Cripps returned to Delhi in March 1946 as a member of a British Cabinet Mission to negotiate with the Indian leaders. This time he brought no concrete proposal. Gandhi defined independence in Harijan as Ram Raj, a kingdom of God on earth. He added: "If the Cabinet Mission 'delivers the goods' India will have to decide whether, attempting to become a military power, she would be content to become at least for some years a fifth-rate power in the world without a message, or whether she will by further refining and continuing her non-violence policy proves herself to the world of being the first nation in the world using her hard-won freedom of the delivery of the earth which is crushing her in spite of the so-called declaration." Gandhi is shown in conversation with Cripps, a vegetarian like himself.
