is now used throughout the world.
