18. Life Insurance

"Have you insured your life?" asked an Agra friend of Gandhiji.

This was Gandhiji's reply ; "I did insure my life in 1901 and a short time after I gave up the policy because I felt that I was distrusting God and making my relatives, in whose behalf the policy was taken, dependent upon me or the money I might leave them, rather than upon God or themselves. The opinion arrived at when I gave up the policy has been confirmed by subsequent experience."
