Born on 2 October 1869, Mahatma Gandhi aka Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was a supreme leader of the Indian Independence movement. Employing non-violent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence. Popularly known as Bapu or the Father of the Nation, Gandhi has set the true example of great leadership for our young entrepreneurs. During his struggle to set India free from the British rule, the lean man had to go through a lot of obstacles; but his dedication and determination led him to succeed in his goal.
Nelson Mandela, South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician, and philanthropist has credited Gandhi as the ‘source of inspiration’.
