Sarala Devi: A first person account of Gandhi

Sarala Devi's eye-witness account of Gandhiji in Orissa. She was the first satyagrahi there to court arrest.

"On his visit to Orissa, he first arrived in Cuttack city. From then onward, I became his follower and fully dedicated my life for his cause. I was inspired by him and left home to free Mother India from the shackles of the foreign rule. His spirit of sacrifice made me forget my surroundings, and the exigencies of my worldly life. Gandhiji gave me a new lease of life."
