Gandhi's Visit to Uttarakhand

In the Lap of the Himalaya

This paper looks at Mahatma Gandhi's epoch-making visit to Uttarakhand in 1929 as a crucial link between the nation's struggle for swaraj and the ongoing people's movement in the region. Gandhi's visit kindled the process of giving the freedom movement in Uttarakhand a mass base. Just so, the numerous social activists of the Chipko movement and the anti-liquor protests of today owe their inspiration of Gandhi. In many ways, Gandhi's understanding and analysis of the issues, including untouchability, the flesh trade and the education system, and the prescriptions he suggested for their remedy form a useful basis for a blueprint to solve the region's problems even today.
