Anjaria writes: ‘When the history of economic thought in India in recent times comes to be written Gandhi’s name will certainly occupy a place of honour in it.’1 But he hastened to add: ‘It does not matter in this context whether we call Gandhi an economist or not; that is, partly at any rate, a question of definition of terms.’2 A study of Gandhi’s economic ideas must in some way come to grips with this question.
