Fight Child Trafficking | Child Labor | Gandhi Worldwide Mahatma Gandhi Biography Early Life Indian nationalist leader Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, more commonly known as Mahatma Gandhi, was born on October 2, 1869, in Porbandar, Kathiawar, India, which was then part of the British Empire. His father, Karamchand Gandhi, served as a chief minister in Porbandar and other states in western India. Young Gandhi was a shy, unremarkable student who was so timid that he slept with the lights on even as a teenager. In 1885, Gandhi endured the passing of his father and shortly after that the death of his young baby. Upon returning to India in 1891, Gandhi learned that his mother had died just weeks earlier. Spiritual and Political Leader When Gandhi arrived in South Africa, he was quickly appalled by the discrimination and racial segregation faced by Indian immigrants at the hands of white British and Boer authorities. Gandhi formed the Natal Indian Congress in 1894 to fight discrimination. Gandhi continued to study world religions during his years in South Africa. Assassination

Top 50 Dystopian Movies of All Time Massive dehumanization, totalitarian government, rampant disease, post-apocalyptic terrains, cyber-genetic technologies, societal chaos and widespread urban violence are some of the common themes in dystopian films which bravely examine the ominous shadow cast by future. A dystopia is a fictional society that is the antithesis or complete opposite of a utopia, an ideal world with a perfect social, political and technological infrastructure. A world without chaos, strife or hunger. In contrast, the dystopian world is undesirable with poverty and unequal domination by specific individuals over others.

Gandhi (film) Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Gandhi est un film indo-britannique de Richard Attenborough sorti en 1982. Le film retrace différents éléments célèbres de la vie de Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi et de la lutte pour l'indépendance indienne. 300 000 figurants ont été engagés pour la scène des funérailles. 200 000 d'entre eux étaient bénévoles et 94 560 ont obtenu une petite somme d'argent. Mahatma Gandhi Desde 1918 perteneció abiertamente al frente del movimiento nacionalista indio. Instauró métodos de lucha social novedosos como la huelga de hambre, y en sus programas rechazaba la lucha armada y realizaba una predicación de la áhimsa (no violencia) como medio para resistir al dominio británico. Defendía y promovía ampliamente la total fidelidad a los dictados de la conciencia, llegando incluso a la desobediencia civil si fuese necesario; además, bregó por el retorno a las viejas tradiciones hindúes. Mantuvo correspondencia con León Tolstói, quien influyó en su concepto de resistencia no violenta. Encarcelado en varias ocasiones, pronto se convirtió en un héroe nacional. Su influencia moral sobre el desarrollo de las conversaciones que prepararon la independencia de la India fue considerable, pero la separación con Pakistán lo desalentó profundamente.

ALL-TIME 100 Movies - TIME You like us, you really like us. You also hate us. Anyway, you click on us, which is the surest way a website has of measuring interest in its content. The All-TIME 100 Movies feature—compiled by Richard Schickel and me, and handsomely packaged by Josh Macht, Mark Coatney and all the smart folks at TIME.com—attracted a record-busting 7.8 million page views in its first week, including 3.5 million on May 23rd, its opening daym, in time for Father’s Day. Thousands of readers have written in to cheer or challenge our selections, and thousands more have voted for their own favorites. The idea was to assemble 100 estimable films since TIME began, with the March 3, 1923 issue. Not so simple, in fact, for we faced a couple of complications. Why do the list? LISTOMANIA I feel one of my grand gender generalizations coming on, and I can’t resist it, so here goes. As with baseball, so with favorite movies, TV shows, comics. I too was a teenage listmaker. But, pardon me, we’re better. Ah, Leone.

Mahatma Gandhi Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (pronounced [ˈmoːɦənd̪aːs ˈkərəmtʃənd̪ ˈɡaːnd̪ʱi] ( ); 2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was the preeminent leader of Indian nationalism in British-ruled India. Employing nonviolent civil disobedience, Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mahatma (Sanskrit: "high-souled", "venerable")—applied to him first in 1914 in South Africa,—is now used worldwide. He is also called Bapu (Gujarati: endearment for "father", "papa") in India. Gandhi famously led Indians in challenging the British-imposed salt tax with the 400 km (250 mi) Dandi Salt March in 1930, and later in calling for the British to Quit India in 1942. Gandhi is commonly, though not officially, considered the Father of the Nation in India.
