Dandi

Dandi
Situated on the coastline and well known as a salt centre, Dandi has acquired a name in history after the famous Dandi March Salt Satyagraha launched by Gandhiji in March, 1930 A.D.

While overtly the Dandi march purported to protest against the hateful Salt Tax levied by the British, the underlying purpose was to kindle the spark of Civil Disobedience and thereby attain independence.

On a warm April morning in 1930 Gandhi and his 78 Satyagrahis marched 241 miles to Dandi and formally breached the Salt Law an act that would go down in the annals of history as the first salvo to be fired against the British Empire.
