The note in the diary dated 7-4-1928 refers to relation between father and son. Gandhiji says that the son need not necessarily choose his fatheras his "Guru". The father is not supposed to become his son's "Guru" forcibly. When we think of 'Rama' as an ideal son, we make a mistake in thinking him to be a historical person. One of the measures of man's power is his power of inventing, and to convert the unfavourable circumstances into favourable ones.

I am not decided upon my going to Europe as yet. Personally I do not like it. I will decide in 15-20 days. You need not come here during this season. Really, you should not ask your parents to come and stay with you to help and serve you. The "Charakha" teaches us the lesson of selflessness and equaniunty.
