    Sir M Vishveshvariah went to meet Gandhiji. He sat down on the chair offered to him. Gandhiji chuckled. Sir MV asked him why.

    Gandhiji replied you are wearing a suit carrying a gold handled cane and have a gold watch in your pocket so you have to sit on a chair. I'm like the poor in this couexntry who have only one cloth to wear and don't have a chair to sit on

    Sir MV replied - Mahatmaji - I'm the son of a poor temple priest who could hardly make two ends meet. I saw the Englishman ride in a carriage drawn by horses with a gold handled baton while all the people looking at him in awe.

    I decided that I should do better than him, so therefore I toiled hard, studied and earned this position.

    If all our countrymen think like you, in the future we will sit on the floor and others will rule us!
