There have been many great leaders throughout history, but one that rises above all others is Gandhi. Not only did he unite 350 million people to his cause, but through a campaign of non-cooperation and passive resistance, he freed his entire country of a foreign oppressor. Unlike many other leaders in history who had ulterior motives behind their actions, Gandhi did not, could not have. There was nothing personal he could have gained through what he did. He lived very plainly, was arrested and imprisoned many times, and suffered on many levels in his devotion to his people. He truly was one of the most devoted, selfless, caring leaders in the history of mankind.
