(p.78) Nine The Dandi March
In Search of Gandhi

B. R. Nanda

Oxford University Press

This chapter recounts Gandhi’s 241-mile trek from Ahmedabad to Dandi, inaugurating the ‘Salt Satyagraha’, which proved to be one of the most dramatic and successful episodes in the history of the Indian freedom struggle. It discusses how Gandhi’s imprisonment stimulated rather than slackened civil disobedience. Civil disobedience, inspired by Gandhi’s action, resulted in the signing of the Gandhi–Irwin Pact in March 1931.

Keywords:   Mahatma Gandhi, Dandi March, Ahmedabad, Salt Satyagraha, Indian freedom struggle, civil disobedience, Gandhi–Irwin Pact
