Your Shout, Partner! - Gandhi: “One Club!” Jinnah: “Double!” Wavell: ? ? ? - Vikram Verma in Dawn, India, 1944.
Gandhi wrote to Jinnah in July 1942 suggesting that they meet for political talks. Jinnah invited Gandhi to meet him in Bombay in August. Gandhi's readiness to discuss Jinnah's demand for partitioning India created bewilderment and aroused bitter criticism. Master Tara Singh, leader of the Akali Dal said: "Should a settlement be reached over the head of the Sikhs, the reaction would be terrible." Gandhi, Rajagopalachari, Jinnah and Wavell are shown at a game of bridge. Gandhi's card is the charkha.
