Why Black People Respect Mahatma Gandhi Too Much?

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in Porbandar, India to a Hindu family on 2 October 1869. He was the child of Karamchand Gandhi Putlibai. He got his early schooling near Rajkot, where his father served as the adviser. At the age of 13, Gandhi was married to Kasturba. Due to his continuous efforts and struggle for the independence of the nation, people address him as the father of the nation or Mahatma Gandhi.

Mahatma Gandhi went to England in the year 1888 to get a degree in law. He spent three years in London and completed his degree at the Inner Temple. Only after 1 year of his enrolment in High Court of London, he left for India. Later he represented an Indian business firm situated in the Transvaal, South Africa.

Gandhi in South Africa

Mahatma Gandhi visited Durban in 1893 to serve as legal counsel to a merchant Dada Abdulla. The first encounter of discrimination faced by him was when he was traveling through a train from Pretoria with a first class ticket. He was pushed out off the train by force simply because non-white was not allowed in the first class compartment.

When Gandhi opposes this, he was pushed out from the train with his luggage thrown away. It was the movement when he faced the dilemma whether he should return to India or fight for this injustice with colored people. He realized that it his duty to fight for this cause as the next day journey was even more humiliating for him.

He was made to sit with the coachman on the box outside separating him from the white passengers inside the train. On this day, he was physically assaulted by the conductor of the train as Mahatma Gandhi refused to give him his seat.

Within a month of his arrival, Mahatma Gandhi made his first public speech making truthfulness and non-violence the key perspectives of his fight against injustice. The meeting was organized to make Indian residents oppose the discrimination done with them.

South Africa, at that moment, was a growing national, ruled by white authorities in the majority. The discrimination against the Indians is similar to other non-white people of the county. Mahatma Gandhi’s fight against colour based discrimination makes him a beloved leader by Indian and other citizens of the country who are willing for equality.

By 1896, Mahatma Gandhi has become a political leader in South Africa fighting against the injustice of his policy of non-violence. This year only, he took a trip to India to ignite a protest campaign on behalf of Indians in South Africa. His mission caused the great uproar in India and hurt the British authorities in England and Natal badly. Gandhi’s efforts had pressurized the British Government enough to block the Franchise Bill in an unprecedented move.

The introduction of Transvaal Asiatic Law Amendment Ordinance forces all Indians in the Transvaal to carry an authorization document along with other coercive measures. Mahatma Gandhi protests against this act with 3,000 Indians in the year 1906 which give birth to his whistleblowing ‘satyagraha’ campaign.

The Indian community followed Gandhi’s plan and fought against the Act for a period of over six years in which, hundreds of Indians were brutally suppressed and put into jail because they were following non-violent forms of resistance.

Mahatma Gandhi led another march with mine workers in 1913 to protest against the tax imposed on formerly indentured laborers and he was arrested. You can check all about in Mahatma Gandhi biography.  As soon as he got the bail, he joined the movement again without afraid of being arrested. His dedication and courage to continue the path of non-violence make the officials drop the Indian Relief Bill.

Success Story Of College Dropout Turakhia Brothers

India is a country or miracles, it is full of people who will surprise you in unknown ways. As the country is trying had to bridge the gap between being a developing and developed country, we expect its people to come up with extraordinary ideas to help the economy. And here we are with yet another extraordinary story that will almost blow your mind. Bhavin Turakhia and Divyank Turakhia, two college drop-out brothers, who managed to built business empires. Yes, its “empires” because they established not just one but 11 companies together.

Read the whole story of the Turakhia brothers who have no chills when it comes to business.

Mumbai based Turakhia brothers have always had it in their mind to do something big even when they were just teenagers. It seems they were gifted with genius minds, as they joined B.com program but they used to skip college in order to learn to code.

Divyank Turkhia loved to code so much that he soon built his first game with his brother that would monitor the price of the stock exchange. They never used to really attend college and would rather stay home, doing their own inventions.

Soon enough they started their first company Directi together in 1998, with the investment of 25,000 which they borrowed from their father. When the first company was found, Bhavin was 18 and Divyank was merely 16 years old. Directi is a web hosting company that provides website domains and internet related services to other companies.

And it was just the beginning, they started with one and ended up 11 companies under the banner Directi. They made big money out of them and even bigger when they decided to sell five companies.

In 2014 they sold four of their companies to US-based web hosting company Endurance International Group for $160 million. After selling Reseller Club, Logic Boxes, Bigrock and Webhosting(dot)info it took them four more years to sell the other one called Media(dot)net.

They sold Media(dot)net to a Chinese company for $900 million, this was the biggest ad-tech deal ever.

In 2016, Divyank and Bhavin were listed by the Forbes magazine under the list of India’s Richest persons. Not only that they were awarded as Young Global Leaders by World Economic Forum in 2011. Also, Bharti Foundation presented them with Bharti Entrepreneur of the Year, in 2005.

Turakhia brothers have proved that passion gets you to the highest dream, only if it is combined with dedication. They started at a very young age and made a name and money globally. Today, Bhavin is running four companies: Ringo Software, Zeta, Radix and Flock, and Directi have over 1000 employees and 10 million customers globally.

Talking about their wealth, both have them properties worth 10,000 crores each. They made a huge name for themselves in the tech world. We hope they keep flourishing and inspiring young Indians the same way. They are both a testimony of the saying that ‘where there is will there is a way’.
