19. A Cabinman's Rush

During Gandhiji's journey from Bombay to Delhi in April 1946 when his special train arrived near Gangapur station on the Western railway line, a young Muslim cabinman on duty there had the train stopped by not giving signal for the train to pass.

The cabinman then rushed towards Gandhiji's compartment for his Darshan.

Addressing Gandhiji this young man said, "Since all these years I was eagerly waiting for your Darshan. My desire has been fulfilled today. Please keep us in your mind in your mission at Delhi."
