Education: Mohandas K. Gandhi-1922

Is it not a most painful thing that, if I want to go to a court of justice, I must employ the English language as medium; that, when I become a barrister, I may not speak my mother-tongue, and that some one else should have to translate to me from my own language? Is not this absolutely absurd? Is it not a sign of slavery? Am I to blame the English for it or myself? It is we, the English-knowing men, that have enslaved India. The curse of the nation will rest not upon the English but upon us.

The Condition of India Lawyers-Mohandas K. Gandhi-1922

The lawyers, therefore, will, as a rule, advance quarrels, instead of repressing them. Moreover, men take up that profession, not in order to help others out of their miseries, but to enrich themselves. It is one of the avenues of becoming wealthy and their interest exists in multiplying disputes. It is within my knowledge that they are glad when men have disputes. Petty pleaders actually manufacture them. Their touts, like so many leeches, such the blood of the poor people. Lawyers are men who have little to do. Lazy people, in order to indulge in luxuries, take up such professions.

Reflection on Mohandas Gandhi – George Orwell-1949

Gandhi himself, in his middle thirties, took the vow of BRAMAHCHARYA, which means not only complete chastity but the elimination of sexual desire.

And finally this is the cardinal point—for the seeker after goodness there must be no close friendships and no exclusive loves whatever.

Quit India Resolution(Text) drafted by Barrister M K Gandhi-27/04/1942

The committee is of the opinion that it is harmful to India’s interests, and dangerous to the cause of India’s freedom, to introduce foreign soldiers in India. It therefore appeals to the British Government to remove these foreign legions, and henceforth stop further introduction. It is a crying shame to bring foreign troops in, in spite of India’s inexhaustible man power, and it is proof of the immorality that British imperialism is.
