 Mahatma Gandhi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Gandhi was a mediocre student in his youth at Porbandar and later Rajkot, barely passing the matriculation exam for the University of Bombay in 1887, and joining Samaldas College, Bhavnagar.
Gandhi felt that one should be aware of worshipping the symbols and idols of the religion and not its teachings, such as worshipping the crucifix whilst ignoring its significance as a symbol for self-sacrifice, for example.
Gandhi maintained this was because of the sin committed by upper caste Hindus by not letting untouchables in their temples (Gandhi was committed to the cause of improving the fate of untouchables, referring to them as Harijans, people of Krishna).

His father died before Gandhi could finish his schooling, and at thirteen he was married to Kasturba [or Kasturbai], who was even younger.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (October 2, 1869 - January 30, 1948), known popularly as Mahatma Gandhi (Mahatma - Sanskrit: "great soul"), was one of the founding fathers of the modern Indian state and an influential advocate of Satyagraha (non-violent protest) as a means of revolution.
Gandhi's principle of satyagraha, often roughly translated as "way of truth" or "pursuit of truth", has inspired generations of democratic and anti-racist activists including Martin Luther King, Jr.
Gandhi became even more vocal in his demand for independence during World War II, drafting a resolution calling for the British to Quit India, which soon sparked the largest movement for Indian independence ever, with mass arrests and violence on an unprecedented scale.

 Rediff On The NeT: Pritish Nandy on the prodigal son   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Harilal alias Abdullah alias Hiralal was an aberration that an orphaned India was anxious to quickly forget, awash as it was in grief.
The degeneration of Harilal, from an affectionate, admiring son into a driven, drunken wreck is brilliantly portrayed by Menon, who captures every subtle nuance through a sustained performance and refuses to be awed by Naseeruddin's inspired portrayal of barrister Gandhi morphing into the Mahatma.
Harilal's helplessness as he watches the father he once loved, for whom he went all the way to South Africa and became a satyagrahi slowly moving away from him and becoming, instead, father to a nation fighting for freedom.

 H-Net Review: Goolam Vahed on Gandhi's Prisoner?: The Life of Gandhi's Son Manilal
Gandhi believed that this was the most effective way to train for life, at the core of which were human relationships.
With Gandhi spending long periods in prison and elder brother Hiralal preoccupied, Manilal was the "man of the house." His tasks, Gandhi reminded him in 1909, included being guardian of younger brothers Ramdas and Devadas, "looking after aunt Chanchi, nursing mother, and cheerfully bearing her ill temper" (p.
Gandhi's credo of non-violence, which Manilal embraced, left him increasingly in the political wilderness because he was unsure how to react as the Congress Alliance moved towards confrontation with the apartheid government.

 archive: Oh what a lovely sport!
Harilal-kaka’s unhappy yet vigorous life is effectively conveyed in Mahatma versus Gandhi, though his grandchildren, I know, were pained by the false if dramatic statement early in the play that he was alone and untended when dying in Bombay.
Blaming Gandhi for his political role in the Thirties and Forties, Patrick French, a young British writer, has also come up with the breezy comment that “Gandhi was emotionally and spiritually troubled whereas the Dalai Lama has a very high spiritual realisation”.
We should, I suppose, be shocked that Gandhi was often emotionally and spiritually burdened, though it is also true that again and again his faith and prayers enabled him to bear his burdens.
