Gandhi and South Africa – Principles and Politics.


On Pietermaritzburg station in 1893, a young Indian lawyer, newly arrived in South Africa, was ejected from a train to Pretoria for insisting on his right to travel first-class. It was to the cold night hours spent in the waiting-room that Gandhi himself traced the genesis of his great resolve to fight injustice by non violent means. Crucial as this episode was, it was but one of the manifold influences which shaped the Gandhi-to-be during his sojourn in South Africa. The Mahatma’s moral vision, of a way to resolve conflict and right injustice without resorting to violence.
