This chapter considers the Indian problem in South Africa. The hope that Gokhale’s visit to South Africa would be a turning point in the solution of the Indian question proved illusory. The improvements which Gokhale and Gandhi had expected in the Immigration Regulation Bill were not realized. Nor was there any relaxation in the rigorous administration of the discriminatory laws against the Indians. It was not the official envoy of the Viceroy but Gokhale’s personal envoy, C.F. Andrews, who was to take a hand in the negotiaitions which culminated in the Gandhi–Smuts agreement. On 25 January 1914, Gandhi cabled to Gokhale that the provisional agreement with Smuts had been reached and passive resistance was to be suspended pending legislation in the next session of Parliament.
