This chapter focuses on Gokhale’s visit to England to canvass support for his Education Bill. It also describes his speech about the inevitability of Indian self-government. Lord Crewe, who was the Secretary of State, had ridiculed that school of political thought in India which cherished the dream of dominion self-government. Gokhale’s friendship with Edwin Montagu, the youthful Under-Secretary of State for India, who seemed to be brimming over with energy and ideas, is spoken about in this chapter. Gokhale’s appointment to the Royal Commission on the Public Services in India also finds mention here. Gokhale could hardly have imagined the deep distrust and even dread with which some of the members of the Government of India regarded him, but he knew he was no favourite of the Raj.
