Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the successes of Gandhi’s mass movement, which was aimed at ending the British rule in India. This movement was an open, non-violent rebellion, and was called the non-cooperation movement. Gandhi insisted that his fight was not with the British individuals, but with the ‘system’. The chapter also looks at Jamnalal’s appointment as Congress Treasurer upon the recommendation of Gandhi and the changes the non-cooperation movement brought to Jamnalal’s life. These changes also affected his family businesses, which seized to be his main preoccupation. The chapter includes some of the letters exchanged between Jamnalal and his wife, Jankidevi, when Gandhi sent him on tours or special missions. Gandhi’s campaign for mass civil disobedience is also discussed.

Keywords: Gandhi’s mass movement; non-cooperation movement; Jamnalal as Congress Treasurer; Jankidevi; special missions; mass civil disobedience
