India was blessed to have a person like Mahatma Gandhi leading the independence movement of India in a way not seen before. Through non violence and passive resistance, he overcame the British and forced them to leave the country. Indian independence proved to be the beginning of the end of the British Empire and the power it once possessed. Indian independence movement however goes back before that and notable being the 1857 war of independence which the British put as a sepoy mutiny. Thereafter it was only after the turn of the century and the coming of Mahatma Gandhi did we see intensity in the independence movement. My question is, what if we didnt have Mahatma Gandhi at all in the independence movement. How would the independence movement shaped up. We had braves like Subhash Chandra Bose who thought that the British had to be fought. Others fell in line with Gandhijis thinking. If Gandhiji was not there, what was the thinking of these people?
