66. Ba learns how to write English at the age of sixty !
In 1930, when she was in jail, Ba learnt that one of her fellow-prisoners knew English. So she started learning English from her, in spite of the fact that she was then nearly sixty years old. She spent days and days on learning how to write the alphabets. She never showed any lack of interest or enthusiasm or any in­feriority complex in doing so. For, she had only one ambition, namely, to be able to write Bapu's address herself, whenever she wrote a letter to him, rather than depend on someone else for the purpose, and also to pick out the letters addressed to her from among the heavy post, received daily for Bapu.
