Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was an Indian lawyer, anti-colonial nationalist, and political ethicist, who employed nonviolent resistance to lead the successful campaign for India's independence from British Rule, and in turn inspire movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. The honorific Mahātmā (Sanskrit: ''high-souled'', ''venerable''), first applied to him in 1914 in South Africa, is now used throughout the world.
We come from 34 countries, many of which are rarely represented in a startup.
