Mahatma Gandhi was born to a Hindi family in Porbandar, India. He lived a normal Indian boy life in the traders caste. When Gandhi got married an arranged marriage to Kasturba Makhanji.

When Gandhi turned 18, he moved to London to study law in London’s University College. In 1891 Mahatma graduated as a lawyer and returned to his home country, India. He worked as a lawyer in many countries and in 1903 he founded a lawyer office in Johannesburg, South Africa.

When war broke out in 1939, Mahatma Gandhi was still the most influential man in India. His attitude during the war years was difficult to define. He could not be described as having opposed the basic cause for which Great Britain stood: popular government, the rights of the individual man, national independence. Still he could not bring himself to support the British in war. War was in his view a bad thing. Gandhi thought that disagreements could be solved without violence, but since People were still attending the war, he started a hunger strike to make things change. Curiously enough, people stopped fighting and came so called peace.
