Bursilym from Quazen takes us on an amazing journey into the life of Mohandas Gandhi , who was perhaps one of the most inspirational leaders of our time. He gave hope to people when it looked as though there wasn't any. He cared for a country that is rich with cultural heritage-full of life, beauty, and love.

Mohandas Gandhi was born in Porbander, Western India on 2 October 1869. His father Karamchand Gandhi was the Prime Minister of the small Porbander state. Mohandas’s mother, Putlibai, was Karamchand’s fourth wife, as the other three wives had died while giving birth. Mohandas grew up with his mother and father in Porbander.

But, in May 1883, the thirteen year old Mohandas got married to a fourteen year old girl named Kasturbai Makhanji. This marriage was arranged as a child marriage, according to the custom of the region. In 1885, when Gandhi was only 15 years old, this couple had their first child. But the child only survived a few days. Mohandas and Kasturbai had four more children: Harilal, Manilal, Ramdas and Devdas. Read More
