  2. I read that Gandhi refused to meet Charlie before his disciple told him that Chalie also understand the poverty as much as him.

    1. Yes, Gandhi thought he was a "buffoon" and didn't see any point in going to meet him until one of his secretaries pointed out that Chaplin understood and honored poor people in his films.
