Great Leader Gandhiji: Kids Poetry on Mahatma Gandhi

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born on October 2, 1869 in Porbandar, India. He became one of the most respected spiritual and political leaders of the 1900’s. Gandhiji helped free the Indian people from British rule through nonviolent resistance, and is honored by Indians as the father of the Indian Nation.

The Indian people called Gandhiji ‘Mahatma’, meaning Great Soul. At the age of 13 Gandhi married Kasturba, a girl the same age. Their parents arranged the marriage. The Gandhis had four children. Gandhi studied law in London and returned to India in 1891 to practice. In 1893 he took on a one-year contract to do legal work in South Africa.

At the time the British controlled South Africa. When he attempted to claim his rights as a British subject he was abused, and soon saw that all Indians suffered similar treatment. Gandhi stayed in South Africa for 21 years working to secure rights for Indian people.

He developed a method of action based upon the principles of courage, nonviolence and truth called Satyagraha. He believed that the way people behave is more important than what they achieve. Satyagraha promoted nonviolence and civil disobedience as the most appropriate methods for obtaining political and social goals. In 1915 Gandhi returned to India. Within 15 years he became the leader of the Indian nationalist movement.

Great Leader Gandhiji: Kids Poetry on Mahatma Gandhi

Oh! Great Leader Gandhiji
We all call you ‘Bapuji’
Oh! Father of our Nation
You made a Sensation

When you got us Independence
Without any violence
Oh! Great Leader Gandhiji
You practised law in South Africa

And told the British to Quit India
And fought for India’s freedom
Without any weapons
Oh! Great Leader Gandhiji

You told the Indians to
burn Pardesi and buy Swadeshi
To make salt you went to Dandi
You made cloth with Khadi

We must thank God
For this devoted man
Whom I remember every time
In my short life span.
