Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi
Mohandas K. Gandhi as a little boy, "Mohan."
Later in life Gandhi lived with only a few simple possessions, including his sandals, reading glasses, wooden spoon, bowl and pocket watch.
Gandhi's father was Karamchand Gandhi.
Gandhi also had one little favorite object: a sculpture of the three monkeys that represents the life motto: "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil."
Mohan's mother was Putlibai Gandhi.
Gandhi always carried with him a spinning wheel, also known as a charkha. He would spin cotton into string that would later be woven into cloth. Sometimes he even had contests in the ashram to see who could spin the most cotton in a given time.
