Gandhiji’s Ten Commandments - UK, 1928.

A caricature in a British journal in 1928 shows the reactions of a businessman and a politician to the standards Gandhi had set for his personal conduct. To these hardboiled characters, Gandhi was an impractical idealist, a view popular in the ruling circles in Britain. Writing in Young India the same year, Gandhi declared that his creed was non-violence "under all circumstances." He explained: "My method is conversion, not coercion, it is self-suffering, not the suffering of the tyrant. I know that method to be infallible."
