Mahatma Gandhi led the historic Salt March also known as Dandi March or Salt Satyagraha, inspiring millions of Indians to commit acts of civil disobedience and changing the way the world perceived the movement for Indian independence.

Gandhi embarked on a 240-mile (386 km) march from Sabarmati Ashram, near Ahmedabad, to the coastal village of Dandi. The march began on March 12, 1930, and Gandhi broke the salt laws by making salt (by refusing to pay the tax levied by Britsh government) on April 6, 1930.

The import of the 24-day march echoed around the world. Celebrating the iconic Dandi month, the official Instagram account of the Congress party recently paid tribute to Gandhi by sharing a rare letter written by him.
