|Ever green life is my ideal - Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia
Acceptance and rejection are varying forms of blind
worship. There are priceless treasures to learn from
Gandhi and from Marx, but the learning can only be
done when the frame of reference does not derive
from an age or person.
- Dr. Lohia
I have repeatedly observed that no school of thought
can claim a monopoly of right judgement. We are all
liable to err and are often obliged to revise our
judgements. In a vast country like this, there must be
room for all schools of honest thought. And the least,
therefore, that we owe to ourselves as to others is to
try to understand the opponent's view-point and, if
we cannot accept it, respect it as fully as we expect
him to respect ours.
Ram Manohar was very much misunderstood by his contemporaries. Perhaps his ideas were too original to be understood fully while his
straight forwardness was unpleasant to many. - Loknayak Jayaprakash Narayan
