In this conversation with the author in the early 1930s, Mahatma Gandhi puts forward his thesis on the subject of art; he believes in the art of the people, produced in the villages. He retains faith in the human element in artistic creations, and opposes an over-dependence on the machine. The author explains the simplicity of the village woman, the Mahatma's apperceptions about the integral village society and Nehru's declaration of the destination man ideal for the advance of civilization.
