This chapter discusses Jamnalal’s final efforts towards Gandhi’s civil disobedience campaign. It starts by examining the Gandhi Seva Sangh, the organization that Jamnalal helped set up through his generous donation. The Sangh was completely devoted to Gandhi’s constructive programme, and explored some of the problems related to the application of ahmisa. It then notes that Gandhi and the Indian National Congress sympathized with the Second World War victims and denounced the Nazi and Fascist regimes. The chapter then examines the problems that surrounded Gandhi’s desire to start the civil disobedience campaign during the war. Finally, the chapter discusses Jamnalal’s experience in the Nagpur jail—where he was imprisoned after he offered to provide civil disobedience—and his conversations with Vinoba Bhave.

Keywords:   civil disobedience campaign, Gandhi Seva Sangh, constructive programme, ahmisa, Indian National Congress, Nazi and Fascist regimes, Second World War
