Modest Request - Ahmed in Pioneer, Lucknow, India, 1939.

Gandhi's wife Kasturba had lived her childhood in Rajkot. Though in poor health, she joined the civil disobedience movement in the State and was arrested early in February 1939. Throughout the country, there was an unprecedented stir in the princely States. Linlithgow toured them and their rulers announced democratic reforms, but at the same time suppressing popular agitation and organisations. Gandhi wrote: "The more I think of what is happening in the States in India, I see nothing but a dark future for this unhappy land if the paramount power remains a helpless witness of the tragedy that is being enacted. . ." Ahmed shows Gandhi and Sardar Patel calling on the Viceroy to help them curb the princes so that they might undermine the base of the British Raj.
