I know!! :D
Gandhi and his followers used a method called "passive resistance" to get their point across without using violence during their boycott. If violence was struck upon them by somebody else, they would simply take it and keep going without fighting back.
Gandhi lead a 24-day march called the "Salt March" that lasted from March 12, 1930 to April 6, 1930. He and his followers lead this march to lower and/or stop high taxes on salts. He even boycotted goods sold by the British.
In 1947, the Indians had finally gained independence from the British.
