I read and interesting quote the other day.
“Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.”
—Mahatma Gandhi (Autobiography, by M.K. Gandhi, p.446)
I must confess an amount of ignorance concerning Gandhi and his life. I’ve heard him referenced before, and had a vague notion of what he stood for, but have never really studied him, even in passing. I’ll be adding his autobiography to the ever growing pile of books I need to consume.
