Gandhiji marrates chief objections to the proposed bill (1935) to give a new constitution to India, exposes the hollowness of its claims of advance and shows how if falls short of expectations even of the Liberal Party. Gandhiji makes it clear that the British ministers may be honest in their intentions and so Gandhiji has not bitterness in his heart but then political India does not agree with them. (A clear cut and able exposition of congress stand against the new constitution of 1937)

No body has a right to call another man a sinful man becanse everybody is full of sins; and because nobody can guage the sins of himself or of others. God alone knowefforts. So let man not be the judge of sins. He should only forgive them. This is the ossense of non-violence.

I am inquiring about Jugal Kishore's paper. Do not delay weaving Khadi till your mill saries are exhaused. My son Manilal attached your brother Maharaj Singh in his paper "Indian Opinion" in spite of restraints placed by me. Prosecuting the Harijans should not be resorted to as the caste Hindus will always instigate them to break the Sarda Act. Mere defiance of law has ceased to be a wrong in itself.

Narandas writes to me stating that whatever we have read or thought will not be of any use. It is not true. One whose mind is fixed on God has no old age. The body may grow old but mind remains fresh. The soul will ultimately merge in God. The chanting of God's name will result in that state. The mind will become purifued. The feeling of "I" will disappear.
