by

    South Africa and India have marked the 125th anniversary of a significant moment in their histories - when Mahatma Gandhi was forced off a whites-only train.

    After his experience, Gandhi began a campaign to put an end to racial discrimination and oppression through non-violent means.

    This is seen as the Indian independence leader's first act of civil disobedience.
