|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..

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..
Rammanohar 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.
