I must continue to bear testimony to truth even if I am forsaken by all. God forbid that India should ever take to industrialism after the manner of the West.

Un salotto perfetto e accogliente, una moglie incinta di sei mesi, premurosa e innamorata, e un marito poliziotto che di punto in bianco le comunica che sta per lasciarla. Un cosciotto surgelato di agnello può diventare allora un’arma impropria, ma anche una cena squisita per i poliziotti che indagano sull’incomprensibile morte del loro collega… Ci vuole un’immaginazione fervida e una forza di volontà incredibile per camminare senza cadere su un tappeto colorato dove i disegni rossi sono carboni ardenti e quelli neri serpenti velenosi pronti a mordere e uccidere. Solo gli spazi gialli sono sicuri, ma ce ne saranno abbastanza? Età di lettura: da 12 anni.
If an entire nation of 300 million took to similar economic exploitation, it would strip the world bare like locusts. Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. If India adopted the doctrine of love as an active part of her religion and introduced it in her politics, Swaraj would descend upon India from heaven. The ideally non-violent state will be an ordered anarchy. That State is the best governed which is governed the least.
Religions are different roads converging to the same point. What does it matter that we take different road, so long as we reach the same goal. Wherein is the cause for quarrelling? An unjust law is itself a species of violence. Arrest for its breach is more so. Ours is one continual struggle against a degradation sought to be inflicted upon us by the Europeans, who desire to degrade us to the level of the raw Kaffir whose occupation is hunting, and whose sole ambition is to collect a certain number of cattle to buy a wife with and, then, pass his life in indolence and nakedness. One thing we have endeavoured to observe most scrupulously, namely, never to depart from the strictest facts and, in dealing with the difficult questions that have arisen during the year, we hope that we have used the utmost moderation possible under the circumstances.
Our duty is very simple and plain. We want to serve the community, and in our own humble way to serve the Empire. We believe in the righteousness of the cause, which it is our privilege to espouse. Why, of all places in Johannesburg, the Indian location should be chosen for dumping down all kaffirs of the town, passes my comprehension. Of course, under my suggestion, the Town Council must withdraw the Kaffirs from the Location. About this mixing of the Kaffirs with the Indians I must confess I feel most strongly.
In this instance of the fire-arms, the Asiatic has been most improperly bracketed with the native. The British Indian does not need any such restrictions as are imposed by the Bill on the natives regarding the carrying of fire-arms. The prominent race can remain so by preventing the native from arming himself. Is there a slightest vestige of justification for so preventing the British Indian? You say that the magistrate’s decision is unsatisfactory because it would enable a person, however unclean, to travel by a tram, and that even the Kaffirs would be able to do so. But the magistrate’s decision is quite different.
