Generosity

Mahatma Gandhi went from city to
city, village to village collecting funds
for the Charkha Sangh. During one of
his tours he addressed a meeting in
Orissa. After his speech a poor old
woman got up. She was bent with age,
her hair was grey and her clothes were
in tatters. The volunteers tried to stop
her, but she fought her way to the
place where Gandhiji was sitting. "I
must see him," she insisted and going
up to Gandhiji touched his feet. Then
from the folds of her sari she brought
out a copper coin and placed it at his
feet. Gandhiji picked up the copper
coin and put it away carefully. The
Charkha Sangh funds were under the
charge of Jamnalal Bajaj. He asked
Gandhiji for the coin but Gandhiji
refused. "I keep cheques worth
thousands of rupees for the Charkha
Sangh," Jamnalal Bajaj said laughingly
"yet you won't trust me with a copper
coin." "This copper coin is worth much
more than those thousands," Gandhiji
said. "If a man has several lakhs and
he gives away a thousand or two, it
doesn't mean much. But this coin was
perhaps all that the poor woman
possessed. She gave me all she had.
That was very generous of her. What a
great sacrifice she made. That is why I
value this copper coin more than a
crore of rupees."
