Heynes on Gandhi - 1931
Gandhi has more than once been described as “an ugly little man” but nothing could be farther from the truth. I was struck by the vivid color of his rich brown complexion against the pure white of his Khaddar shawl. His smile as he talked was like a burst of sunshine, and always as he sat there was a figure of supreme dignity and poise.
There is no ugliness in this man; There is dignity, grace and benevolence and these are qualities of beauty...
Once you have seen Gandhi, caught his smile and felt his hand clasp, you find it easy to understand why today he has millions of Indians and millions of other men elsewhere at his feet.”
