CHI. MAHAVIR,

May I treat your letter as a wedding invitation? I got the letters

of Maitri1

, Durga,2

and Satyadevi3

too.

I don’t have the time to reply to
all separately. May Durga and her husband enjoy a long life. It is my
wish and my blessing that they lead a simple life dedicated to service
and bring credit to the Ashram. I hope Durga will not forget me after
her marriage.

Maitri must get rid of her constipation. When is she to be
married? Don’t mind if there are no blood-relations. We should look
upon all as our relations. The distinction beween relations and others
is wholly a product of the mind.
Satyadevi has had a good dig at me. She seems to be reminding
me how I used to criticize her for her handwriting. I suppose she
merely wants to tell me thereby that she has defeated me. I should like
everybody to defeat me in a similar manner. May she be as pure of
heart as she is intelligent.

Blessings from

BAPU

[P.S.]

I shall be in Bombay on the 22nd. All of you will be able to see
me for a minute or two there. I shall be leaving for Borsad the same
night.
