A brief biography of the Famous Indian Leader whose birth
anniversary falls on October 2.
(Concluded from last week)
After three years in South Africa, Gandhi wer;t home
to fetch his wife and children and resettle. HIe brought
out a pamphlet in Bombay on the position of Indians in
South Africa and distributed 10,000 copies. Even children
helped him to post'the pamphlets. Plague broke out in
Bombay at the time. Gandhi occupied himself by examin-
ing the bad state of the city which caused had the spread of
disease. He travelled widely in India during this interval,
and frequently expressed his loyalty to the British Constitu/
tion. Taking his wife and two sons, he returned by ship
to South Africa through a terrible gale, but was met in
port by accusations of subversion and by mob brutality.
Gandhi was badly beaten on landing; but refused to pro/
secute his assailants. Shortly after this he was nearly
lynched, but as a result he became a popular hero and
added to Indian National prestige.
He had great difficulty educating his children during
the years of struggle, and later on his sons complained
about these educational deficiencies. Gandhi tells us how
he personally nursed and cared for his children at birth.
There are chaptes in this remarkable life story on the
renunciation, of selfish indulgence; on a fruitarian diet; on
Gandhi's passion for selfhelp and simplicity.
Gandhi practised in his Ashram or settlement the
most vigilant economy, worthy of a Minister of Finanee.
It was the Mahatma's view that the village is the centre
and core of n industrial country.
Meanwhile the Boer war fell upon the country, and
Gandhi became involvedin sanitary reform and famine
relief A frAr the war he returned to India, insisting beLre
he left that all his family should part with thit gold orna,
ments and treasures for the good of the people.

between cleanliness and dirt was vital to Gandhiji, and he

spoke before Congress in Calcutta on the prevailing shock,
ing sanitary conditions. He went so far as to clean latrines
personally, appealing for volunteers. In touring Bengal he
was shocked by the mass slaughter of animals, and later
after settling in a suburb of Bombay and bringing his
second son through a typhoid attack, Gandhi was urged to
return to South Africa.
And now, as often happens within the lives of great
men, epochal events crowded into the months and years
with speed and ferocity. You may say that there were
three great moral campaigns which marked certain stages
of the Mahatma's existence. The first was h's struggle t,
better the peasants' lives and education, and to promote a
unified national spirit among Indians. The second was
SWARAJ Independence campaign which took place
from 1928 to 1947, ending in victory, but which despite all
his hopes for peaceful settlement is recorded in the blood of
the people. The third took place at Delhi during the last
few months of his life.
If I have concentrated more upon the earlier or for/
mative part of Gandhiji's existence it is because I prefer to
use his own thoughts and feelings about that life than the
opinions of others, and his autobiography ends long before
his days terminated. Moreover, all the world knows, or
ought to know, the tragic and glorious events concerned
with India's struggle for independence, which have passed
into recorded history.
Today, nearing his birthday anniversary, I am writing
about a man who wore one of the faces of the Sage, and
would like to remind you all of a letter he once received
from a Christian gentleman, to wh6m he wrote in reply,
"Has not Christ said, 'Love thy neighbour as thyself'
If a man forsakes his neighboring shopkeeper for one far
off, he is forgetting his own neighbouriness and following
the dictates of self/interest. The shopkeeper who is his
neighbbur has opened a shop on the strength of the
-atronage he hop-s to get fom his neighbour. The prin,
ciple of 'Swadeshi' (that is of -buyin- and using goods
made locally) enjoins that we shall, fulfil our duty towards
our neighbours, and not neglect the obligations laid upon
us as social beings."
Gandhi once said: "A reformer
ild cannot afford to have close intimacy
with him whom he seeks to reform
..... In friendship there is very little
scope for reform." He frequently
iIL= nn Tn a i
related his principles to the Christian
ideal. Once he translated the Sans-
krit word "Jaya Jaya" (which liter-
ally means 'victory, victory') as "Thy
will be done." His friend Kaka
Kalelkar asked him, "How is this,
Bapu:" He gave him a most interes-
ing explanation, which ended in
the following words:- "After all,
what do we pray fore Is it not
simply that God should be ever
victorious in our own hearts?"
Naturally these words of Bapu
are of great importance to Christan
people of today, and it seems that
one day an American protestant
wrote down certain questions for
the Mahatma to answer. One was:
"Amongst the hopes and disappoint,
ments you have to fice and experi,
ence, will yuu tell me what comforts
and sustains you most!" Gandhlji
replied, ':'he thing th,t comforts and
sustains me most is the nonviolence
of our masses, in spte of the gravest
The Reverend asked again: "And
what is it that causes you the most
concern'and keeps you restless night
and day?" Gandhi paused for a
minute to think, then said, 'Ibe
hardness of heart of the educated."
Gandhi once told Dr. P. C.
Ghcsh that no l-af of the tree falls
without th: will of God and that
most men ofreligion ,that he had
met were, in tLe main, politciars
in disguise! He added '"But I who
carry a mask of politics am in the
hearts a man of religion."
At his prayer meeting Gandhi
had Hindu, Muslim, Christian,
Buddhist and zoroasurian prayers.
There was a black and white picture
1944. A friend once a.ked him
"'How is that you are not a Chris-
tian:" Gandhi replied: 'I am a
Christian, a Hincu, and a Muslim,
and a Jew.' Some of these quota-
tions led to the charges that he was
