[stopping Gandhi on the train in South Africa]
What are you doing in here, coolie?
I reserved this car. I have a ticket.
How did you get hold of it?
I sent for it by post. I am an attorney.
European Passenger:
An attorney! There are no colored attorneys in South Africa - move your black ass into third class where it belongs!
I'll take your luggage, sir...
No, wait.
[he takes out his card and shows it]

You see? 'Mohandas K. Gandhi, Attorney at Law.' I am on my way to Pretoria to conduct a case...
European Passenger:
Didn't you hear me? There are no colored attorneys in South Africa!
Sir, I was called to the bar in London, and enrolled in the High Court of Chancery. I am therefore an attorney. And since I am, in your eyes, 'colored,' I think we can deduce that there is at least one colored attorney in South Africa.

Summary: In the early years of the 20th century, Mohandas K. Gandhi, a British-trained lawyer, forsakes all worldly possessions to take up the cause of Indian independence. Faced with armed resistance from the British government, Gandhi adopts a policy of 'passive resistance', endeavouring to win freedom for his people without resorting to bloodshed.
