Your saying that (1) neglect of health by a public worker is not a merit, requires clarification. Sacrifice and public work go hand in hand (2) Telling truth un a palatable form is a form of untruth. That also requires clarification. (1) Real Ahimsa is based on knowledge of limitation. (2) Truth becomes untruth when to put it in a palatable form one tries to please others.

Your letter. Kakasaheb also appreciates your experiences as a "Sthitaprajnya".The translated matter you have sent is good. But it will lie here for some time. In the meanwhile, you may do some other work. Your idea of improving the spinning wheel is praiseworthy. But you should follow Singher or the spinning Jenny.

Your letter. The real evaluation of man's life does not lie in the results achieved.But it lies in intentions. For God, results are not important, because He is the Master of results. I am not writing separately to Kashi. It is good news that Amba had a safe dilivery. Take care of your helth. Indira's progress seems to be satisfactory. Don't be in a hurry to go to jail. Let Kashi go if she is keeping fit.

Tells her that Gandhiji will always be prepared to advise but the mission will be her own responsibility. Advises not to worry about prisoners or manzilgahs. Desires her to explain to the Sind Muslims that bloodshed will not get them justice. Advises her not to act against the advice of Maulana Saheb. Advises to meet Muslim Leauger as without them Hindu Muslim unity is not possible.

Hints and instructions regarding boiling the water for the patients, and about arrangements to distant visitors only. Orders for Ramayana and other books can be set with Sasta Mandal. Just as eyes and ears can work simultancously. So can Ramnam and other actions go together.

For defects (in education) in him Gandhiji also is responsible, but Gandhiji has been experimenting. Informs] that Hitler's letter (or his letter to Hitler) is straight from his heart. One should see only the brighter side of another, but if the blacker side is revealed that also must be exposed.

One cannot pray while doing some work.How then to pray constantly? If Celibacy and Ahimsa are mear physical efforts.

I am still doubtfull about the feasibility of non stop Ramnama and also work. Further, does limiting Celibacy to physical action not near the ideal of Celibacy ?

Repeating Ramnam doesnot mean discontinuance of other work.Both go simltancously. Observance of Celibacy presupposes existence of body. More mental Celibacy is meaningless.
