NEW DELHI,

December 19, 1947

CHI. CHIMANLAL,

I have had a full discussion with Aryanayakum. I suggested to
him that although you were the lawful manager he should regard
himself as the de facto manager and act accordingly. It means no one
should lay claim to that part of the Ashram which he requires for the
Talimi Sangh. If he asks all the inmates of the Ashram to leave, no
one should stay on. He does believe that there is no difference
between the inmates of the Ashram and the members of the Talimi
Sangh or between the Ashram and the Talimi Sangh. He cannot do
any good to the Talimi Sangh at the cost of that of the Ashram. I
accept this fact in whatever I do, so should all of us. Moreover, he says
that neither Jaju nor Krishnadas has the slightest misunderstanding
about or mistrust of him, which they earlier had. I asked him to
convey all this to you. I also asked him to write you a letter to this
effect. He said that there was no need for a letter. Tell me if you wish
to have any change in this. Tell me also if there has been any change.

When the addressee and her mother failed to arrive at Delhi as scheduled on
the 17th, Gandhiji had jocularly remarked: “Someone might have thrown Chand out
mistaking her to be a Punjabi.”

THE COLLECTED WORKS OF MAHATMA GANDHI

You are likely to have seen something about Chand in the
newspapers. It’s a sad story. I cannot dictate any more.
