From the Archives (October 7, 1919): Mr. Gandhi’s Papers.


Bombay, October 7. — The Office of the weekly paper “Young India” edited by Mr. M.K. Gandhi has been transfered from Bombay to Ahmedabad City. A press has been purchased at Ahmedabad where Mr. Gandhi’s new Guzrati weekly paper “Navajivan” and also the “Young India” will be printed. Before the District Magistrate of Ahmedabad Mr. Shankarlal, banker, declared himself as keeper of the press and printer and Messrs. Indulal Yajuik and Mahadev H. Desai as publisher of the “Navajivan” and “Young India” respectively. The Magistrate has dispensed with security in each case. Mr. Gandhi writes in the “Navajivan” thanking for messages of congratulations he received from all quarters on his birthday. He would have been pleased, he says, if the money spent on letters and telegrams were devoted towards purchasing cloth for the indigent and feeding the poor. He says he appreciated discriminating and wise affection and not blind affection.
