Audio: Sarojini Naidu
Card sent to Mr. Jinnah, 1917.
[Question: Some say Sarojini Naidu was once in love with Jinnah. She sent him a picture in his family albums at the National Archives in Islamabad . . ..]|
"Not at all. These people were advanced, progressive and they were in the company of men. Such gestures did not mean anything more than what is said.
She was a delightful person. My grandmother used to call Mrs. Naidu her daughter, she adopted her. Mrs. Naidu used to spend months in Bhopal, so we got to know her very well. She was a very charming, very sweet person, She was not at all that type of woman who would flirt and have eyes on Mr. Jinnah or anything. I don't think so."
