Abstract

Mahatma Gandhi is not only a freedom fighter but also a social and economic revolutionary. His idea of Satyagraha by the method of non-violence is praised and followed all over the world. Gandhi is not a name but an idea that incorporate the feeling of Struggle, Nationalism and Sacrifice. Gandhi played a crucial role in the freedom struggle of India. He is known for his various Satyagraha to oppose unjust laws made by the British. Some of the popular movements led by Mahatma Gandhi are Champaran Satyagraha for indigo planters, Ahmedabad Mill Satyagraha for an increase of wages of mill workers, Kheda Satyagraha for Patidar peasants, Satyagraha against Rowlett Act, Salt Satyagraha against the tax imposed on salt and Quit India movement for freedom of India. Hence, we can conclude that the movement led by Mahatma Gandhi played a significant role in the freedom of India, and that is why he can be considered as the architect of the Indian struggle for freedom.
