Two days with Mahatma Gandhi

Chitta Ranjan Dev

Abstract


The author had the rare privilege of meeting Mahatma Gandhi when the latter visited Noakhali for restoration of peace following a large-scale violence triggered by the call given by the Indian Muslim League to the Muslims to launch direct action from August 16, 1946 for the creation of an independent state for them, namely Pakistan. He narrates the enthusiasm of the people over the arrival of the Mahatma at Noakhali. There are very few left in the country who had seen the Mahatma and had the opportunity to interact with him. As a young boy of 15, he saw and met Gandhi and received his blessings which continue to inspire him to render service to the downtrodden.
