Mahatma Gandhi: Pre-eminent leader of Indian nationalism during British-ruled India
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was an Indian activist who was the leader of the Indian independence movement against British colonial rule.

The honorific Mahātmā was applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa – is now used worldwide. In India, he was also called Bapu, a term that he preferred and Gandhi ji, and is known as the Father of the Nation.
