  • He arrives from a wide but negative point of view to the same conclusion as Sri Aurobindo regarding World War II, Cripps Mission, China's character, etc.
  • He was prophetic, wise, statesman-like in all areas where he was informed and experienced.
  • He and Radhakrishnan were the only two VIPs who came to Pondy and did not visit the Ashram.
  • His talents were great, intelligence was unsurpassed, sacrifice unparalleled. His petty mindedness robbed him of the greater possibilities.
  • He was campaigning for the untouchables as a complex.
  • His utterances always included a fake remark.
  • Even he could expect Indira to be a puppet in other's hands shows the length of folly the wisest man can indulge in.
  • His mind could see the other side of the issue shows he was trying to outgrow mind. His honesty at that flight deserted him.
  • Basically or psychologically he was more wise than honest.
  • His great energies were physical especially where he had power. There, like an ordinary inexperienced ignorant person, he was not under his control.
  • He won the arguments, turned the listener against him.
  • The treatment his colleagues and the country gave him was the same as he gave his father.
  • For a son of a father of Rs. 5/- pay, he was exceedingly generous with money.
  • He was perverse and delighted in it.
  • His modesty was ironic. His shyness made him charming.
  • Every village has at least one Rajaji. He is not unique in that sense. He represents the Indian wisdom. The important part of his personality is that he took risks at every stage which some Indians can take. Any Indian will take that risk if that education is given in an atmosphere of patriotic fervour.
