In the last months as viceroy, Curzon had so thoroughly alienated large sections of the Indian opinion that almost any viceroy succeeding him would have been popular. Lord Minto did not have Curzon’s dominating personality, intellectual stamina, or demoniac energy, but he was also free from his predecessor’s flamboyance, conceit, and irascibility. Soon after his arrival in India, the new viceroy stumbled upon the key to popularity which had eluded Curzon for six years. This chapter describes Minto’s dealings with Gokhale. It also details Gokhale’s trip to England in 1906.

Keywords:   Gopal Krishna Gokhale, Lord Minto, Curzon, popularity, trip to England
