Here are the Mahatma Gandhi’s interesting life stories in short.


1.The whole world was his family


Long ago when a reporter asked Kasturba Gandhi how many children, she had, she replied “Four,but she also replied that Bapu, my husband, has four hundred million.”

Now, you can think why she said like this because 400 million was the population of India at that time.

Gandhi quotes on Love and Life

"Where there is love there is life."


2.He believed in the Dignity of Labour


Once upon a time Lalaji (Lala Lajpat Rai) and Mahatma Gandhi were staying at the house of an ardent nationalist, Shiv Prasad Gupta.

On their first day at the house of their host, Lala Lajpat Rai dressed new clothes after his bath and left his dirty and old clothes, in the bathroom.

The next morning he found the clothes washed and neatly folded, on his bed. He was delighted. Lalaji had been travelling a lot for Freedom Movement at that time and he had many more dirty clothes with him.

He politely asked Mr Gupta if he could put the whole lot of dirty clothes for washing.Mr Gupta said he certainly could.

So Lala Lajpat Rai got all his clothes washed.

When the time came for them to leave, the Lalaji said he would like to tip the servant who had washed his clothes. His host said it was not necessary but Lalaji insisted.

Mr Gupta went in search of the man who had washed the clothes of Lalaji but he shocked to know that, the clothes had not been washed by any of his servants.

Finally, a servant said, “It was the other man in the room with Lalaji who washed all the stained clothes. “I saw him hanging out the clothes to dry.”

Can you guess now, who had washed the clothes of Lalaji?

3.We are here to serve not to be served


A sanyasi (Monk), Swami Satydev spent a day at Sabarmati Ashram and then expressed a wish to stay there.

“I like the work you do here,” he told Gandhiji.

Gandhiji said he was welcome to stay at the ashram was meant for people like him, but added

“You will have to put away your saffron robes, and dress like the others here.”

The Swami did not like that.“I am sanyasi (Monk)!” he protested.

“I’m not asking you to renounce sanyas,” explained Gandhiji.

“Sanyas is a state of mind. Dress has nothing to do with it."

If you wear your ochre robes here, people will not allow you to do work out of respect for your robes, instead, they will serve you, and that would be contrary to the principles of this ashram. We are here to serve, not to be served.
The swami thought the matter over and decided to join the ashram.

On another occasion, a man in an advanced state of leprosy came to the ashram and asked for shelter.

“I’ve come to shed me skeleton here,” he said.

“I won’t go even if I’m pushed out.”

“How can I say there’s no shelter for you here?” said Gandhiji.

“You’re welcome.”

Nursed by Gandhiji, the man spent several days in the ashram before succumbing to the disease.

"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong."

4.He was Fearless


“I have no fear. That is why I’m unarmed.That is what ahimsa is about.”

When he visited the Northwest Frontier to meet his Pathan supporters, he was dwarfed by their height. They were tall and rugged, and all carried guns.

“Are you afraid? ” he asked them.

“Why else would you carry guns? ”

They stared at him, stunned into silence. No one had ever dared to question their courage.

“I have no fear,” continued Gandhiji.“That is why I’m unarmed. That is what ahimsa(Non-violence) is about.”

The leader of the group, Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan, threw down his gun, and the others followed suit.
