He was strong and handsome, dressed in yellow, the holy colour, his body anointed with sacramental sandal paste. Who did that? Hunger has driven farmers into robbery. These days, who is not a robber? We ourselves robbed to eat today. We deprived the British chief of police of his two maunds of rice for our meal. I have left them at the ashram.
Now, I assign you to find Mahendra Singh for his wife and child. Jiban alone will be able to take care of the duties here and win success. Mahatma Satya departed. He decided to go into the town, and from there to search for his wife and child with the help of government officials.
He had not gone far when he found a bullockcart trudging along with a heavy guard of sepoys of the British army of occupation.
The British had long been expert in collecting revenue. At different centres they had their collectors who realised taxes and revenues to be shipped to the treasury of the East India Company in Calcutta. Thousands of men, women and children might die of starvation; yet there must be no cessation in the collection of taxes. This years collection, however, fell short of expectations.
If mother earth refused to yield wealth, humans could not create it. All that could be collected, however, was being shipped at once to the British treasuries in Calcutta. In those days robberies were so prevalent that the bullock-carts bearing the tax money were guarded by fifty fully armed sepoys with bayonets drawn. Their captain was an Englishman, who rode a horse in the 45 rear. During the daytime the heat was so great that the sepoys were forced to travel by night.
Confronted with this procession of the tax-cart and its guards, Mahendra stepped aside. The sepoys spotted him. Realising that it was not the time for quarrels, Mahendra moved to the edge of the jungle. When the sepoy saw the rifle in Mahendras hands, he was all the more convinced of this.
He rushed towards Mahendra, shook him by the shoulders, called him thief, struck him and snatched the rifle away from him. Mahendra, furious with anger, returned a mighty blow.
The sepoy reeled under Mahendras blow and fell unconscious on the road. Three others then grabbed Mahendra, and dragged him forcibly to the English captain, alleging that he had killed a soldier with one blow. The English captain was smoking his pipe, and under the influence of liquor. He said stupidly: 'Catch that villain and marry him.
How could they marry a male armed robber! They hoped the captain would, of course, change his order when he became sober.
So they tied Mahendra's hands and feet and placed him on the bullock-cart. Mahendra knew it was useless to exert his strength against such odds. And again, what would he gain by freedom? He was so sad at his separation from his wife and child that he cherished no desire to prolong his life.
The sepoys tied Mahendra well and routinely proceeded along the road as before. He followed such a route that very soon he, too, faced the sepoys and the tax-cart. He, too, stepped aside as Mahendra had done. But the suspicion of the sepoys was now so aroused that they at once seized Bhavan. How can I be a robber? Do I look like one? In the dark Bhavan's eyes flashed with anger.
But he controlled himself, and said with much humility, 'My Lord, deign to command, and your orders shall be obeyed at once. Tie him tight in the spot where the other robber lies. So he dropped the load from his head, and slapped the sepoy who tried to put it the load back on 47 his head. The sepoy then tied him hand and foot, and threw him beside the other captive. Bhavan recognised Mahendra Singh. The sepoys became noisy again and the wheels of the cart began screeching. It is not necessary now that you know who I am.
Please do as I tell you; and do it carefully. Place the knot of the rope that ties your hands on the moving wheel of the cart. Moving a little in the dark, he pressed the knot against the wheel. The knot was soon cut by the friction. In the same way he freed his feet. Thus freed, he lay quiet on the cart beside Bhavan, until Bhavan, too, had freed himself.
Both kept silent. The sepoys had to pass by the hill from where the Mahatma had reconnoitered the landscape. The moment the sepoys reached the spot, they noticed a man standing on a mound at the foot of the hill. We will make him carry some of our things. The sepoy caught him, and the man said nothing. The sepoy brought him to the lieutenant.
Still the man did not utter a word. The lieutenant ordered that a bundle be placed upon the man's head. It was done. The lieutenant turned and walked alongside the 48 moving cart.
Just then the sound of a pistol shot was heard.
The lieutenant, shot in the head, fell on the road. In a moment he was dead. A sepoy caught the silent man by his hand and said: This bandit has killed the lieutenant.
He threw down the bundle from his head; and struck the sepoy with the butt end of his pistol. The sepoys head was fractured, and he could not molest the man anymore. As if at a signal, two hundred armed men rushed out of the jungle and surrounded the sepoys with victory calls. The sepoys were awaiting the arrival of their English captain. An Englishman never stays drunk when danger comes.
The captain, suspecting bandits, had rushed to the cart and at once ordered his sepoys to form themselves into a column. The column formation was instantly executed. Then at the second command the sepoys pointed their rifles. All of a sudden someone snatched the captains sword away from his belt; and in a second cut off his head. The captain fell headless on the road, and his order to fire remained unuttered.
A man, standing on the cart, was waving a blood-stained sword in the air as he shouted: 'Victory, victory! Kill the sepoys, kill the sepoys. The sepoys were terror-stricken and helpless for a moment to see their English captain's head so dramatically chopped off. Taking advantage of this hesitation the energetic invading forces killed or wounded many of them.
Then they approached the 49 tax-cart and took possession of the boxes full of coins. Defeated and discouraged the remnant of the sepoys ran away in all directions. The man who had first stood up on the mound and had then taken the leadership in the fight approached Bhavan.
They embraced each other affectionately. Then Jiban began making preparations for the removal of the treasure to its proper place. And soon he departed with his attendants for another destination.
Bhavan stood there alone. But at second thought he felt convinced that these new people were really robbers. They had attacked the sepoys only for money. So he stepped aside, feeling that if he helped the robbers in any way he would have to bear a share of the sin of this hold-up.
When the fight was over, he threw the sword aside, and began slowly to walk away. It was then that Bhavan walked towards him, and stood close to him. It is not necessary for you to know that.
I am gready indebted to you today. You are a wealthy zamindar. In consuming lavish dishes for breakfast, luncheon and dinner you are second to none. Yet when it comes to doing something useful, you are nothing better than a baboon. But you cannot deny the fact that we did some good to you and may render further favours. But what more can you do for me? And again, it is certainly correct behaviour not to accept favours from robbers.
But you may come with me if you so desire. I want you to meet your wife and child again. Bhavan said no more, but started walking. Mahendra, of course, followed him while he thought within himself: 'These are strange robbers indeed!
Mahendra was silent and sad. He was also curious. Bhavan, on the other hand, suddenly changed himself into a different personality. He was no longer the quiet and grave holy man nor the heroic warriorslayer of the English captain. He was no longer the proud chastiser of Mahendra Singh. He seemed to have been uplifted into supreme joyousness by the unique grandeur of the enchanting panorama. He smiled as the ocean smiles at the rising of the moon.
He grew jubilant, talkative and most cordial. He seemed very anxious to talk. In various ways he tried to engage Mahendra in a conversation. When he failed, he sang softly to himself: 'Mother, hail! Thou with sweet springs flowing, Thou fair fruits bestowing, Cool with zephyrs blowing, Green with corn-crops growing, Mother, hail!
He was also at a loss to know for whom these sweet attributes were meant and who this mother was! This refers to a country, and not to a mortal mother, I see,' Mahendra remarked. The Motherland is our only mother. Our Motherland is higher than heaven. Mother India is our mother. We have no other mother. We have no father, no brother, no sister, no wife, no children, no home, no hearth — all we have is the Mother: With sweet springs flowing, Fair fruits bestowing, Cool with zephyrs blowing, Green with corn-crops growing —.
Mother, hail! Thou with sweet springs flowing, Thou fair fruits bestowing, Cool with zephyrs blowing, 53 Green with corn-crops growing, Mother, hail! Thou of the shivering joyous moon-blanched night, Thou with fair groups of flowering tree-clumps bright, Sweedy smiling Speech beguiling Pouring bliss and blessing, Mother, hail!
Though now million voices through thy mouth sonorous shout, Though million hands hold thy trenchant sword blades out, Yet with all this power now, Mother, wherefore powerless thou? Holder thou of myriad might, I salute thee, saviour bright, Thou who dost all foes afright, Mother, hail!
Thou sole creed and wisdom art, Thou our very mind and heart, And the life-breath in our bodies. Thou as strength in arms of men, Thou as faith in hearts dost reign.
Himalaya-crested one, rivalless, Radiant in thy spotlessness, Thou whose fruits and waters bless, Mother, hail! Who are the Children? Whose children are you? What kind of mother-worship is this? Whose money did we capture? What right has an English King to the wealth of our land? Original translation mentioned three hundred million voices and twice three hundred million hands.
In conformity with the translation in the official Indian website, this edition says simply million voices and million hands. It is to be noted that earlier translations like that of Rishi Aurobindo said saventy million voices and twice seventy million hands. We encountered quite a few today, you know' 'You have not faced them yet. Some day you will really know them. A man never dies more than once in one life.
Now I see you are just like any other habitual gourmand. Look here, Mahendra Singh, the serpent crawls on its breast in order to move about. It is the lowest of animals in creation. And yet, if you tread on a snake it raises its head to bite you. But nothing can disturb your criminal composure! Can you find another country on earth outside India where human beings are forced by starvation to live on grass?
Here in India famine-stricken people today are eating creepers, ant-hills, jackals, dogs and even human flesh! And the British are shipping our wealth to their treasuries in Calcutta; and from there that wealth is to be shipped again to England. There is no hope for India until we drive the British out. Only then will the Motherland live again. Yes, most decidedly. The bullet does not travel faster nor further because a stronger man fires a rifle.
The Indian soldier runs away when he begins to perspire; he seeks cold drinks. The Englishman surpasses the Indian in tenacity.
He never abandons his duty before he finishes it. Then consider the question of courage: A cannon ball falls only on one spot. But a whole company of Indian soldiers would run away if one single cannon ball fell among them. On the other hand, British soldiers would not run away even if dozens of cannon balls should fall in their midst.
We have to acquire them by patient practice and unyielding perseverance. But our renunciation is only for this practice. When we have mastered all techniques, and attained our goal, we shall return to our homes for our duties as householders.
We, too, have wives and children at home.
But have you been able to free yourselves from the ties of love and affection? Who can free himself from all the ties of love and affection? The man who claims to do that, never knew what those ties were.
We do not pretend to be above all attachment. We simply observe the sanctity of our vows. Would you like to join the order of the Children? Bhavan sang the Bande Mataram again. Since Mahendra was versed in music and was also a good singer, he joined Bhavan in the song.
His eyes became wet with tears as he sang. He said gently: If I do not have to give up my wife and daughter, you may initiate me as a Child. If you really wish to join the order, you cannot ever be with your wife and child.
Everything will be properly arranged for their sustenance and protection. But it is forbidden for you even to look at their faces until you have attained the goal of your mission. The forest blossomed again with daylight, and began to echo with the music of the birds.
On such a joyous morning, and in such a joyous forest and inside the ashram of the Mother, Mahatma Satya sat on a deer skin deep in meditation. Jiban sat near him. At that moment Bhavan reached the ashram with Mahendra Singh. In absolute silence the Mahatma continued his morning meditation, quite oblivious to the presence of anyone near him. The meditation over, both Bhavan and Jiban bowed to the Mahatma and sat beside him in all humility.
Mahendra sat beside Bhavan. After a brief period of silence Mahatma Satya took Bhavan away. We do not know what they talked of; but they both soon returned.

It was only by the grace of God that I was able to save your wife and child yesterday. After this he said: 'Come with me, Mahendra, I shall now take you to them.
The room was dark, even though the landscape outside was glowing like a diamond in the sun. At first Mahendra could not see what there was in the room. It was a gigantic, imposing, resplendent, yes, almost a living map of India. This is our Mother India as she was before the British conquest,' the Mahatma said. Only one ray of light entered it, so it was sad and gloomy.
The Abbey Of Bliss (Anandamath)
There Mahendra saw a map of India in rags and tatters. The gloom over this map was beyond description. And she can be freed only by the sword. Those who talk of winning India's independence by peaceful means do not know the British, I am sure. Please say Bande Mataram. They went through another dark tunnel and suddenly faced a heavenly light inside another room. The effulgence of the light was radiating from the map of a golden India — bright, beautiful, full of glory and dignity!
Mahendra was moved. Tears flooded his eyes as he asked: 'When, O Master, when shall we see our Mother India in this garb again — so radiant and so cheerful? You will meet them soon. I do not know where to find a home for them in these dire days of famine and plague. At the gate of the ashram you will find your wife and child waiting for you. Kaiyani has not eaten a morsel so far.
You will find food where she is. Feed Kaiyani first, and after that you may do as you please. At this time you will not see any of us anymore. If you do not change your mind, I shall appear before you in proper time.
