Description:
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (Gujarati: મોહનદાસ કરમચંદ ગાંધી, , , ) (October 2, 1869 – January 30, 1948) was a major political and spiritual leader of India and the Indian independence movement. He was the pioneer of Satyagraha — the resistance of tyranny through mass civil disobedience, firmly founded upon ahimsa or total non-violence — which led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. Gandhi is commonly known in India and across the world as Mahatma Gandhi (Sanskrit: महात्मा mahātmā — "Great Soul") and as Bapu (Gujarati: બાપુ bāpu — "Father"). In India, he is recognized as the Father of the Nation and October 2, his birthday, is commemorated each year as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday.

Gandhi has been portrayed by actors in a number of feature films including: Gandhi (Ben Kingsley, 1982), The Making of the Mahatma (Rajit Kapur, 1996), Lage Raho Munna Bhai (Dilip Prabhavalkar, 2006), and Gandhi, My Father (Darshan Jariwala, 2007).

There are few fictional short stories or novels written about Gandhi. One of the most notable is Harry Turtledove's The Last Article.
