The Story of Seed Potatoes

Sudhir Ghosh


The anecdote carried here is a typical example of how Gandhiji treated a matter thoroughly. Nothing was small for him. This anecdote consists of an incident of a few poor farmers from the villages of Bengal who shared their difficulties with Gandhiji about getting good seed material for cultivating potatoes on their field. Gandhiji felt convinced of their need and the urgency involved and he put his ace emissary Sudhir Ghosh on the job of getting seed potatoes. The anecdote shows to what extent Shri Sudhir Ghosh had to go to procure the needed seed potatoes. At long last the potatoes were found and passed on to the needy farmers. Gandhiji saw to it that the mission was fulfilled in time. A good example for all of us to remember.
