Episode 1 of 3
World celebrities such as Martin Luther King and the Dalai Lama, but also countless other peace activists, followed in the footsteps of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (1869-1948). The undisputed “father of the Indian nation” is best known today for his principle of strict non-violence, but had other, less well-known sides to his personality. This includes the influences on his thinking as well as his relationship with his wife or his controversial attitude to racial problems. The three-part documentary sheds light on Gandhi's life like no other television portrait before - from the beginning of his social engagement as a lawyer to his move into politics to his formative role in India's struggle for independence.
In the first episode, presenter and journalist Mishal Husain follows in the footsteps of Gandhi's beginnings in India until the end of his controversial work in South Africa. In doing so, she confronts Gandhi's image as the “Indian Messiah‘ ”with accusations of racism and hypocrisy that he was exposed to during this time. With this in mind, Mishal also explores the crucial role the City of London played in the development of Gandhi's personality.
