Read The Signs 1941.

Sir C. P. Ramaswami Aiyer, Prime Minister of the southern State of Travancore, was one of the staunchest opponents of Gandhi's move to wrest more civil rights for the people living under princely rule. He described Gandhi's actions as outside interference. Gandhi replied on March 20, 1941, in an article entitled "Read the Signs": "The effort to ignore the Congress and the Congress workers and to prevent its national influence working in the States is like that of a child who by the little palm of his right hand tries to stop an onrushing flood."
