To most people who have read about this man, he was a great person who taught the world that peace and non-violence could be used as weapons to humble the mighty opressors. Surely, many independence and civil rights movements other than the Indian one, inspired by his ideals have been highly successful.
But given the extendt of violence and terrorism in the world today, all in the name of certain struggles, do you think Gandhi's message has been lost? Or is it that people resort to violent acts as they get the message across in a better (more visible) way ?
