The end of the story…
On Jan. 13, 1948, at the age of 78, Gandhi began his last fast. His purpose was to end the bloodshed among Hindu, Muslim, and other groups. On January 18, their leaders pledged to stop fighting and Gandhi broke his fast. Twelve days later, in New Delhi, while on his way to a prayer meeting, Gandhi was assassinated. Nathuram Godse, a Hindu fanatic who opposed Gandhi's program of tolerance for all creeds and religions, shot him three times.
A shocked India and a saddened world mourned Gandhi's death. The great scientist Albert Einstein said of Gandhi:
"Generations to come will scarcely believe that such a one as this walked the earth in flesh and blood."
