Thoreau’s ideas had a profound effect on a man named Gandhi. Gandhi, was a leader in India who worked to end British rule. He led India to independence and inspired many to non-violent forms of protest and resistance. He fought to end poverty, worked to expand women's right to vote, and built bridges between ethnic and religious groups. Like Thoreau, he lived simply, owned very little, and ate a vegetarian diet. In India, Gandhi's form of protest was called the "non-cooperation movement." He urged Indians to boycott British education systems and leave government jobs. The movement was very popular, and in part to stop its spread, the British controlled government arrested him. After a few years, he was released and became active in politics again. He inspired many to follow him on marches to protest various taxes. On one such march, thousands followed him 240 miles over 24 days to the sea to protest a salt tax. This march set the example of non-violent resistance to the government that others in the country followed. Eventually India won independence from Britain, in large part because of Gandhi work. What is the main idea of the bolded paragraph? Gandhi had much to lose. Gandhi was more organized than Thoreau. Gandhi protested against taxes. Gandhi was willing to go to jail.
it would be ghandi had much to lose right ?
Well that might be true, but there's one that's most certainly true. Which one do you think that is?
i was thinking ghandi was willing to go to jail but that does not seem like a main idea
You're right. It's not the main idea. What did Ghandi go to jail for? Protesting against taxes, right?
soooo lol him protesting against taxes is the main idea ? how do u figure it says that he did that and many other things such as womens rights and what not
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, the main idea. I misread the question. Since that's the case, I think you were correct the first time.
so he had much to lose ?
