11 Gandhi saw Hitler as the ultimate expression of violence, and thus only non-violence could effectively combat this kind of threat. If Hitler was beyond reach, this was not so for the millions of Germans who followed him. They could be touched, and empathic bonds built, he concluded. But few understood these details of Gandhi’s thinking. To many people, even his closest friends and admirers, Gandhi seemed erratic. Many feared that the old man was in decline. To an extent, Gandhi realized his own marginalization and therefore named Jawaharlal Nehru his successor in January 1942.

Gandhi instructed select individuals to provide civil resistance. The government swiftly arrested anyone they thought implicated. Both Mrs Pandit and her husband were incarcerated in this sweep. But as the war progressed, and Japan advanced toward British India’s eastern borders, Churchill (who had succeeded Chamberlain as the prime minister in 1940) grew more agitated about the chances of success. He desperately wanted to have India’s support. The Indian leadership was released in order to negotiate with Cripps in March 1942.
