Gandhi lived one of the great 20th-century lives. He inspired and enraged, challenged and galvanised many millions of men and women around the world. He lived almost entirely in the shadow of the British Raj, which for much of his life seemed a permanent fact, but which he did more than anyone else to destroy, using revolutionary tactics.
