This book by Mr. Mahadev Desai, one of Mahatma Gandhi's trusted followers and his Private Secretary, describes the incidents that happened in some of India's villages when Gandhiji, toured them early in the year 1925. In this tour, he came across many classes of people, the poor and the down-trodden more than the rich, and the conversations he had with the villagers and the advice he gave them are described and reported in this book. The book reveals the problem of India in its many aspects, the identity of the essential features thereof in every province, the common bonds that bind people together in spite of their differences in language and other respects, their intensely spiritual outlook and their striking response to a movement which appealed to their higher mind instincts. Gandhi's own account of his tour and a few of Desai's articles in Young India have been included as an appendix.
