On March 12, 1930, a sixty year-old ex-lawyer clad in dhoti and armed with a walking stick set out with 78 of his trusted associates from the banks of the Sabarmati River en route to the sea. They embarked with the implicit intention of liberating their country from English rule. The lawyer himself vowed “till Swaraj is established in India…Only with complete victory can we return to this place.” In India today, Gandhiji is considered a saint by the masses. Also known as the FATHER OF THE NATION, he graces its banknotes. As with most saints, the essence of his message has been forgotten much more rapidly than the trivia of his deeds.
