"…..we have to concentrate on the village being self-contained, manufacturing mainly for use. Provided this character of the village industry is maintained, there would be no objection to villagers using even the modern machines and tools that they can make and can afford to use. Only they should not be used as a means of exploitation of others."
Mahatma Gandhi  (Harijan, 29-8-1936, p.226)

“...the unity of India has been and shall always be a unity in diversity in which every language, every religion and every culture shall have its due place.”
Rabindranath Tagore (Encyclopedia of Eminent Thinkers pp.28)
