Summary
Highlights events in the life of Mohandas K. Gandhi between 1930 and 1948 and recounts his role in the struggle to free India from British colonialism. Treats his philosophy of passive resistance and non-violence, and depicts the conflicts between British and Indians, and Hindus and Moslems before and after British withdrawal.  The events of the campaign of civil disobedience and the series of conferences and incarcerations of Gandhi are reviewed. The views of British officials during this period are also presented. The partition of India and the establishment of dominion status for India and Pakistan are explained. Gandhi's pleas for unity and brotherhood during his last days and his assassination in 1948 are presented. Concluding scenes present his funeral pyre and an eulogy to Gandhi.
