We all know that ‘Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi’ was the preeminent leader of the Indian Independence movement in British-ruled India. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to Independence and inspired movements for civil rights across the world. So, on his birthday, these facts will make you understand what sort of a person he was and why is he the ‘Father Of Our Nation’.
1. Gandhi ji mentioned in his autobiography that he was not a courageous or outspoken leader. In fact, he was so shy that he could not talk to anybody in his school and often ran away from there.
2. Once he was boarding a train during which one of his shoes slipped and fell on the tracks. He then removed his another shoe and threw it near the first one just to help the person who would find the pair. This shows that how kind and helpful he was.
13. He had a set of false teeth, which he carried in a fold of his loincloth. He put them in his mouth only when he wanted to eat. After his meal, he took them out, washed them and put them back in his loincloth again.
