Summary of 2019 JAMB Novel Sweet Sixteen Chapter IV: Gandhi Test.
The house of Mr. Bello definitely was not intended for a family of three given it’s elaborate structure of five bedrooms and three living rooms. Mr Bello travels a lot, he has been to quite a number of countries and he never fails to bring home souvenirs from his journey which he keeps in his miniature museum, a pretty place in his large house.
Mr. Bello does not like to eat in his room, he says it makes the whole place smell like food and so after his wife let’s him and aliya know that breakfast is ready, he announces that he is having his meal in the living room. The way Mr. Bello ate his bread and akara, sandwiched, made his wife tease him about having been raised in the village.
During breakfast of bread, akara and coke, which is Mr. Bello’s favourite weekend meal, Aliya asks him what he meant in his letter to her when he said if she was ever in doubt about right and wrong, she should apply the Gandhi test.
Mr. Bello explains that it simply means, according to mahatma Gandhi, that if a person is doing something and he or she does not mind other people knowing about it then its likely that what the person is doing is good but if that person is doing something that he or she would not want other people to know about then its most likely that what that person is doing is bad. He further says that some people have no shame and hence may not be bothered about people knowing the bad things they do, he, however describes such people as animals.
