Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Gandhi is resonsible for creating the idea of nonviolent noncooperation which freed India from oppression from Britain and motivated many great leaders into action.  Among the people Gandhi has influenced is Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama.  Martin Luther King Jr. began the civil rights movement in the United States, creating equal rights for all people in the United States and integrating the country.  He used policies of nonviolence, including marching and protests.  Nelson Mandela, anti-apartheid activist and former president of South Africa was also influenced by Gandhi.  Gandhi essentially brought the idea of peace and nonviolence into greater light for the rest of the world and spurred a series of equal rights activists.
