SEEING THE OTHER MAN'S POINT OF VIEW

As I look back upon the talks that I had with him inDelhi in the spring of 1931, two conversations stand out in my recollection. They have always seemed to me a better interpretation of his mind and method than anything else, as showing the way that the idealist and the realist could meet. The first related to his demand, as part of the arrangement to be made on the cessation of Civil Disobedience, for an enquiry into the actions of the Police over the last twelve months. I resisted this on…

AUSTERITY EVEN IN PRISON

When Gandhi was arrested and lodged in the Yervada Jail in 1930, the Government had fixed a sum of Rs. 150 for the monthly expenses on him in prison. On the 'first day, Major Martin (an Englishman) who was the Superintendent of the jail took a lot of furniture, crockery and cooking utensils to Gandhi. Gandhi enquired "For whom have you brought all this?” Then he asked Major Martin to take everything away. The Major was nonplussed. He thought Gandhi was dissatisfied, with what he had brought.…

HUNT FOR THE TINY PENCIL

One day, Gandhi was working at his desk, when he suddenly realized that he had to leave at once to be in time for an appointment elsewhere. He started collecting his papers and arranging whatever he had on his desk with great care and method. Suddenly he stopped, and began to scan through everything that was on the desk. It looked as though he was looking for something that he had lost or misplaced. Kaka Saheb Kalelkar, one of Gandhi's associates, who was standing and watching could not help…

MENDING TORN CLOTHES

The dress that Gandhi wore was the bare minimum. He had a short dhoti, often called a loin cloth, and a shawl which he used to cover his chest and back when necessary. He believed he had no right to wear more when the ordinary villager had nothing more and when the village women often had to make do with one sari. One day, on one of his tours he found a woman draped in a drenched sari. Half of it was draped round her body, and the other half was stretched out and tied to a small tree. There…

THE ECO-FRIENDLY TOOTH BRUSH

One day, in the Yeravda Jail, Gandhi noticed that one of his associates in the ashram, Kaka Kalelkar, was in the habit of breaking off whole little branches of the neem tree even if he needed only four or five leaves. Gandhi said to him: "This is hinsa (violence). Others might not be able to understand, but you can. Even these four leaves should be plucked by us humbly, with due apologies to the tree. You break off whole twigs or branches." "......And then," recalls Kaka Kalelkar, "we…
