Mahatma Gandhi Short Biography in Indian Sign Language


Hello everyone! Today my topic is “Mahatma
Gandhi”and his name was Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Let me spell this. Mahatma Gandhi was lovably called as
“Bapu”. He was born on 2nd October 1869 at Porbandar in Gujarat.
His father was a high official of Porbandar and his mother was a religious
woman. Gandhiji was average in studies. But he derived the modesty from his
father. His father was an idol for him. He learned morale through his mother. Stories such Satya Harish Chandra highly influenced Gandhi to lead a principled
life. At the age of 19 Gandhiji went to England to become a lawyer. After
returning back to India he began to practice law at Bombay with little
success. So when he received an offer to work for a firm in South Africa he was
ready to oblige it .At that time Gandhiji had a wife named Kasturi Bai. Gandhi
went to South Africa while being in South Africa which was dominated by the
Europeans, Gandhi often felt the discrimination by the Europeans against
the Indians.On one such occasion he was forced to give up his seat in the first
class compartment to a European when he refused to do so he was beaten by the
courts driver and was thrown out of the train. This proved to be the wake-up call
for Gandhi to fight against the suppression. He soon found out the way
and that’s called the force of truth. With the newly found Satyagraha, Gandhiji was
able to combat the discrimination against the Indians. He encouraged them for the
right to vote and taught them to be independent. He motivated the people
about the human rights and spreaded the awareness for which he became a national
hero. In 1940 while came back to India, the country was under the rule of
British. Gandhi immediately joined the freedom movement ,the rule of our own
countrymen. The Indian freedom struggle got much powerful when Gandhi joined
them. In 1921 he was made the leader of Indian
National Congress where he followed the principle of non-violence. In 1930 as
the British government imposed tax on the salt.
Gandhiji took a 400 kilometers march to a seashore called Dandi where he made
salt with his own hands to show his protest against the evil tax.
He was also encouraged the people to use homemade Khadi which was made by an
instrument named “Charkha”. It was not only aimed to provide self-dependence it was
indeed an act of rebellion against foreign made clothes. He showed them the
way a leader should be calm,simple and humble. Though a religious person always
changing the names of God and reciting Bhagavad-Gita .Gandhiji always against
the social evils such as Untouchability. He always believes in equality. With such
qualities he was rightly called as “Mahatma” the Great Soul. Whenever his ways
of non-violence has not yielded the expected result, he resorted to a hunger
strike placing his own life in danger of the cause. In the ye ar 1942 he invoked a
movement called Quit India Movement. By the year 1947, the British government has
enough troubles to seek in India. So it did leave India but only after dividing
it into two countries India and Pakistan. Gandhi was happy for the independence
but he was shattered as the partition was not the peaceful process. It led to
the violent clashes between the Hindus and the Muslims. Gandhi repeatedly went
to the hunger strike to restore peace among the country. On one such occasion
in 1948 in New Delhi, Gandhi completed two days hunger strike where he was shot
dead by a Hindu nationalist called Nathuram Godse. As Gandhiji was no
to lead the nation but his principles and characters always shown the best way
to follow. Gandhiji rightly called as the “Man of the Millennium”.
