Dear sister Mirabaiji, I was also under this impresson that there is no difference between democracy and swaraj. I started my public-life with this experience. In the year 1974, when I had been working in the Rajghat School of Non-violence I came directly in a situation of conflict between Democracy and Dictatorship. It was the period of Internal Emergency, imposed by the then Prime Minister if India. it was at that time that I realised how democracy can be abused and turned into dictatorship by the head of democracy. I suffered imprisonment along with the hundered of thousands of people of my country. It was with this experience that I turned to Gandhi and realized that democracy is not the answer. And democracy is not the right way to awaken the common citizen.
I value your gaols of your life.I am keen to know global coalition for Peace. We also have South Asia Peace Alliance. We all talk about Peace and try to convince to those who are already Peaceful.We all seach peace with in ourselves and get satisfied but in the world Peace is disturbed every where.Nonviolence and Peace canot not be seen in compartments,I mean that when the governments are violent, economy is also violent,society is also violent,how we can propagate Peace,Nonviolence and compassion and love. we should see all these in society and we should not confined these values with in oueselves but share with others. Question remains HOW?
I do not succeed in taking a look at Gandhitopia regularly. Looked at my page a little while ago. Delighted to learn there that I now have a friend in you. I thank you for your friendship.After reading your prifile and a few lines of your comment on Ayurved, I realised that it is an honour to have you as a frend with your understanding about life and also with the kind of work you are engaged in. May God bless you and yours abundantly. Sincerly. Natwar Thakkar.
