  3. 3. Early Years  Mahatma Gandhi was born October 2, 1869. He lived with is mother Putlibai Gandhi and his father Karamchand Gandhi. He was raised in Kathiawar Peninsula which is now part of the state of Gujarat. Gandhi went to Alfred High School and latter on studied law in University College in London. Gandhi’s father died when he was only three years old although his mother past away when he was 75; four years before he was assassinated.
  4. 4. Two sides  still today India was split when Gandhi was alive and into two main kinds of realign, The Muslims and the Hindus. these people have been fighting over land and religion for a long time with countless attacks and protests. Gandhi's dream was for these two people to live in harmony. Unfortunately there was to much tension for them to see this and after his death this only seemed to get worse. Conflict still occurs in India today between the Muslims and Hindus.
  5. 5. Famous quotes thoughts. What he thinks, he  “A man is but the product of his be comes.“ What Gandhi was trying to say when he said this is that if you think and believe that you can do something then that makes you more capable to doing it even though you might not have had the ability before.  “An eye for a eye makes the whole world blind” What Gandhi means by saying this is if with try to get revenge then we are taking are eyes off the problem instead of being the stronger person and doing the right thing; forgiving.
  6. 6. Assassination 1948 Mahatma Gandhi was At 5:17 PM on 30 January shot dead by Nathuram Godse. Gandhi was on his way to address a prayer meeting when he was shot three times. The reason that Godse shot Gandhi was because he had been kind and gentle to Pakistan government and people. So a extremist Hindu group that Godse had contacts with hired him and his co-conspirator Narayan Apte to silence Gandhi. Nathuram Godse and Narayan Apte where executed on November 15, 1949. This is the gun that Gandhi was shot with. It is a M9 9 mm Beretta Pistol
  7. 7. Funeral  Gandhi was cremated by Hindu tradition. His ashes were poured into urns that were then sent across India for various different ceremony's. the urns were mostly opened on the Sangam at Allahabad on February 12, 1948. Although some where secretly taken away and spread out across the countries and even the world. This is a Memorial where Gandhi was assassinated
  8. 8. Modern India  Today despite Gandhi’s lessens India is still torn in brutal conflict between the Hindis and the Muslims. Also in the neighboring countries of Pakistan and Bangladesh tension builds over the religion beliefs. If you did not know that Pakistan was once part of India but separated due the religion problem. India’s flag Pakistan flag
  9. 9. India's government  by The country of India is run Manmohan Singh and in the ways of a Federal government. This means that it is a government with strong central powers such as Canada. Although efforts had been made by the Country to stop the violence there are still several extremist That believe strongly in the separation and existence of certain religions and groups.

  10. 10. Conclusion  Over all Gandhi did not just change his home country of India. He also changed the worlds perspective on war and peace by making a difference without violence. Next Gandhi gave some of India's people a new look on religion. Although Gandhi’s best efforts to stop violence failed I sometimes wonder what would have happened if he had stayed alive for another 5 or 10 years.
  11. 11. Self Reflection  I think that I could defiantly improve on my time management. When we were first introduced to the project I hardly did a thing so as a consequence I had to work a lot during the winter break. Also I think that I should have done a better job with keeping track of my noodle tools or Bibliography. Although I could have improved in a lot of things I think that I did a good job getting done on time.
