Young India (October 1920)

The October 1920 issue of Young India (Vol. 3, No. 10) opens with a quote from J.T. Sunderland on the "meaning of India's demand for self-determination," excerpted from his feature article in the issue. Other articles include "The Co-operative Movement," "Indian Soldiers in Mesopotamia," "How Bombay Treats Textile Labor," "Blacker than the 'Black Hole'" (on the Calcutta Black Hole atrocity), "O'Flaherty on Indian Self-Government," "England and the Mohammedans," and "The Doctrine of the Sword," a reprint from Gandhi's weekly newspaper Young India. The exceptionally long editorial section contains the following headlines: "Daniel Webster on India," "Andrew Carnegie and India," "Mr. Asquith and India," "Henry George on India," "Civilizing the Hindus," "What Does India Want?," "No More Dictation, Please!," "Future Massacres in India," "India and the League of Nations," "Ireland and India," "Defense of Dyer," "The Englishmen Must Shoot," "Boycotting the Government." The art section, written by Ananda Coomaraswamy, features an essay and photograph of 12th century cooper sculpture of Siva as Nataraja, housed at the Madras Museum. On the back of the issue are two advertisements, one for The Opium Monopoly by Ellen N. La Motte, and another for lantern slides related to Jallianwala Park and the massacre.
