#119 India...Thanks Kamal!

This stamp is from 2007 Satyagraha issue.

Satyagraha is a philosophy and practice of nonviolent resistance developed by Mahatma Gandhi. Gandhi deployed satyagraha in campaigns for Indian independence and also during his earlier struggles in South Africa. Satyagraha theory also influenced Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King, Jr. during the campaigns the latter led during the civil rights movement in the United States, and many other social justice and similar movements.
