Baiting The Lion - The journalist says: “My dear Gandhi, it’s dangerous to put your head in the lion’s mouth at this juncture.” Gandhi replies: “Oh, my friend, the tired lion can scarcely bite off my head.” - India/Florence, Italy, 1930.

A Gujarati daily, Navayug, reproduces a cartoon published in Florence, Italy, at the time of the first civil disobedience movement. A foreign journalist is interviewing Gandhi, who has stuck his head in the British lion's gaping mouth. The journalist says: "My dear Gandhi, it is dangerous to put your head in the lion's mouth at this juncture!' Gandhi replies: "Oh, my friend, the tired lion can scarcely bite off my head."
