[MOTIHARI,]

Posh Sud I [January 13, 1918]

BHAISHRI CHIMANLAL (CHINAIWALA),

I have your letter. It is our duty to help every class of workers. I
have no doubt about this. I have little faith in what goes under the
name of “co-operation”. I think our first task is to make a careful
survey of the conditions of the working class. What does the worker
earn? Where does he live? In what condition? How much does he
spend ? How much does he save ? What debts does he incur? How
many children has he? How does he bring them up? What was he
previously? What brought about the change in his life? What is his
present condition? It does not seem proper at all to start a co-operative
society straightway, without finding answers to all these questions. It is
necessary that we go into the midst of the working class. If we do, we
can solve a number of problems in a very short time. For the moment,
I should just advise you to mix with the workers and make yourself
familiar with their condition. More when we meet.
