Description
Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, named Mahatma Gandhi; * 2 October 1869 in Porbandar, Gujarat; † January 30, 1948 in New Delhi, Delhi was an Indian lawyer, resistance fighter, revolutionary, publicist, moralist, ascetic and pacifist.



On January 30, 1948, the 78-year-old Gandhi was shot by the fanatical, nationalist Hindu Nathuram Godse, who had planned an assassination attempt on Gandhi ten days earlier as a member of a seventh group.



After the cremation, Gandhi's ashes were scattered in the Ganges. In New Delhi is the Kenotaph (Sheingrab) Raj Ghat in his honor. Parts of the ashes were also scattered in Pushkar Lake near Ajmer and Nakki Lake near Mount Abu; A Gandhi ghat was built on each side of the river.
