"I think of him as a huge pervasive influence in my life from the time that I was born Indians used to cool, their first prime minister channel on coll-. But to the writer, nine Taras ago that was what he was the beloved older brother of mother, the great, engine nationalist, an intellectual fun loving charming, and one of the pillars of her life, I would say that everything that I have ever written was inspired by him and my whole upbringing and values when spied by him. And there was the feeling that one had long anticipated this terrible moment when he would not be there and apart from one's own great sorrow, and there was also the fear, where India would go as it were to allow narrow became the prime minister of independent India, when the British left in nineteen forty seven and remained. Prime minister until the day he died sixteen years later as things turned out nine tower and many others. Fears would not be realized often Aries death was a smooth transition of power nine tower believes that was ju to the system of secular democracy that the nationalist movement and her, uncle had given India disregarding the doubts and fears of many of his countrymen of the whole world that in our conditions such thing was not possible. He made it possible used to be in parliament punch million dollars every day at eleven AM used to be the host session was narrows private secretary vanilla important debates. Come it doesn't matter, whether it belonged to any other ministry, he would be personally present, and he would intervene. He will take decisions on the spot. Sometimes you'll find that the opposition's viewpoint was correct. He would agree to the opposition's. We find out of the house, but use a great man. He had an idea, but the years of government would not easy with independence came politician, and a riot of bloodletting, as Hindu kill Muslim, and Muslim killed Hindu nine tower remembers coming home from America's shortly after independence in the autumn of nineteen forty seven and being met, not with celebrations, but with grief. The horrors of were very much around us because the grounds were full of refugees daily looked bleak and drab and dark and sad, nine towers father had died in prison while she was in America. Her mother had been appointed. India's first Basset to Moscow so nine tower went to live without angst in the modest house at seventeen York road in Delhi, when narrow continue to live, even what he was prime minister. He worked late into the night. I think I must have been extremely stupid to try and you know persuade him. To go to bed to get up and see the midnight. And I go to study, and then he would say, yes, I'm going to bed very soon. I just have to get through these papers. He was hugely hugely burdened and carrying on with the kind of momentum and energy that only great passion and commitment can arouse in anyone. And then a few months later came the assassination of know who's mental Mahatma Gandhi, it was narrow who announced to a stunned nation. The Gandhi was dead. Comrades. The light has gone out around lives and darkness everywhere. I do not hard was the loss of Gandhi, uncle irreparable irreparable, because that was a time when he felt he needed his advice more than ever before. It'd been Gandhi, who had inspired the young privileged English educated. Lawyer to join the Indian National Congress in nineteen nineteen to fight the engine autonomy in the decades that followed narrow and his sister, and brother in law, nine hours, parents were constantly in and out of British jails nine tower recalls how the first time the police came to arrest. Her father, her mother sweetened, the blow by giving her and her sisters chocolate cake. The chocolate cake was so that we would realize that this is an occasion, not for sorrow but for pride then explaining to us. We were very little at the time that we should consider ourselves soldiers in the struggle as they said, then above all we were not to cry in front of the. Police. And in fact, that was something we remembered all our childhood so that very often had to rush off after the arrest and cry in the bathroom with the door closed that must have been very difficult time with the child. In a way. We knew nothing else, you know, to us, the AB normal had become normal, then, of course you father and your uncle at one time. She shared a sound isn't they your father later died in prison. How did you cope? Did he ever talk about that time? He wrote books, wonderful books book gold glimpses of world history, for example, which, you know, at that time, the entire world, and everything that happened was interpreted through western eyes. So writing was then a form of resistance to this state of affairs. It was like Brooklyn, I'm here too. And this is what I think, and never wrote is book glimpses of world history. From his and an Indian and Asian point of view, which was quite revolutionary at the time. And of course, he was also known for having a great sense of humor. Was great sense of fun, wonderful. He had a wonderful sense of humor and the great innocence about him as a character. He was transparent human being somebody who had nothing to hide as it were. He would tip us upside down in front of my parents and their guests. And you know, think nothing of causing as it were among us, and you must have dorm children. We did we absolutely adored him. The news spread.

India's Prime Minister Modi headed for landslide victory: what it means for India

"You, Robin will- India's prime minister Narendra Modi and his party are celebrating today after winning. Landslide victory. Today's news sent India's stock market soaring. And it follows six weeks of voting in the world's largest democracy. Joining us now is the BBC's REI. She's in Delhi divvy Narendra Modi was not on the ballot. But this election was a referendum on his leadership, so far and it seems like a pretty big vote of confidence in him. Indeed. We haven't seen a body comeback to power in India with this kind of mandate. He has overdone him said from the last time the numbers have gone up is still waiting for the final results. But the tally that's coming up is pretty clear and the whole election was fought in his name. Not even in his body's name every candidate in every constituency spoken in bed rallies, about Mr. moldy? So it was very clear to the water that your vote is not for the member of parliament, representing your constituency, but for Narendra Modi and it is to represent the whole country. So help us understand how voters. Did what they did here. Because since Modi has been prime minister there's been a farm crisis. There's been problems with unemployment, and growing religious divides, when Mr. moody has done an extremely successful communication campaign, and he has explained to the people that he is the kind of leader they need, because he can take decisions when they needed the strikes, that will made into Pakistan, right off to a terror attack onto a security forces forty-one security, forces were killed in the state of Cushman just before the elections was shown, as an example of what how countries should respond, especially to Pakistan with a country with whom we've had changed since for a really really long time. And we fought a couple of wars as well, his whole his party's whole attitude towards the Hindu-majority was another strong signal that went out to the public that the Hindu-majority is better off in the governance of Mr. moody, and his body. Not the secular congress party, which. Ruled the country for many decades. And even today when I went out to speak to people to find out how they were reacting to the government's re election, this is exactly what they were looking forward to this ad now, the Hindus will feel that they're not being discriminated. And what about the Muslim minority? Well, the Muslim minority of has seen a lot of, you know, there's been a lot of fear that the Muslim minority has experienced seen it among spears amongst educated, upper class, beatha Rian tracked with. We've also seen it in areas where mob, lynchings have happened people have been lynched for carrying transporting cows because cows are considered sacred in Hindu religion, and even people who are carrying cows of a slaughter, which is legally permitted were targeted. So the has been a sense of feel and a lot of people on Twitter today, for example have been talking about how going forward, the minorities will have to be subservient in a do the majority to live in harmony. But of course, the BJP potty denies all of that, and they say that, if you look at policies when the implement them we do not discriminate on the basis of religion, and that is what matters at the end of the day, where do these results Lee. Leave. Rahul Ghandi's party, the Indian National Congress. Well, it's a huge defeat for him. He just came in address the press a little while back, and he said he humbly accepts it because that is the people's worked, and he was asked about his leadership, and he said, that's something that the party will decide so lots of questions for mister gone to answer. And also, to reinvent because the congress if this is not a wakeup call for it to sort of strategize its messaging. It's the body workers and what it stands full. We don't know when it will be one more thing. What is the relationship between India and the United States like, and what is it likely to be like, with Narendra Modi staying in power? Well, the relationship has been pretty good. And Mr. moody has been credited with the, you know, refurbishing all his relationships across the world. He's seen to be someone who's been very successful with his foreign policy. He's made visits to the. United states. There's a strong community Indian community that that's supports him. And of course between him. And President Trump, of course, there seems to be more points of agreement than disagreement. Both of them have a very nation. I kind of agenda, not to say that the congress party here did not. But Mr. moody has also spoken about stopping immigration into the country. They're talking about bringing a citizenship Bill, which weeds out people who are not citizens and illegally. They've come into the country. So there, lots of common ground. And of course, the Pakistan being a common enemy China, of course being a common trade challenge to deal with. I think going forward, this is going to be probably good for both leaders, whether it's going to be good for both countries. Of course, is a question that icon onto at the

"India votes are being counted today after elections that lasted six weeks. NPR's Lauren fair, that's been following it and joins us from Mumbai, Lauren. Thanks for being here. You're welcome. Thanks for having made so vote counting still underway, obviously. But results showing Mody is running away with this thing, right? It looks like it. Yeah. Prime minister Narendra Modi's party looks like it will have enough seats in parliament to govern. It may not even have to form a coalition to do, so it may have an obsolete majority in parliament. The party is called the Bhartiya Janata Party or BJP it won a historic landslide in two thousand fourteen and it looks like they've just done it again. The math is looking pretty impossible for the main opposition party, the Indian National Congress. The leader of that party, Rahul Gandhi. He's from this family diner. Nesty. That's produced three. Indian prime minister. He may actually lose his seat in the family hometown. That would be pretty symbolic. The votes are still being counted there. But that's one of the big races that we're following. Why did it take six weeks? It takes that long. This is the world's biggest democracy. Nine hundred million eligible voters from tropical islands in the Indian Ocean to the Himalayan mountains and the law says that no Indian should have to walk more than about a mile and a quarter ties to ballot. So as a result, you've got more than a million polling stations that had to be set up across this vast country and the voting was held in, in seven stages in different places around the country at different times. So sounds like Mody has already declared victory. Has he spoken yet? So human tweeting actually we're expecting Mody to come out at some point and give a victory speech, but ballots are still being counted. So for right now it's his statements been on Twitter, and here's what he wrote he said, quote together, we prosper together, we will build a strong and inclusive, India and the key word there is inclusive because this campaign has been really divisive Modi's, Hindu nationalist parties being accused of using hate speech and fear as a campaign tactic. And so one of the challenges going forward will be to heal the country and make all Indians feel like they're part of India and we'll be watching a specially for any outreach from Modi's party to India's Muslims. There have been a lot of attacks on Muslims here by supporters of Modi's, Hindu nationalist party. So I mean did he talk about that in the campaign? Or is that just his message now that he's won the talk about healing these divisions? So moody was elected five years ago on, on the economy, so on economic promises, he promised to streamline this notorious Indian bureaucracy cut corruption. Create jobs. India's economy is booming. It's actually one of the fastest growing economies in the world. But unemployment is stuck at this four decade high. And so Moody's government has struggled to create jobs. But these tens of millions of young Indians joining the workforce each year and to his campaign instead of focusing on the economy, which some of the promises he made five years ago, we didn't really deliver on his campaign, sort of pivoted to these social and religious issues, instead, Hindu nationalism. So his party's called for the construction of a Hindu temple in a place where a mosque was torn down, and Wilson's were killed his, his campaign, also featured, tough talk against Pakistan, Pakistan based militants have attacked India and actually today possibly in. A message to Mody Pakistan has just test fired a ballistic missile. Here's Laura prayer reporting on the election results in India Narendra Modi appears to have secured victory. Lauren, thanks. You're welcome. Officials at the Trump administration have signaled the next way that they may pressure China. The New York Times reports the US is considering putting a Chinese tech company on a blacklist if that happens the move would deny US computer chips and other technology to the video surveillance, firm, hick vision, which would join the giant Telekom maker, Weiwei on that blacklist, NPR's, rob Schmitz is in Shanghai either up. Good morning, Steve. What kind of video surveillance does hick nation do? Well, hick vision specializes, especially in facial recognition, so anything that would identify people. And it's one of world's largest manufacturers of video surveillance equipment that stuff all over China now. Right at airports near the place everywhere. Yeah. And you so it's collecting tons of data and it's worth. Seven billion dollars. It has thirty thousand employees. It's so successful because one of its largest clients, is the Chinese government as we mentioned, China has spent hundreds of billions of dollars on domestic surveillance, in, in recent years, especially in regions like Xinjiang where hundreds of thousands of Muslims are being detained for extremist thoughts. I spoke to Human Rights, Watch my Awan about the Trump administration's potential crackdown on hick vision. And here's what she said about it. I think it would be really good news, because I think it could significantly make it at least temporarily difficult for the Chinese government in this Valence project for the record. You're Steve hick vision has issued a statement to the media saying it's not aware of how it's crimen is used inside of China, but one says the company isn't being honest about that because it has advertisements on its own website boasting of its partnership with Chinese police. And of course, it's hard to hard not to notice the video surveillance technology. It's obvious Ryan. I just want to observe row. This seems to bring together several of the things that make Americans uneasy about China. It's all here that the growing Chinese economy. The use of US technology and a thorough -tarian government, keeping an eye on people, including you when you've been going around China doing your reporting, what, what is the what of those various concerns? What is really motivating the US here as best you can tell. Yeah. I mean, I'm probably in hick visions database, I would imagine I think I think many observers here suspect that this is coming from a desire to inflict economic harm on China, rather than out of a desire to help a repress group in Xinjiang, and it's possible that could be both. You know, the Trump administration is always assorted that China poses an economic technological geopolitical threat, and that includes a threat to human rights outside of China hick vision, not only sells it's a enabled cameras to China's government, but it's also selling them to thorny -tarian governments around the world that they can keep tabs on their populations and members of. The Trump administration namely secretary of state. Mike Pompeo have expressed concerns about this, and you're saying, basically that they are exporting in our welcome surveillance system to other countries briefly, how does China respond. Well, he vision is is in trouble. It's listed on the Shenzhen exchange. It stock is taking Beijing weighed in today, saying, all of Washington sections are unilaterally escalating the trade dispute and dragging down the world economy. Okay. Rob. Thanks very much really appreciate it. Thanks.

"His body was coupled with the national flag and in the lynchings that happened later, one of the union ministers, and moody, government is civil aviation minister on all those people who are lynching Muslims in the name of consuming beef. No beef is banned in India. So there are rumors that spread and what satisfied on Facebook that, you know, there's a Muslim family, which is consuming beef, and then a Ahmad gatherers and that. Doc, Muslims on basis of this Zuma. So, and then it's just nothing that the government has done to stop this menace of lynching just about three weeks ago. A Muslim man was Lynch in the northeastern tier of a Sam. And instead of instead of arresting the accused the police the cops arrested the man who was lynched and, and took them into detention. So that's the state of law and auto, which is why the lynchings continue, total impunity. It's I mean it sounds like complete impunity. It is complete impunity, which is why the lynchings are increasing in frequency almost every month. The heat crime data in India said that the heat crimes against Muslims have increased by ninety percent since Mr. moody, as you baba in two thousand fourteen. So you're a journalist and you're writing about all of this, but you are also a Muslim yourself. What's your experience been like? Right. Well at my country, of course, my persecution has not just been because I've been a critic of the ruling dispensation, and I've been doing investigations of the government, it's also because an outspoken Muslim woman. So there's misogyny, of course and of course, the fact that how dare Muslim woman speak, so yes, an eastern time each time write something on Twitter. Government officials themselves off calling jihadi Jane on social media. I mean, every investigation that I do is seen from the prism of my feet about being a Muslim and not just as journalists, I'm not my work by a majority of the country and sub getting judged as a Muslim and not as journalists to that's a pretty commend. You face my recent column in Washington Post one of the a lot of. A lot of hate was spread in India after the Washington Post piece got published saying that I was a Muslim, who was trying to defame India unto national platforms. So that's what it is for. Privileged muslims. Like me, you can understand what this life to be a lower middle dozen Muslim, a common Muslim in today's day Asian India, I mentioned that Muslims make up fourteen percent of the population in India and yet they have just four percent. Representation in parliament. It's the lowest it's been in decades. Is there no opposition party? That is standing up to this violence or any sort of political movement. That it's trying to address this India has one nine hundred million Muslims and the ruling party did not have a single Muslim parliamentarian from the government from the poppy that represented the Indian Muslims in the parliament and the opposition party. The chief opposition party. The congress itself has been accused of apathy towards Muslims even even the tally of the Congo Muslim candidates in the Congress's abyss. Really low and is the regional body called the eight I am. I am which is a regional body, led by Muslim leader. But it does not enjoy the kind of popularity that the Indian National Congress led by Gandhi Gandhi family does, but unfortunately, the Gandhi founding to, has toned a blind eye to the concern of Muslims in India, and so Muslims. Right now, crushed between a majority even BJP on the liberal congress..

"Department of politics and international studies at SaaS university of she specializes in South Asian politics. Thank you very much coming in to save Ning. Let's start with the return of a political dynasty. Yes. Absolutely. This is the story. The news Priyanka Gandhi the daughter of HOGAN, the president of the Indian National Congress and the next member of the narrow Gandhi family to enter officially politics. She's being appointed congress general secretary in charge of polish Easter one of the most important states for the next general elections. So it is expected that her appointment actually, it's expensive is as ready governor is the not the congress party ahead of this very import. Elections. Now, the been all sorts of stories of different members of the Gandhi family, some of invented terribly how how far do we feel ambition extends in this case? That's a very good question. The. The expectations are high. Priyanka Gandhi has been in politics before has campaigned for her mother before she has been likened to Indira, Gandhi, our grandmother. So she's been said that she's a natural politician. She's a natural campaigner who gunned is the congress party on the Rojo Godse brothers leadership recently has. Obtain some very positive results of the journal the state election. So it is expected perhaps a she will bring some positive changes to the prospects of the party. Now, the the row of allying women into a temple back in the headline is back in the headlines has been going on since for a few months now since the supreme court has lifted the ban on the entering of the temple by may street in age women women in mystery age two ladies manage to enter the sanctum sanctorum of the temple and the middle of the night. Huge revolts and Protestant sued big strike on thirty January and. One of these ladies, the news of today's as one of this lady has been banned from her own home from entering your own home. And she's now under police surveillance. Protection protection? Yes. Which says you the position that the authorities are ended on the on the one hand that love particularly international pressure to modernize standards and attitudes. The many people outside of these communities. Find inexplicable in archaic, but you bump up against a lot of resistance from this communities themselves from resistance from communities themselves resistance from other women. So there's not hasn't been complete support from the whole communities women community to this because precisely this is seen as western mordernization pushing against traditions interference on the state of the smart from that car staunching that women would be not leading position to this. But there will be a significant proportion of women within those communities would agree shouldn't be allowed into a temple. Yeah. And in fact, the the reason why this lady was not allowed to go back home as process because her mother-in-law seems that physically attacked her and stopped from entering home. Also, remember, there's also political angle to this. There is the the state in which this temple where the temple is is state under. There's been off for many years ruled by communist party, the BJP has made some entrance now in the in the region, and is riding the wave of this protest against the modernisation that there's certain temple practices, and again, this has to be seen with the elections coming up in mind now with with with a mind to modernisation and controversy does an Indian produced documentary on tabu that's got an Oscar nomination. Yeah. Yeah. This is quite. A good story come in from an Indian produces not strictly an Indian film. But it is the only the closed Oscar nomination for India. And it is it is it is a quirky film about in the fighting against the tabu administration in two ways on the one hand it deals with period poverty. The in women many women in India cannot afford to buy sanitary pads and this leads to in a unhealthy practices that can heal in. Our can also lead to diseases and severe complications. And also presence young ladies and young women dropping out of school because of the tabu of mistreating. There's also other taboos about you know, what we can do can do when mystery in so this this little short film. Short from has in dealing with very important issues. It's picked up this this Oscar nomination. Is there any sense of how it's gone down in India itself?.

"Does cryptos people were crying and shouting echoed up and looked at hen lying, there bleeding such confusion. No, one knew what to do his killers have never been brought to Justice protected by an amnesty law after the nineteen Ninety-two peace agreement. I spoke to the American journalist, gene, Palumbo insult Salvador. It's mainly an atmosphere of great joy in of celebration. They're having to major celebrations tonight, the in different places one being the cathedral downtown where he gave those Sunday homilies that made him so famous the other is the little chapel on the grounds of a hospital for people with terminal cancer, which was the place where he chose to live as archbishop, and it's the place where he was murdered while saying mass one night that will be people who've never heard of Oscar Romero who is he was he so important Hughes the archbishop here. Here in popular the capital from one thousand nine hundred seventy seven thousand nine hundred eighty and these were the years just before the twelve year civil war broke out here. And he was he was really beloved and respected because he spoke out very strongly about the injustices that existed here and at that time the country was under a military dictatorship. So that was a pretty risky thing to do. And in fact, it ended up costing his life. He was shot to death the day after he gave a Sunday sermon directing himself, specifically to the members of the armed forces in saying to them, you do not have to obey and immoral order to go out and kill people. And that did not go down well with some of the authorities so who killed him. Well, it was for the most part people from, you know, on the government side, the military or recall, these death squads, although it's really important to point out that there was a growing leftist movement. Here eventually grew in. Into a guerrilla movement launched the war. And when they did when they committed human rights abuses, archbishop lameta was very quick to condemn them too. So he was the even-handed if you will you make a mistake, and you do something wrong, and you could count on him denouncing you for it in his homily the following Sunday. No matter what your political position was his killers. Have never been brought to Justice. Why not well for a long time after the war ended in one thousand nine hundred was an amnesty law and with that the case couldn't go anywhere. Now, the country's supreme court has overturned that amnesty law and actually this week in Rome, the leader of the Catholic church cardinal Rosa Chivers has said he thinks it's really important that there be a trial because he says the wounds from the war had never healed and the only way for them really to heal. Is for the country to find out what the truth really was about his assassination. And then for Justice to be applied that was journalist, gene, Palumbo, speaking to me from El Salvador. The three thousand people have signed a petition opposing a planned statue of Mahatma Gandhi in Malawi's commercial capital plantar, the Gandhi must fall group. Claim not only that the Indian independence hero did nothing for the southern African country. They accused him of being a racist. Jimmy Kenya teaches media and communications at the university of Malawi and told me why he backed this call Gandhi had most if me he has no connection to our country's history Ladele in Africa. And if anything in the listen tears have been few publications that are questioning his stance on Africa and Africans adding that he was one way or the other racist. He's a lot of people will be quite surprised to hear this. But it's a perspective. That's emerged in recent years. What is the evidence from Mahatma Gandhi being racist? When you look at the relations in Malawi Malawi has quite a large Indian community and the most of them run. Businesses, and they are business owners in there's always been sort of conflict between India and business owners and Malawian wake has the Indian community. Malawi doesn't really Mingo doesn't really socialize with a list of the wider Malawian community. So from Malawian, Pittsburgh, do this context to that argument. And yet there is a significant Indian community in Malawi. And and as you said you have Indian government building this conference center. Yes. The point of from Indian government perspective is more or less like how they argued in Ghana win a gun in government was forced to take a statue of Mahatma gun from invest of Ghana the argument that it has been sort of Cordier relationship, and there's been good diplomatic relations between that country. And India just argument that us being made in Malawi in here talking about his statue something that is going to stand in the middle of Malawi's commercial capital. Sign of tolerance. If you were to have this statue built a sign that Malawi has moved on. Yes. You could argue from that perspective. But then when it begin to think about what started stunts for is completely different thing by having fiscally your future generations. And the current generations that here's somebody that you must be. So if not Mahatma Gandhi who would you like to have a statue of this list of Malawian? So it's difficult for me just to name one person. But I think you could in strategic positions, for example, we've had George who is one of and corneal struggle in this country. He headed the British national didn't he? Yes. By this things actually happen. I it's a time struggled people are struggling, and you point out maybe pretty much every country that have killed seven. But when they're struggling for somebody Jimmy Kenya. From the university of Malawi statues are Obata things aren't they brookdale? Absolutely. I think what's interesting about this case is it really is comes out of this outgrowth of decolonization Pan Africanist movement across the continent where people are looking at colonial structures be they buildings or names of streets. Swaziland just recently changed his name to swat teeny to go back to the indigenous name, and even the rose must fall movement at the university of Cape Town with black students talked about impair stemming violence, whereas know racist policies across the university needed to move this the statue of Cecil Rhodes who is a sinister colonialists across the southern African region. So I think it's it's a bigger kind of conversation that's happening across the continent academic spaces, but also at national level, Ron a. Learning to that to what did you make of it? Well, first of all, I hope that the speaker is what's going to campaign had the name of the city of Blantyre change because I think that's not an indigenous name, but I'd say there's two reasons why respectfully I would completely disagree with his position. The first one is that he said that Gandhi has nothing to do with Africa. In fact, of course, apart from having spent large parts of his life in South Africa across the whole of Africa in Kenya in South Africa and elsewhere Indian communities were deeply involved with liberation movements. The African National Congress calls very closely involved with the Indian National Congress, which bore independence to India. And remembering that liberation was cosmopolitan existed across continents, not just within Africa within India is very important and the second even more important reason is to do with nonviolent resistance that was gone these great contribution to independence movements the idea of mass nonviolence in our current terribly violent era. I think that's the contribution. That's well worth making. Of course, Van Gundy had some reprehensible views when he was. Younger he moved completely against against those when he was older and rejected cost racism and so forth. So understanding how figures develop means that they're not saints. They're human beings who deserve respect and Gandhi has as much to say to Africa as great African leaders like Mandela have to the entire world. It's interesting, isn't it though, how one person can be viewed so differently in two different places. Ten seconds each. Yeah. I mean, I think you know, I hear the the points that are taken. I think the concerns across Malawi are are valid again coming out of this d-, colonial sort of Pan Africanist anti-racist movements. But yes, you're you're absolutely right. That's that's the power perspective. Isn't it Ronald ten seconds? I would say the statues of Mandela and Gandhi should be placed all around the world.

"To protest their bad treatment that was something that the whites were very afraid of so that they inculcated in them racial hatred and all of this is still reflected today in the racial divisions that you find in countries such as trinidad guyana so as you say that that legacy discontinued to those day marine there is arguably a positive side to the indenture system in the sense that by the twentieth century it was the suffering of indian indentured sugar workers in natale in south africa which inspired gandhi is fight for freedom just briefly marine explain how his ideas about passive resistance were developed in that fight well the other thing i just want to mention is just as one aside this notion of moving indians from india to different parts of the empire was used largely for sugar but it was for a few other things like the building of the railroads in africa and so africa was another place that they were bringing indians to and gandhi was a young barrister working in south africa with the indian community when a man came into his office complaining about how he was treated by a plantation owner he was actually a gardener but he was in fact a sugar plantation and this sort of opened up ghandi's is to even the idea that there were these indentured workers he actually did not know about this and this entire system and indians had been brought over to south africa they would work there maybe their contracts would expire but then they were not allowed to be full citizens or to stay and this really became a cause that he became very concerned about and it is really the beginning of what we think of as civil disobedience or what he called it is such a hot right it was the peaceful resistance to what the british were doing and i wanted to mention one very interesting fact which is this issue of indenture really troubled gandhi and indenture ended in nineteen seventeen in one of the first the indian national congress it was actually the first thing that they were able to do which is the abolition of indenture.
