From the very first day of my stay with him Gokhale made me feel completely at home. He treated me as though I were his younger brother. He acquainted himself with all my requirements and arranged to see that I got all I needed. Fortunately my wants were fewand as I had cultivated the habit of self — help. I needed very little personal attendance. He was deeply impressed with my habit of tending for myself, my personal cleanliness, perseverance and regularity, and would often overwhelm me with praise.

He seemed to keep nothing private from me. He would introduce meto all the important people that called on him. This is howhe introduced Dr. Ray: “This is Prof. Ray who having a monthly salary of Rs. 800. keeps just Rs.40 for himself and devotes the balance to public purposes. He is not. and does not want to get "married.”

To see Gokhale at work was as much a joy as an education. He never wasted a minute. His private relations and friendships were all for public good. India’s poverty and subjection were matters of constant and intense concern to him.
