The August 1920 issue of Young India (Vol. 3, No. 8) features several articles, of which only two are not anonymous: "About a 'Tolerable Autocracy'" by Charles Edward Russell, "Tagore's Message" (featuring Rabindranath Tagore's response to the Jallianwala Bagh massacre), "The New Spirit in India," "Indians in British East Africa," and "India - A Factory of Skeletons." The issue also includes a larger than usual editorial notes section, featuring the following headlines: "Indian in U.S. Politic," "British Labor and India," "Indian Suffragettes," "A Serious Situation," "Britain and Turkey," "Moslem Migration," "Amnesty for India," "Barbarities in Fiji, Too," and two Jabez T. Sunderland authored editorials, "India's High Goal," and "Indian Situation in a Nutshell." The art section, written by Ananda Coomaraswamy, features a Mughal painting (1620-30) of Shah Jahan.
