At a talk last week at the London School of Economics, he was passionate and amusing, and it was uplifting to hear his respect and affection for one of the great moral figures of the last century. For several decades after his death, this episode was not widely known. The facts are that after his wife, Kasturba, died in , Gandhi began the habit of sharing his bed with naked young women: his personal doctor, Sushila Nayar, and his grandnieces Abha and Manu, who were then in their late teens and about 60 years younger than him. Nor, in any obvious way and so far as anyone can tell, did he begin one now. His conscious purpose in inviting naked women to share his bed was, paradoxically, to avoid having sex with them. Such a person, Gandhi wrote, would be incapable of lying or harming anyone. Why was this so important to Gandhi at that time? Because he believed — fantastically, egotistically — that the Hindu-Muslim violence then sweeping India had some connection to his own failings. As to any unconscious motivation for bed-sharing, who knows? His behaviour in the winter of shocked many of his followers.
