Subhas met Gandhi first time in July 1921
Subhas returned to India on July 16, 1921. Gandhiji was staying in the Laburnum Road and Subhas on meeting him engaged in a long conversation about his programmes and plans. He was not satisfied with the interview as he thought that Gandhiji did not have any concrete plan of India's future beyond the immediate activities. Gandhiji also sensed his disappointment and advised him to contact Chittaranjan Das. Subhas had stayed in the ashrama of Gandhiji for a night and also got acquainted with Kasturba, whom he called as "Mother".
