Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Ghandi are both two revoutionaly men. Racism was and is a problem in todays and yesterdays culture. These men fought for equal rights of all men and women, no matter the color or origin. This paper will compare the two men not competitivly but as a “based on the facts” comparison.

Both men tried to stop the violence and racial hatred by using non-violence techniques. Ghandi has been known for fasting. Fasting means stopping eating intill his request is acknologed and completed. Ghandi fasted during riots and qould not stop intill he had proof that all violence had stopped. The only reason that this worked so well for him is because he was so respected in his socity. Mandela never fasted for his purpose, he found other ways of controlling his followers. Both of the men used rallys as their main campain gathering technique. These public events often ended in somekind of non-violent protesting.

Prison is one of the many things that these men have in common, both of them served many years. Nelson Mandela served 27 years in his prison, the full sentence he had been given. Ghandi did not only go to prison once, but many times, he had served his several sentences in South Africa and India. Many times these charges that they were held upon were a law that would pass just to prosicute Ghandi or Mandela to lock them up.

Both Mandela and Ghandi started as laywers, then moved into the field of being a active political member, in Mandela’s case this was the ANC (African National Congress). Then came the next step of them devoting their entire lives to their own hope that some day they will make a difrence. They were both more succecfull than anticipated by their enemys and rightfuly so.

In the end both Ghandi and Mandela had many diffrences and similaritys but both are extradordanary men. They were very succesful, no one would think that 1 man could make such an impact in their country, and in Ghandi’s case two countrys. For these men to do such a act will be remberd for years to come. Will their ever be another like these men, only time will tell that.
