STUDENTS' PROJECTS > GANDHI KATHA > He is mine !
He is mine !
Once, an important session of the executive council of All India Congress Committee was going on in the Sabarmati ashram. Suddenly one ashramite came running, shouting, “Oh, I am dying! Something is happening in my stomach!”
Gandhiji soon got up and went to him. He took him aside, made him lie down and started curing him, trying to understand what had happened. After sometime, when he returned to the session of the executive council, which was made up of eminent leaders, someone jokingly commented, “How Bapu pampers such a mad person at an important time!”
Bapu quietly said, “Who else are going to come to me except the mad? Since he came to me, therefore he is my family member. A family member has the first right on me here.”
