Wanna know why?
was “gentle“ (sanft), not “noble“(ad(e)lig)
wouldn't have (hätte nie Konditionalsatz) killed a fly
never lifted a stone
never raised (erhob) his voice
had common sense and used it instead of violence
was respecful to everyone
was the father of “passive resistance“, that's fighting for your rights without using violence
never gave up in the face of adversity (angesichts von Widrigkeiten, also Schwierigkeiten)
was extremely successful: he overcame (besiegte) the British colonial empire so that India became (wurde!) independent (unabhängig)
A perfect gentleman, really! Or did you think being a gentleman was about clothes?
