MOTILAL NEHRU

The Consequence

The expenses were cut down; but yet money was needed to maintain the family. But its bank balance was waning. There was no income as Motilal had given up his practice. He had to borrow money. Seeing this a rich man known to Motilal came forward to give financial help. Motilal's pride and sense of self-respect would not allow him to accept such help. Could a tiger feed on grass?

One client offered a fee of one lakh and entreated Motilal to take up his case. Going to a court of law was against the principle of non-cooperation. Motilal's little daughter was then sifting by his side. He asked her, "What do you say, my dear, shall I take this money?"

"No, daddy, don't," said the little o And that was a command.

Jawaharlal was not earning. He was then the Secretary of the Congress. He could have got a salary. Even Gandhiji told him to take it. But Motilal did not consent.
