Gandhi, one of the most influential individuals of all time, he used civil disobedience as a tool for social reform. Much of the struggles and suffering that Gandhi purposely produced at his own desire, were to initiate a social change to create harmony, to achieve equality and to deter discrimination. He would recommend and actively demonstrate civil disobedience as a moral method to achieve these goals, and would welcome and embrace suffering in the process. Gandhi exhibited a vow of fearlessness. He strived to eliminate discrimination and inequity in South Africa and India and welcomed personal suffering to do so. According to Gandhi civil disobedience would not be effective without the moral power of, and commitment to, Satyagraha. In my essay I will be discussing the beliefs and principles that Gandhi lived by.
Gandhi, was also known as Mahatma Gandhi, was born in Porbandar, in the modern state of Gujarat, on October 2, 1869, into a Hindu family. His parents belonged to the Vaisya caste of Hindu's. Gandhi was a shy and serious boy and grew up in an atmosphere of religious tolerance and acceptance of teachings of various Hindu sects. Gandhi was married at 13 years old, he married a girl named Kasturibhai. The wedding was arranged according to custom by his parents. The Gandhi's had four children. At the age of 19, Gandhi traveled to England to study law. During that time he began to develop his philosophy of life. He also studied the great Indian religious classic the Bhagavad-Gita and also turned to the New Testament of the Bible and to the teachings of Buddha. After finishing school, Gandhi returned to India to practice law but was unsuccessful.
In 1893, Gandhi went to South Africa to do some legal work. South Africa was then under British rule. Almost immediately, he was abused because he was an Indian who claimed his rights as a British subject. He…...

...kites. Coca-Cola's most popular commercial for Summer 2002 was Aamir Khan's (a film star) `thanda matlab Coca-Cola' act in a pedestrian Mumbai restaurant. The first ad execution, called “Bombay Dreams” with A.R. Rahman (a famous music director), was so successful among the young target audience that it increased the sales by 50% for Coca Cola. Q5. Some analysts consider that Coca-Cola India made mistakes in planning and managing its return to India. Do you agree? What or who do you think was responsible for any mistakes? A5. Re-entry for Coca-Cola in India was not easy. It had to face a tough time when its application of an initial proposed joint venture with a local bottling company was turned down by the government headed by Rajiv Ghandhi. In contrast, PepsiCo’s application for entry through a joint venture was approved easily. Later Coca-Cola made its entry by joining forces with Britannia Industries (a local snack producer). In 1993 Coca-Cola filed an application to create a 100% owned soft drinks company. In July 93 it bought bottling plants from Parle in the key cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Surat and bought Parle’s leading brands, Thums Up, Limca, Citra, Gold Spot and Maza. Parle held 49% of marketing venture but took an equal 50% stake in the bottling venture. The later entry by Coca-Cola in the Indian market had its own costs in terms of requiring greater advertising expenditures. To make matters worse Coca-Cola was forced to disinvest under the new......

India in the Move

...death of more than 2000 people. The insecurity of this national war has been leading many Muslims and Hindus to run away from their cities. More over, the political parties are also implicated in those conflicts, for example BJP party is the political wing of the Hindu religious group (RSS) and criticized for it fundamentalism. Although an urbanization tendency, 72% of its population is still rural in 2001. Poverty is hardly hitting some parts of the country, 44% of the population is poor. Having been a British crown colony for 89 year, India was able to benefit form a legal educational system based on English standards, however, the colon gave very little authority to Indian which anger the population and led to revolutions. Mahatma Ghandhi, leader of the revolution, led a campaign of civil disobedience with the ideals of “swadeshi”, self-sufficiency, which had lasted over 25 years until India’s Independence in 1947. However, after the independence, India experienced a relatively slow economic growth until 1991 which was due to multiple reasons: Politic: India’s republic is a parliamentary democracy based on the British system, it is a central bureaucracy composed of 28 states and 7 union territories. Each state has all tax right on its agricultural income, land and regulation on property ownership. Of 44 years after the independence, the Congress party, led by the Nehru-Gandhi dynasty, was in control for 33 years. However, having known some big scandals, the party......

Ghandhi

...Mohandas Gandhi- Biographie Mohandas Gandhi est né à Gujarat, une partie ouest de l'Inde le 2 octobre, 1869. Il était un enfant timide, et a été marié à l'âge de treize ans à une fille du même âge, nommé Kasturbai. Après la mort de son père, la famille de Gandhi l'a envoyé en Angleterre en 1888 pour étudier le droit. Là, il s’est intéressé à la philosophie de la non-violence, exprimée dans la Bhagavad Gita. En 1891 il est retourné en Inde et a trouvé peu de succès dans ses tentatives à le pratiquer le droit, mais il a accepté un poste en Afrique du Sud pendant un an. En Afrique du Sud, il s’est impliqué dans les efforts pour mettre fin à la discrimination contre la minorité indienne là, ceux qui étaient opprimés par les Britanniques et par les Boers. Il a fondé le « Natal Indian Congress », qui a travaillé à d'autres intérêts indiens. Après la guerre des Boers, la réputation de Gandhi comme un chef de file a grandi, et il est devenu encore plus admiré. En 1914, quand Gandhi a quitté l'Afrique du Sud et est retourné en Inde, il était connu comme un saint homme: les gens l'appelaient "Mahatma", ou "grande âme." À ce moment, il était encore loyal à l'Empire britannique, mais quand les Britanniques ont réprimé les libertés civiles indiennes après la Première Guerre mondiale, Gandhi a commencé à organiser des manifestations non violentes. « L’Amritsar Massacre », où les troupes britanniques ont tué des Indiens innocents, a convaincu Gandhi de créer des campagnes de......

Truth Behind the Veil

...with racism when we become tyrant, we hate those that have destroyed us, but those who have been destroyed have the tendency to blame someone, and those who are blamed or hated on are the ones who seemingly are the same to those have destroyed. The Burmese people hated the British for they ruled their land without hesitation and the British hated the Burmese for further mocking them and thinking them as their beneath. From what we can learn in this essay as it also compares to Zayn Kassam’s essay is that we can’t make the assumption that man or woman from the same society, ethnicity, or culture are the same and we cannot use violence to solve all our problems. Violence is not the answer, but peace is the solution, that is the teaching of Ghandhis “Satyagaha”. But for centuries, violence leading to war has been the standard to keeping peace, but does that mean violence equals peace? On the contrary, with the teaching of Stayagraha we can resist without being violent, and if followed we’d probably have a lot less wars. This teaching may not prevent racism and oppression entirely, but it can certainly prevent escalation of racism and oppression. With the principles of Satyagraha, the Burmese could have resisted against the British by turning against rather than being violent against and if Orwell was fearless, non-violent, and truthful with himself he wouldn’t have felt forced to kill an elephant. The same can also be said with America and the Muslim countries. With this......
