To a taunt that only the rich and the literate can stay with Gandhiji; he replies in the affirmative and says that Gandhiji wants the rich to give up the riches and the literate to do manual work.

Chides her by suggesting that she should marry as desired by her mother but doubts if she is fit for it as she is very unsteady.

Gandhiji says that people are not careful in handling the relief funds. There was a tendency to mix up reconstruction work with relief work without tapping other sourees for reconstruction work, they just spend finds for reconstruction work even though they are meant for relief work. Relief work was also undertaken in many cases with political motives. Bulgeting becomes meaniugless when Presidents of the Committees are persuaded to give blank cheques. Some executive control over such things is absolutely necessary.

The organistation consists of all non-Harijans and not necessarily of Brahamins. Again each Board contains atleast one Harijan though personally I would prefer to exclude him as the work is purely of repentance by and purification of the non-Harijans. Harijans themselves may have their own boards asking for redress of grievances. Regarding prayers in the Ashram Though we have sprinkling of non Hindu prayers it is not possible to adopt a common prayer as the inmates are mostly Hindus.

There is nothing wrong in obtaining money (for maintenance) by a worker from his brother. But when the amount obtained is more than necessary and then the surplus is given over to others, it is pure theft and an act of unfriendlyness.

Your letter. Harakhchand and Vijaya passed through here today. Jamna is a little hesitant regarding your getting relieved.

I got your letter dated 26th Aug.- Delay in giving reply. You should spend as much as is sanctioned by the Executive Committee. If you can go to Bangeshwar immediately, you can do so. To purchase land for Ashram, houses to be built up. You can work independently there: Take care of your health. God has given enough strength to anybody to fight against all injustices. Another important matter has come up in the Ashram. But, no time write about it at present.

According to your calculation, it is 13 yards per person. In Guleria, it may be 50 yards per person. We are surprised to learn that Japanese Calico cloth costs more than the local Calico cloth, and Khadi is cheaper than the Calico cloth, you write to me what Harijan Sangh is to decide about Tikaramji. Going to Delhi today and returning between 20th and 29th. If Kashi finds the weather too cold, she may be sent earlier. If you have not Christened your daughter as yet, you may Christen her as Indumati. (To Amba, Gandhiji says that he has received her letter and asks her to stick to ideals even in difficult times.)

Received your letter dated 20/12/1934. As I was away in Delhi and Indore, and as Chimanbhai was not here, reply to your letter is delayed. If appears complete facts have not been placed before you. The tradition to which you refer has to be observed by both the parties-the mill-owners as well as the labourers. Of late, if has been observed the labourers are breaking the tradition. Even then, it is made out as though the millowners are at fault. If we talk of maintaining the tradition, then both the parties should be equally serious and sincere about the matter.
