A story about Mahatma Gandhi and a woman who asked him to tell her son to stop eating sugar. Gandhi told the woman and her son to return in a week. When they did so, Gandhi told her son to stop eating sugar. The woman asked: "Mahatma, why didn’t you tell him last week?" Gandhi replied: "Because I was still eating sugar last week."
