Gujarati Sahitya Parishad meeting was held under the Presidentship of Gandhiji at the Prembhai hall in Ahmedabad. The hall was over crowded. Gandhiji started his speech. There was noise ‘Mike!’ ‘Mike!’ from the audience.
Gandhiji stated, “Remain silent and hear. It will be heard. Can you hear me now?”
One worker, standing at the extreme behind, leaning the wall said, “No, it is not heard!”
Gandhiji, “Then how could you hear this and reply?”
There was a wave of laughter in the hall. The laughter subsided and left behind a pleasant silence.
