Frontier Gandhi
When Gandhiji started Sevagram Ashram, he invited Khan Abdul Gaffar Khan popularly known as the Frontier Gandhi, to come and live with him for sometime. Gaffar Khan lived in the Adi Nivas in the ashram with Gandhiji. The Frontier Gandhi lead a simple life of an Ashramite. He used to serve the sick also besides attending to other duties. Though looking to his habits Gandhiji had permitted him to eat meat yet, he never ate any meat and followed the Ashram discipline. He lived like a villager and called himself 'A Servant of God'.
