"In 1930, Gandhi had achieved a hugely popular success with his triumphal Salt March. The beleaguered powers retaliated with a series of mass imprisonments. Gandhi spent nine months in prison, but it was a victory. Sixty thousand prisoners would be released with him.After his release, he made a solemn vow not to return to his Sabarmati Ashram, near Ahmedabad, whilst India was not liberated. He travelled, as if to reinforce this idea, over and over again, that the struggle was not going to play out in the cities, but in the villages of rural India. He had already been developing this idea for years. More than a theory, it was a shining certainty that made him walk to meet his countrymen."
