India of my dreams - A Message by Mahatma Gandhi

Gandhi Sangrahalaya - India of My Dreams

[In English : I shall strive for a constitution, which will release India from all thralldom and patronage, and give her, if needed be, the right to sin, I shall work for an India, in which the poorest shall it is their country in whose making they have an effective voice; an India in which there shall be no high class and low class of people; an India in which all communities shall live in perfect harmony. There can be no room in such an India for the curse of untouchability or the curse of the intoxicating drinks and drugs. Women will enjoy the same right as men. Since we shall not be at peace with all the rest of the world, exploiting, nor being exploited, we should have the smallest army imaginable .....
