His name was Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi (later referred to as Mahatma Gandhi) and his Orchard's home is now a fascinating living museum.
The gorgeous home was named 'The Kraal' by Gandhi and his dear friend (who was also the architect) Hermann Kallenbach.
The museum is filled with the intertwining history of these two men and is called the Satyagraha House after the passive-resistance movement of the same name. It is said that Gandhi began working on his principles of Satyagraha in this very house (although this could be more romantic thought than truth), which were later adopted by Nelson Mandela in the form of mass civil protest and passive non-compliance with the South African Apartheid government as opposed to violent resistance.
He was arrested, but the photograph wasn't discovered by the police.
