Gandhi arrived in the Indian political sphere in 1915 after his return from South Africa. He spread the ideas of satyagraha, ahimsa, fast-unto-death, etc. People related to these ideas in their own ways and linked them to their local grievances. Some of its examples can be seen in many parts of the country.
1. In Kheda, British levied high revenue on the land. The peasants frequently had to face famines, poverty, lack of resources, etc. A major tax revolt was organised by Sardar Patel against this which eventually forced the government to reach an agreement to satisfy them.
2. In Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, access to forest resources was restricted. This was protested by the peasants by way of organising ‘forest satyagrahas.’
3. In Punjab, people protested against corrupt mahants. This protest got intensified with the Non-Cooperation movement.
4. In Sind and Bengal, people were excited about the Khilafat- Noncooperation alliance and demonstrated communal unity.
