Movie & Book - my personal view

The book explains Gandhi's childhood in which appears his mother, his father and his brothers. Similarly, the fights seem are not real but in the film they are  very so stunning. In the movie when he fasted is very hard because we see him very ill. Raquel

I think the movie is the best because I don't have to read and I can understand more things and the movie explains the things better. At the same time I think the book is shorter than movie which takes 2 hours and however the book you can read in 30 minutes.  Marina

In my opinion the book is better because of different reasons. First, the film is too long and the book is shoter, another reason could be that the book starts when Gandhi is a child and you can understant the story better. The last reason isthat the film is old amb the book is new. Finally there are a lot of pictures and you can comprehend more easily. Elsa

India is one of the oldest civilistations in the world. It is more that 4500 year old. People from many different backgrounds live there. In 1500 BC, the population was divided into a hierarchy of groups, or castes, according to profession. Castes gave some people special rights. Others, like the slaves and the "untouchables", were outside the caste system. The untouchable did the worst jobs. They cleaned the streets and collected rubbish.

The Shudras (servents and farm workers) were the  lowest caste. They worked for other people and didn´t own land. They formed the majority of the population.

Above the Shundras were the Vaishyas (merchants). They owned farms or business.

Next came the Krshatriyas (kings and warriors). They were a minority. A woman could be a Kshatriya, but she couldn´t be a warrior.

The highest, and most powerful, caste was the Brahmins (priests and leaders). Only Brahim men were educated and could teach in schools. This was actually the smallest group.

Today, India has got the second largest  population in the world, whit 1.13 billion citizens. Most Indians speak English, but there are 18 official languages spoken in India.
