  • After Gandhi's death, Vinoba Bhave undertook a padyatra to spread Gandhi's message across India.
  • In Pochampalli , some poor landless villagers demanded land for their economic well-being, and Vinoba Bhave suggested cooperative farming to the government as a solution.
  • Shri Ram Chandra Reddy stood up and offered 80 acres of land to be distributed among 80 landless villagers, which was known as 'Bhoodan'.
  • Later, Vinoba Bhave traveled and introduced his ideas widely all over India, and some zamindars offered to distribute some villages among the landless, known as Gramdan.
