Gandhiji’s loyalty was not a loyalty to abstractions; it was a loyalty to living human beings. Why did Gandhiji continue his stay in Champaran even after indigo sharecropping disappeared?


Answer – 

Gandhiji remained in the region after the Champaran battle was won and the land was returned to the peasants. His loyalty was towards the living human beings, and he realized that much needed to be done for the upliftment of the peasants in Champaran’s villages. Gandhiji took the initiative and began working to eliminate their cultural and social backwardness. Primary schools were established to educate poor peasants and their children.

Gandhiji made an appeal to teachers, and many of his followers, including his wife and son, volunteered for the job. The area’s health conditions were also deplorable. Gandhiji persuaded a doctor to volunteer his services for six months.
