Sample text

It is not inter-marriage nor inter-dining between various groups, nor a common language, which will make us one nation; it is common feeling. A nation is an expression of the feeling of oneness. Where can we experience that oneness, that equality, except where we pray and spin together! Elsewhere, we are given divisive labels: teacher and taught, tich and poor, healthy and sick, and so on. I use the word 'meditation' both for prayer and for takli (or charkha) spinning. Spoken prayer is meditation in words, takli spinning is meditation in work.

Sometimes (as I have said) I composed poems which I then consigned to the river. Sometimes I sat in meditation or in deep thought, sometimes I listened to the debates between the pandits which took place daily at the riverside. One day there was a debate between the advocates of advaita (non-duality) and those of nvuita (duality). The advuita party was declared victor. I stood up. ' The President saw that I was a mere boy, but he gave me permission to speak. ' This contradiction of the judgement startled them, but I went on: 'How can anyone who really believes in advaita enter into debate at all?

The Charkha Sangh (All India Spinners Association) had fixed wages which amounted to only five rupees a month for four hanks daily, that is, for nine hours' work a day. In my opinion a spinner should receive not less than four annas (a quarter-rupee) for his daily quota; Bapu would have liked it to be eight annas. But that would have put up the price of Khadi, and the gentry would not be prepared to pay a higher rate. What could be done? The only way was for someone like me to experiment in living on the spinner's wage.
