Synopsis by Alice Day
The focus of this program is Mahatma Gandhi, outlining his life's work and the nonviolent resistance with which he met opposition. Worshipped by Hindus, who called him "Mahatma," or great soul, Gandhi fought for equal rights for Indians in South Africa, and later to free his countrymen from colonial rule. Warwick History: Mahatma Gandhi explores the enigma of the fragile-appearing man who possessed the strength of character to champion his people. His assassination is talked about, and his enduring legacy of nonviolence in the face of adversity.
