Speech At Prayer Meeting
 

Click here for original speech
in Hindi in Gandhi's voice
NEW DELHI,
January 16, 1948


BROTHERS AND SISTERS,

I had not hoped to be able to speak to you today. But you will be glad to know that today by Godís grace I feel my voice is stronger than it was yesterday. During all my previous fasts I never felt as strong as I am feeling today on the fourth day of the fast. My hope is that if you will continue the yajna of self-purification my strength to address you can remain to the end. I may say that I am in no hurry at all. Hurry will not help our work. I feel ineffable peace. I do not want that anyone should do anything incompletely and tell me that everything is all right. When there is perfect peace in Delhi there will be peace all over India. I have no wish to live if I cannot see peace established all round me, in India as well as in Pakistan. This is the meaning of this yajna.
