12. The day of the Silence

Gandhiji observed silence on every Monday. He won't talk to anybody on that day. He would not break this rule for any reason. He would write down if there were a need but won't speak at all.

He felt very peaceful due to this. There was nothing to be talked about on that day. Also there were no lectures to be delivered. Likewise, he also did not go for a walk on that day.

The peace gained from the silence-day used to comfort him a lot. But how did he use that comfort?

He would never waste the day keeping idle or sleeping. He used to finish the week's pending work on that day.

It is worth experiencing the joy of observing silence!
