The Dandi March illustrated in the doodle was undertaken by Mahatma Gandhi on March 12, 1930, from Sabarmati Ashram to Dandi, in Gujarat. The Dandi March was undertaken to protest against the tax resistance and salt monopoly that was implemented by the British in pre-independent India. Also known as the Salt Satyagraha, the Dandi March started from Sabarmati Ashram and ended in the village of Dandi, where Gandhiji made salt from water as an mark of protest.
