Speech on Mahatma Gandhi in English

'Good morning everyone!', it’s with great pride and honor I want to say a few words about the father of our nation Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. 

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on October 2 1869  at Porbandar Gujarat. He was the son of the chief minister of Porbandar, Karamchand Gandhi and his mother was Putlibai. He was raised in a very religious background and that was the reason from the beginning itself he was taught about the importance of self-discipline and nonviolence.

At the age of 19, Gandhi left his home to study law in London. Time passed and in 1891 he started his law practice in Bombay court. As he found the success he was approached to represent an Indian firm in South Africa. 

With his wife Kasturbai and his children, he lived in South Africa for almost 20 years. 

So you may be thinking what resulted in him fighting for the independence of the country?. 

Well as he was an Indian immigrant in South Africa he had to face a lot of discrimination. 

Once Gandhi was on a train journey where he was beaten and thrown out of the first-class compartment by a white driver as he refused to give up his seat to a European passenger. 

This incident is considered to be a turning point in Gandhi’s life as it resulted in him reflecting upon the situation of how Indians are treated in society. 

Initially, Gandhi started teaching everyone the concept of truth and firmness or satyagraha. He believed that passive resistance was the only way to fight against violence, discrimination, and injustice everyone faced and through passive resistance only can freedom be achieved. 

In July 1914, After spending almost 20 years in South Africa Gandhi returned to India. In 1919 Gandhi launched an organized campaign of passive resistance against the Rowlett Act. He had to withdraw his campaign against Rawlatt act after witnessing the massacre of 400 British led Indian soldiers. And by 1919 he was the most visible leader in the movement for Indian Independence. 

After many attempts which included numerous fast and nonviolent protests against British rule, India was finally granted Independence by Britsh in 1947 but split country into 2 colonies: India and Pakistan. Gandhiji was against this decision which divided the country but finally agreed upon thinking that Hindus and Muslims would achieve peace internally after partition. 

On January 30, 1948, Gandhiji was on his way back from an evening prayer in New Delhi when he was shot dead by Nathuram Godse. He was a Hindu Fanatic who was furious about the fact that Gandhi was against the partition and was negotiating on canceling it. 

The next day millions mourned and he was cremated on the banks of the Holy Jumna river. 

To conclude this speech I wanna say that Mahatma Gandhiji’s life is an open book through which many things could be learned. His passive resistance approach to solving life and the way he was always in a state of self-discipline if implemented by everyone could lead to success. He loved each and every one of us. He kept many fast as there were riots due to partition in 1947  and he tried his best to stop the partition but in the end, he was shot dead by a lunatic. It is very sad to see that to this day people are fighting in the country in the name of religion. If we love and respect him and all the freedom fighter who fought to achieve independence in our country we should be Indians first and stop violence in the name of religion. 


Short Speech on Mahatma Gandhi

'Good morning everyone!', Today we are here to give a small tribute to the father of our nation and I hope which I am going to do that. 

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on October 2 1869  at Porbandar Gujarat. He was the son of the chief minister of Porbandar, Karamchand Gandhi and his mother was Putlibai. He was raised in a very religious background and from the beginning, he was taught about the value of self-discipline and nonviolence.

At the age of 19, Gandhi left his home to study law in London, and in 1891 he was asked to represent an Indian firm in South Africa. With his wife Kasturbai and his children, Gandhi lived in South Africa for almost 20 years.

Gandhi was an Indian immigrant in South Africa so he had to face a lot of discrimination and once he was traveling in a train where he was asked to give up his first-class seat to a European traveler. He refused and as a result of that, he was beaten and thrown out of the train by a white driver. This incident is considered to be the turning point in Gandhi’s life as it made him think about how Indians are abused by the British. 

He started teaching everyone passive resistance and in July 1914, After spending almost 20 years in South Africa Gandhi returned to India to get India its Independence. 

Finally in 1947 British gave India its independence but divided the country into 2 colonies: India and Pakistan. Gandhi was against the partition. 

On January 30, 1948, Gandhiji was on his way back from an evening prayer in New Delhi when he was shot dead by Nathuram Godse. He was a Hindu Fanatic who was furious about the fact that Gandhi was against the partition and was negotiating on canceling it. The next day millions mourned and he was cremated on the banks of the Holy Jumna river.

I want to conclude by saying that the life of Mahatma Gandhi is an open book where we could learn how to approach life and the importance of non-violence. He lived for the countries betterment and he died for the country. Thank you.
