During the Battle of Spioenkop, Ghandi and a group of 1100 others were stretcher bearers. Ghandi performed incredibly well under the circumstances in these dark times and carried out his work exceptionally.
He was also responsible for training the other stretcher bearers in their duties. They left on the last train prior to the Ladismith Siege.
The Hindu Community in Ladysmith celebrated the anniversary of his arrival in Natal in 1993 and erected a statue of him outside of the Vishnu Temple in his honour.
