In Gandhi’s Footsteps

This chapter discusses the effects Jamnalal’s public responsibilities had on his family. It studies his transformation into a man who placed his family second, which began even before he joined the non-cooperation movement. It then describes the impact Gandhi’s presence had on Jamnalal’s life through a comparison of the contents of the wills that he executed before and after he became a devoted follower of Gandhi. The next section looks at Jamnalal’s efforts to draw Vinoba Bhave into public life, who eventually became the guru of Jamnalal’s children. It examines the letters Jamnalal exchanged with his older son, Kamalnayan, with regard to the latter’s desire to study in London and travel the world. Finally, the chapter demonstrates how Jamnalal was translating the ideas of Gandhi into his public and private lives.

Keywords:   Jamnalal’s family life, non-cooperation movement, Vinoba Bhave, Jamnalal’s public life, Kamalnayan, ideas of Gandhi, private life
