I am an experienced tutor, having taught over 25 students, ranging from ages 11-18 in a number of subjects.

Gandhi's idea of Satyagraha is a coordinated idea and incorporates truth, peacefulness, non-taking, purity or Brahmacharya, destitution or non-ownership, bread work, valor, control of the sense of taste [Asvada], resilience, Swadeshi and expulsion of unapproachability. As indicated by Gandhi, Satyagraha can be embraced by anyone. He said that Satyagraha resembled a banyan tree, which had multitudinous branches. Truth-Satya and peacefulness Ahimsa together made its parent trunk from which all the countless branches shoot out. Satyagraha has likewise been considered as a weapon of soul power to oppose any sort of mistreatment. While Gandhi viewed Satyagraha as a lifestyle, amid the opportunity battle of India, Satyagraha was utilized as a weapon to oppose the expert of the state and to accomplish different things for the general welfare of the general population. Gandhi and his main lieutenant Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel had directed the Satyagrahas at Champaran and Bardoli not exclusively to accomplish material increases for the general population, yet in addition to opposing the out of line expert of the then English administration. The Common Rebellion Development of 1930, which was begun with the overstepping of the Salt Law at Dandi, and the Quit India Developments were exemplary models when Gandhi and his associates utilized Satyagraha as a weapon of the spirit drive. Satyagraha as a method for obstruction and compromise has diverse structures. Yearning strike [fasting], Hartal [striking work], hijrat [immigration] and so forth are a portion of the structures recommended.
