Gandhi

Gandhi

Gandhi admitted in his autobiography to hitting his wife when he was young and indulging in carnal pleasures out of lust, jealousy, and possessiveness, not genuine love. He slept with 2 naked 18-year-old girls at night to test his willpower, when he was old. He, holding fast to his principles, refused to let the people in his area inoculate their children against smallpox, due to the role cattle played in creating the vaccine. Many children died. Gandhi refused to let doctors administer penicillin to his wife, which led to her death, yet accepted quinine to save his life.
