Gandhi makes it clear that money and finance are a secondary aspect of the struggle in Champaran. Comment on the aspect that you think was most important for Gandhi.


Answer – 

Gandhiji’s perseverance, determination, and resolve led to his success in Champaran. He went to Champaran at the request of an illiterate peasant named Raj Kumar Shukla. There he listened to sharecroppers’ grievances and launched the Civil Disobedience Movement. He was victorious, and the landlords relinquished their claims to their estates, which were returned to the farmers. They gained courage and realized that they, too, could defend themselves. The landlords were forced to give up some of their money and prestige. As a result, Gandhiji broke the impasse between farmers and landlords.
