Great Britain, at the time, was a ruthless country that wouldn’t take second place because they controlled many countries. India is widely known for being controlled by them because India is such a big country, but nobody said anything about it, but nothing happened until Gandhi attempted to make something happen.

That’s what I am going to prove, why India couldn’t be here today without Gandhi doing what he did. Gandhi, in my belief, is not recognized for doing what he rightfully did for this country.
