Why do you think Gandhi considered the Champaran episode to be a turning point in his life?


Answer – 

The Champaran event had solved various problems faced by the poor peasants. They were relieved from the torture they had to face at the hands of the landlords. They gained courage and became fearless. Now the common man realized the power of non – violence. 

Thousands of people had supported Gandhiji. He once said that what he did was an ordinary thing as he didn’t want the Britishers to order him in his own country. It was at this point that he decided to ask them to leave India and thus, marked the start of Gandhiji’s involvement in India’s freedom struggle.
