While Gandhiji was in Yeravda Jail in 1923, Kasturba with some members of the Ashram interviewed him. Gandhiji amongst other things asked about Jamnalalji and Vinoba, and he was told that they had gone to jail. He was exceedingly delighted with the news, but wondered why Kasturba herself was still free.
"They do not arrest me. What can I do?" said Kasturba.
