    M. K. GANDHI LEFT INDIA FOR SOUTH AFRICA IN APRIL 1893. HE WENT THERE FOR A PURELY PROFESSIONAL REASON & HAD NO IDEA OF THE PREVIOUS HISTORY OF THE INDIAN EMIGRANTS. BUT DURING THE VERY FIRST YEAR HE WAS A WITNESS TO THE VICTIMS OF UNJUST HUMILIATON & THE SOCIAL REPRESSION OF ALL INDIANS IN SOUTH AFRICA, ESPECIALLY THE DESPERATE CONDITIONS OF THOSE WHO WENT AS LABOURERS ON A SYSTEM EQUIVALENT TO LEGALIZED SLAVERY. ALL THIS MADE A DEEP AND LASTING IMPRESSION ON GANDHI. AS EVENTS DEVELOPED, GANDHI HAD NO OPTION BUT TO PLUNGE INTO A LONG DRAWN STRUGGLE AGAINST INJUSTICE. HE LED THE GREAT SATYAGRAHA STRUGGLE WHICH CLOSED AFTER EIGHT YEARS (1906-1914). THE TERM SATYAGRAHA - A WAR WITHOUT VIOLENCE WAS COINED. HE RETURNED TO INDIA NOT AS M. K. GANDHI BUT AS MAHATMA, A GREAT SOUL - THE MAN WHO GAVE HIS ENTIRE LIFE TO FREE HIS COUNTRY FROM FOREIGN RULE WITHOUT FIRING A SINGLE SHOT FROM A GUN. THE MAKING OF THE MAHATMA IS M. K. GANDHI'S EARLY STORY OF HIS EXPERIMENTS WITH TRUTH, WHICH GAVE TO MANKIND A NEW WEAPON OF LIBERTY, THE MOST CIVILIZED & HUMANE. THE PROCESS OF TRANSFORMATION FROM GANDHI, THE MAN TO GANDHI, THE MAHATMA IS AS EXCITING AS SOUL-SEARCHING AND THATS WHAT THE MAKING OF THE MAHATMA IS ALL ABOUT.
