Change Of Garb - J. Reynolds in Morning Post, London, England, 1931.

The key figures at the Round Table Conference were Gandhi, symbolizing India on the march towards the freedom that lay shrouded in the mists of the future, and Winston Churchill, the uncompromising arch-priest of empire. When the Gandhi-Irwin talks started in February 1931, he had fumed: "It is alarming and also nauseating to see Mr. Gandhi, a seditious Middle Temple lawyer, now posing as a fakir of a type well known in the East, striding up the steps of the Viceregal palace, while he is organizing and conducting a defiant campaign of civil disobedience, to parley on equal terms with the representative of the King-Emperor." Reynolds of the Morning Post pictures the two spokesmen of these diametrically opposed camps turning up at the conference after switching their customary dress.
