Satyagraha

Gandhiji is best known for his weapon of "Satyagraha" and I realized why Britishers were afraid of it, because they had realized that it was easy to break someone's body , but it was not easy to break someone's principles. The idea has been clearly depicted in the movie "The bridge on the river of kwai" . Colonel Nicholson uses the principle to defeat Japanese morally.
