Gandhi’s Vision for Indian Society
This paper is concerned with an eighteen month period of Indian history in which Mohandas Gandhi’s view on religion, access to temples and the untouchables in Hindu religion expressed through articles, letters and speeches. In this paper, the religious aspect of Gandhi’s vision is discussed in an attempt to show how he mobilised Indian society for a common cause. In continuance of above object, this paper will also support the argument that Gandhi mobilised using traditional Hindu rhetoric, which is familiar to Indians. The attempt shows that although Gandhi had mobilised Indians in previous campaigns together with the Indian National Congress, a great part of his mobilisation skills lay in his personal importance and rhetoric. As a continuance of this it is also shown through the information available that Gandhi‘s methods of mobilisation caused several different responses among the active participants.
