Attending the meetings, taking part in discussions with leaders and his visitors, writing replies to the letters received, and preparing articles for the journals.
One day George Bernard Shaw, the famous thinker and playwright visited him. “I am also a sort of a Mahatma’’, Shaw said as he grasped the hands of Mahatma Gandhi. They discussed various topics of common interest for about an hour.
“Is not this Round Table Conference testing your patience”, asked the playwright. “Infinite patience is needed in matters like this” Gandhi, the great Indian leader responded.
