If India adopted the doctrine of love as an active part of her religion and introduced it in her politics. Swaraj would descend upon India from heaven. But I am painfully aware that that event is far off as yet.

A man known to us only as a celebrity in politics or in trade, gains largely in our esteem if we discover that he has some intellectual taste or skill
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Politics is the gizzard of society, full of gut and gravel.
Henry David Thoreau

Politics, like religion, hold up the torches of martyrdom to the reformers of error.
