British India contained the most popular and valuable provinces of the British Empire and thus became known as “the jewel in the British crown”.

Scene 7:- Salt March
Set :- Motomoatchi
Gandhi (Abhishek) – In all probability this will be my last speech to you. Even if the Government allow me to march tomorrow morning, this will be my last speech on the sacred banks of the Sabarmati. Possibly these may be the last words of my life here. I have already told you yesterday what I had to say. Today I shall confine myself to what you should do after my companions and I are arrested. The programme of the march to Jalalpur must be fulfilled as originally settled. The enlistment of the volunteers for this purpose should be confined to Gujarat only. From what I have been and heard during the last fortnight, I am inclined to believe that the stream of civil resisters will flow unbroken
Scene 8:- Assassination
Scene 9:- Bloopers
A:- Leaders make history because it is always an individual who steps up and leads his people to rebellion. If another person would have stepped up instead of Gandhi history would have been different from what it is now. Gandhi had his own ways to protest for freedom such as, fasting for 21 days. Not everyone would sacrifice their lives to protect their country like he did. From these things that Gandhi did, he came up with many ideas to protest which were very successful. Those ideas wouldn’t have been made if Gandhi wasn’t there through that history. So, I strongly believe that leaders made history.
