I Will Not Let

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948) was the pre-eminent political and ideological leader of India during the Indian independence movement. A pioneer of satyagraha, or resistance to tyranny through mass civil disobedience—a philosophy firmly founded upon ahimsa, or total nonviolence—Gandhi led India to independence and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world.  Gandhi is often referred to as Mahatma or "Great Soul," an honorific first applied to him by Rabindranath Tagore.  In India, he is also called Bapu or "Father" and officially honoured as the Father of the Nation.  His birthday, 2 October, is commemorated in India as Gandhi Jayanti, a national holiday, and worldwide as the International Day of Non-Violence.
