Willingdon Fasts - David Low in Evening Standard, London, England, 1932.

Willingdon is in a quandary over Gandhi's rejection of the provisional scheme of representation for the Indian minorities, known as the Communal Award, announced by MacDonald in London on August 17, 1932. Gandhi reiterated his decision, first conveyed to Sir Samuel Hoare, Secretary of State for India, on March 11, 1933, that he would "fast unto death" because separate electorates had been provided in the award for the Depressed Classes. Low shows Willingdon lying on a couch, in his full viceregal dress, staging a counter-fast while Gandhi squats in another corner of the room with his charkha and goat.
