The year was 1921, when the Swadeshi Movement was at its peak. A young Durgabai (Durga) traveled to Rajamundry to attend her cousin’s marriage. A meeting with Mahatma Gandhi lit a fire and determination in the 12 year old Durga’s heart. She burned her party frocks, dropped out of school and joined the independence movement.
