Force Born of Truth: Mohandas Gandhi and the Salt March, The


List Price: 38.60

On April 6, 1930, Mohandas Gandhi stood on the coast of the Arabian Sea in western India. He and his followers had walked 241 miles  to reach this place. Now, at the end of their long journey, Gandhi made a simple gesture marking the beginning of a revolution: he reached down, grabbed a clump of sea salt, and raised it overhead. This signaled to all Indians to embark on a course of civil disobedience―making and selling their own salt.

At this time, India had been ruled by the British Empire for more than 200 years. The British had taken control of India’s main industries, including its highly profitable salt manufacturing process. By law, Indians were not allowed to produce their own salt―or to even pick up a lump of sea salt. Everyone in India, no matter how poor, paid a salt tax to the British government.
