What do you wish India should have

Be the change you want in this world for yourself

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (called Mahatma Gandhi; born October 2, 1869 in Porbandar, Gujarat, † January 30, 1948 in New Delhi, Delhi) was an Indian lawyer, resistance fighter, revolutionary, publicist, moral teacher, ascetic and pacifist.
Gandhi was the political and spiritual leader of the Indian independence movement in the 20th century, which in 1947 brought about the end of British colonial rule over India with non-violent resistance, civil disobedience and hunger strikes.

He had previously campaigned against racial segregation and for equality for Indians in South Africa. (Wikipedia)

Quotes from Mahatma Gandhi:

Be the change you want in this world for yourself.

Once the spirit of exploitation is defeated, armament will be found to be an unbearable burden. Real disarmament can only come about when the peoples of the world stop exploiting one another.

The world has enough for everyone's needs, but not everyone's greed.

An eye for an eye - and the whole world will be blind.

You and I we are one. I can not hurt you without hurting myself.

I am committed to the truth as I know it every day, and not to permanence.

Strength does not arise from physical strength, but from an indomitable will.

The religions are different paths that lead to the same point. What does it matter that we go different ways if we only achieve the same goal?

God is the sum of all living things. If we are not God, we are part of God, just as even the smallest drop of water is part of the ocean.

What is belief worth if it is not put into practice?

To this day, Mahatma Gandhi is the model for nonviolent political action that can make a difference.
With his strategy of non-violence, Gandhi launched many actions - decisive steps in the fight against the colonial power of Great Britain.
He drew strength from his faith, which he repeatedly reconsidered and redefined.
Beliefs of different religions flowed into his attitude, which was the basis for his non-violent resistance.
His consistent but always peaceful struggle ushered in the independence of his country.
