“….Too close an embrace of the state might result in abandoning democracy”




“…..Only through socialistic bias given to the government will provide it with an organic and dynamic quality and make it truly democratic”




“…...Japan can easily build an oriental co-prosperity sphere in eastern Asia”




“…..An important consideration is the necessity to maintain the unity and compactness endowed by nature and culture. The attempt to vivisect India into Pakistan, Sikhistan, Azad Punjab, Dravidistan etc can have no justification on geographical grounds”




“…..It is imperative that we strongly oppose the idea that India cannot feed her millions on her own” (1940)




“…..To not see the fallacies of an aging system of Judiciary (copied from the British) is to be both redundant and shortsighted”




“…..In the history of the world, it is only Hinduism that gave not only to India but to all her neighbours an organic conception of society based upon economic as well as spiritual needs. It is the very antithesis of ‘The principle of accumulation based on inequality which is the vital part of the western order of our society’. It recognised frankly the hard fact that perfect equality in all spheres is impossible of attainment. Therefore it attempted to mitigate the evil consequences of great disparity by aiming at only the essentials. It reconciled the antagonism between rights and obligations, so that the individual by asserting his inherent rights might not break up social solidarity, nor could society impose such obligations as to cripple the spirit of individualism. Liberty and law were synthesised to achieve spiritual freedom”
