Mahatma Gandhi (or Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi) born October 2nd, 1869 (died 30 January 1948 [aged 78]) was an important Indian revolutionist who initiated the IIM or Indian Independence Movement of 1915-1945. During this time, the British ruled what is now called India (called British India from 1915 to 1945). During this time, the British were dedicators over the country by wrongly demanding money from fishermen, sugar farmers and salt harvesters.
When Mahatma Gandhi said "no" he was saying no to following the orders of the British India during WW1. By saying No, he created the Indian Independence Movement and gave India its independence back through a non-violent revolution of protests and meetings.
Had I myself been in his situation, I would have acted the same as my subject Mahatma Gandhi because his actions were some of the least violent ways of resolving his problem. I would still say no to the British rule like Gandhi but probably wouldn't have pushed the topic so hard even though it was important to do so. This is because I wouldn't be able to know what the British at the time were willing to do to get rid of an "issue" (such as assassination).
If I had made any alternative actions, I might have made the process of the IIM go faster instead of the long term process it went through. I probably would have been more passive-aggressive than Gandhi in order to make this happen.
With those additions, I believe the IIM would have gone faster than it did, other than those I would have done everything else the same as Mahatma Gandhi because in the end his choices were definitely the wisest.
