Letter from Gandhiji to Sarojini Naidu, December 20, 1925

December 20, 1925

This is my last letter to you before we meet at Cawnpore where a mere woman displaces a mere man. May your words come out of purity, may you adore womanhood and Hinduism. May your words be as balm to the Hindu-Muslim wound. You are too great to notice the childish display of unchivalrous incivility.

From: Mahadev Desai's diary; Collected Works, Volume 29, page 338
