In his cell at Yerovda Jail near Bombay Gandhi begins a hunger strike in protest of the British government’s decision to separate India’s electoral system by caste. Gandhi announced he was beginning a “fast unto death” in order to protest British support of a new Indian constitution, which gave the country’s lowest classes–known as “untouchables”–their own separate political representation for a period of 70 years.
