was in Wardha when all these were happening in India. He was concerned with his work of rural reconstruction
– untouchability, family planning, proper sanitation, mixed marriages, spinning and wearing home-spun clothes etc.
He was more concerned with the day-to-day problems of the villager like the type of vegetables that a Indian villager has to choose for his food, how to comfort a poor village woman who lost her close relative, finding a suitable bridegroom for a village girl, finding necessary medical treatment for a sick farmer, or helping a poor writer from a village.
He believed that politics that does not touch the every day life of the villages was no politics. As a biographer later put it, the Mahatma was trying to see life in its entirety.
