Gandhi was a clear example of how peace is effective in resolving conflicts when accompanied by an inner belief and identification with the values of life.
Humanitarian motivation for taking his fellow extreme poverty led Gandhi to consider the values of peace as a tool of progress, freedom and identity for its people.
