1. Gandhi wore a short dhoti without a shirt when he went to England for the Round Table Conference in 1931.

2. He refused to compromise and wore it even before King George V at Buckingham Palace.

3. When he was asked by journalists whether he was wearing enough clothes to go before the King, he joked that ‘‘the King has enough on for both of us.’’ This was the reason for Gandhi’s witty remark about his dress.
