Pretoria Highlights

In 1894 Gandhi helped found the Natal Indian Congress, to unify local Indians into a political force, and became the first secretary.  In September of the same year, Gandhi became the first Indian to be enrolled as an Advocate of the Supreme Court of Natal.  Gandhi felt firsthand what it was like to be discriminated upon, he struggled to find a hotel in Johannesburg and the Grand National Hotel would not allow him to eat in hotel dining room.  The Central Baptist Church turned Gandhi away and would not let him enter a white church.

Arun Gandhi Pietermartizburg Railway Station Address June 7, 2015

Another spot on address by Arun Gandhi in Piertermaritzburg during the Satyagraha Tour of South Africa. He talks about the purpose of the Gandhi Legacy Tour in South Africa.   He continues on with: “The thing that touches me most about my grandfather, is the statement that he made just a month or so before his assassination, when a journalist asked him, what do you think is going to happen after your passing to your philosophy?  And he made a very prophetic remark when he said, “the people will follow me in life, worship me in death, but not make my cause their cause.”  That unfortunately, is the tragedy with not just my grandfather, but for all the...
