Mahatma Gandhi and C Rajagopalachari, the last Governor-General of India, were great men who wrote with conviction, former West Bengal Governor Gopalkrishna Gandhi said in Hyderabad today.
“M K Gandhi and C Rajagopalachari were like cloud and snow, ineffably clear, soft, pure. The cloud could turn grey, leaden grey. The snow could be hard, sharp and could also thaw. But both were linked in the way they moved, in their style, as to be mistaken one for the other, though they were so different,” a release quoted Gopalkrishna Gandhi as saying in a lecture at the University of Hyderabad on ‘The Literary Styles of M K Gandhi and C Rajagopalachari’.
Gopalkrishna Gandhi also said that Gandhiji and Rajagopalachari were not great writers but they were great men who wrote with conviction.
Gopalkrishna Gandhi is the grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, who was born to Devdas Gandhi and Rajagopalachari’s daughter Lakshmi.
