I am a plain person. I have merely spoken out my mind. I do not say you should believe what I have said because it alone is certain. Accept such ideas as can be accepted, with the help of your reason, after a sound enquiry. Reject the rest.
Do not for any reason bestow upon me any traits that are beyond human characteristics. If I were to be considered divine, people will not inquire into my words.
I will not subject you to a restraint, in the manner of scriptures and ancient works, by stating that you should trust what I say, that my words are Apocalyptic; and that if you do not believe me, you will become atheists and go to Hell. If what I say is not agreeable to your instinct, knowledge, experience and inquiry, reject it.
Every one has the right to refute any opinion. But no one has the right to prevent its expression.
I express, plainly and openly, thoughts which occur to me, and which strike me as right. This may embrrass a few; to some this may be distastefule; and a few others may even be irritated; however, all that I utter are porven turths and not lies.Not that all the people of the world should act according to my wish, but that come what may, surely in politics and in public life, human justice alone not justice as prescribed by any epoch or religion. Should be imposed; such is my desire.
Decide for yourselves as to what you should thing of those who say there is God, that He is a the Preserver of Justice an that He is the Protector of All, even after seeing that the practice of Untouchablity in the form of man being banned from human sight and contac, from walkinh into the streets, from entering the temples and drawing water from a tank, is rampant in the land and yet that land is spared from being razed by an earthquake, burnt by the fiery lava of a volcano, engulfed in a deluge from the ocean, submerged in the chasm of the earth, or fragemented by thunder-storm.
We are fit to think of `Self-Respect’ only when the notion of superior ans inferior caste is banished from our land.
He who does not care for dignity, is no better than to a prostitute, however highly educated he is. His edcation will only endanger those that care for dignity.
The aim of co-operation is to serve and help others.
Who do spend wastefully, without thought. If we carry on our life through co-operative means, only one eighth of our present expenditure will be incurre. What remains can be helpful to seven more persons. If the conditions of our nation are not changed, it is certain that our life will soon come to ruin.
What should be done, If everyone is to have enough food?
If none consumes more than what is needed, then, there will be enough food for all
Though my aim is to demad economic equality, I belive that coveting other people’s properties is an act that is worse than economic inequality.Therefore, It is the Government that should divide equitably by Law.
Man treats woman as his own property and not as being capable of feelings, like himself.The way man treats women is much worse than the way landlords treat servants and the high-caste treat the low-caste. These treat them so demeaningly only in situations mutally affecting them; but men treat cruelly and as slaves, from their birth till death.
The number of thosewho do selfless public service and those who serve without expecting any return, should increase. Their sterling qualities should show the way to the people at large. Their life would be a model to show how man should conduct himself in public life.
