When you're young you still believe in your own strength and all you can do, what the Bible calls "the arm of the flesh." It took another 2 1/2 decades for the point to sink in of what Gandhi really did, and the great sample he offered of what can be achieved by passive resistance and civil disobedience based or a greater moral right. "The meek shall inherit the Earth," and as far as I'm concerned, Christian or not, may Gandhi be one of them.
