Ramdas Mohandas Gandhi (2 January 1897 – 14 April 1969) was the third son of Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. He was born in South Africa. He outlived his parents and all of his brothers. He and his wife Nirmala had three children; Sumitra Gandhi, Kanu Gandhi and Usha Gandhi. He was active in his father's Indian independence movement.
He had no taste for asceticism, yet participated in the grueling civil protests of the 1930s. Numerous jailings had serious effects on his health. Raised in South Africa, he never adjusted to the idealistic poverty imposed by his father.
He died in the year of his father's centenary, aged 72. He was survived by his wife Nirmala and three children, none of whom are still alive.
