Gandhi and the ‘KETTLE’

During an examination in the school, Gandhi and other students were asked to write five words as a spelling exercise. One of the words was ‘kettle’. Gandhi didn’t know the spelling of ‘kettle’ He had misspelled it. The teacher noticed the incorrect spelling and prompted Gandhi to copy the correct one from the neighbor’s slate. Later, when the teacher asked him why he didn’t copy from the student sitting next to him, He said “I’d Rather Be Wrong Than Cheat. “ I never could learn the art of ‘copying’. ”
