Abhay would think of engaging Mahatma Gandhi in devotional service. He wrote a letter to the mahatma on December 7th 1947, addressing himself as an unknown friend, “I tell you as a sincere friend that you must immediately retire from active politics, if you do not desire an inglorious death, and engage in understanding and preaching Bhagavad-gita.” Abhay never received a reply, but one month later, on January 30, Gandhi was assassinated.
