One of his ADC’s (Aides-de-Camp) forgot to shave that morning and joined Rajaji at breakfast. Rajaji, who led a dry sense of humour, decided to teach the young man a lesson in a rather amusing way.

I am sorry you are not well this morning’, he said to the young ADC, you look very sick., you must see a doctor immediately. I suggest you skip breakfast today.’ Thus dismissed, the young man went to his room and stood in front of mirror to find out what was wrong with him. He then realised he had not shaved that morning.
