GANDHI'S SEVEN STEPS TO GLOBAL CHANGE

Blog32A

Mahatma Gandhi was born in India in 1869. He studied law in England and returned to practice in India, where he was subjected to discrimination. Among other things, this experience resulted in a decision to devote himself to selfless service for the welfare of all, through nonviolent means that can be—and have been—applied across the world.
