story – It is about those days when Mahatma Gandhi was traveling across the country to spread the charkha. People gathered in large numbers on their demand.
Gandhiji’s aim was that all people use indigenous goods. One day Gandhiji’s journey was going on, at that time great people were around him. During this time an old lady who was almost like a beggar was shouting that I have to see Gandhiji.
Seeing the pressure of the old lady, the workers gave him a way to reach Gandhiji. He spread the feet of Gandhiji and she started to open her lap. It was taking him a while, but Gandhi ji was in a hurry too, the activists said, ‘hurry mai hai’.
Some people were saying that what will this old lady give from this torn up area? Gandhi’s time is being destroyed, but Gandhiji silenced everyone and said, ‘Let this Mai do what she wants to do.’
The old lady took out a coin and placed it in Gandhi’s hand. He said, “That’s what I have, to give.”
Gandhiji dug that coin in his back. Jamnalal was the treasurer of Bajaj Gandhi. He used to keep wealth only. He said, ‘Bapu, big checks, big amount you give me and I keep it. You trust me, so why have you kept this coin with you? For the first time it has happened that you have kept the money with you.
Gandhiji said, ‘Listen to all of you, I am given a lot of money by big people. Ordinary people also give, but the money this old Mai has given is its entire capital. The importance is of what amount the donor is giving. Whoever is ready to give everything, he should be respected.
Learning – We may have more or less money, but donations should be made with an open heart. Donation should not be negotiated. Do not do any maths in charity. Donation is a matter of helping the needy people selflessly.
