14. Mahatma and the Capitalist

A big financier, a captain of business, put this question to Gandhiji once : "Do you want me or my money to the Nation's cause?"

"You," was the straight reply.

"What task would you assign me if I left off business and joined you?"

"The Spinning Wheel," replied Gandhiji as he plied the Charkha.
