SATYAGRAHA / CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE > Letter to Brijkrishna Chandiwala
Letter To Brijkrishna Chandiwala
It pained me to have to use harsh words with you, but it had to be done, as I wished to remove your pusillanimity. Unless you are determined and firm in your purpose, your energies cannot be fully utilized. Tenderness of heart is essential, but for true tenderness determination is even more essential. Thereby family ties are purified, and delusion is overcome. You must also give up your desire to meet me. Whatever I could give you I have already given. A time will come when you too will have to go to jail like so many of us, but for the present your work is your prison. Therefore do not leave Vijapur unless it is on important business. Improve your health, and continue to render whatever help you can.
