He was 5'4". World War II, and particularly the Fall of Singapore, ensured India got its independence in 1947.

@Editor Rob, any idea of adding Jinnah (founder of Pakistan) on this site?
Editor Rob: not sure on him.

Glad the little great man finally got a page (balancing out Hitler!), although I'd expect he wouldn't be far off the average for an Indian man of his generation.

Don't call him a little man....he was short in height but he did a lot for India to gain freedom...In his achievements he was a giant....

I've read he was 5'2" at the end.

Gandhi was right about World War II.

Editor Rob: by his 50's I think he probably had lost some height.

5'4" seems his accurate height than 5'5" that I read across an article about Gandhi. But his current listing of 5'4.5"(164) in google is questionable for his height in his youth.

I've read 5'3 also. He did look 5'4 or below
