Gandhi's Views On Satyagraha
The Champaran Struggle
The Champaran struggle, of which
Rajendra Babu had written a detailed history. Here Satyagraha had actually to be
offered. Mere preparedness for it did not suffice, as powerful vested interests
were arrayed in opposition. The peace maintained by the people of Champaran
deserves to be placed on record. I can bear witness to the perfect non-violence
of the leaders in thought, word and deed. Hence it was that this age-long abuse
came to an end in six months.
