Before I ever knew anything of politics in my early youth, I dreamt the dream of communal unity at heart. I shall jump in the evening of my life, like a child to feel that dream has been realised in this life….
The vista before me seems to me to be, as it must be to you, too glorious to be true. Yet like a child in a famous picture, drawn by a famous picture, drawn by a famous painter, I shall not be happy till I have got it. I live and want to live for no lesser goal.
(Harijan, January 18, 1948)
