given below:- 15
Gandhiji’s great aim in life was to help to improve the condition of
poor and suffering people in any way he could, but always without using
force. He was against every sort of evil, no matter of what kind. When he
tried to find out about the condition among poor farm workers, the people
crowded around him by the hunderds. A friend had come amoing them,
someone who wanted to help them, and to them this was new. When the
police ordered Gandhiji to leave the place, he refused and in the court the
explained why he could not obey. Then he asked the court to punish him for
breaking the law. The court did not know what verdict to give in such case
and so let him go free.
