When Gandhiji fought for independence….he really meant people should be independent of MANY things…not just from the English:
From Disease and Illness: Gandhiji is the only person in the world who said ‘you should be ashamed to say you are ill…see what YOU have done to your body that YOU became ill’. I did not understand this concept till my homeopathy doctor told me that 90% of illness is because of food – over eating, under eating, wrong food, too hot, too cold, too spicy, too early, too late…I just stopped being foolish with my food.
From servants: How many of us can live without any help? He did. He could cook, clean his room, clean his toilet – unlike some jokers- this was not a political statement. It was freedom from needing help. Charka was a part of this independence – I can sew my own clothes. So was the Dandi march…”I can make my own salt’
From needs: another brilliant Gandhian concept ‘I am rich by the things that I can live without’ ..he had minimalist needs, and he ate a ball made of neem leaves..which told him how tasty the food was, and I guess it killed the germs in his body!
From the British of course: We think this was his only fight.
…..remember when he said ‘Independence’ he meant all that.
How many of us have even ATTEMPTED..forget reached. Most people go for bigger cars, bigger houses, more servants,…..Independence day? Lets drive down to Mahableshwar..thats the thought, right? L O L
Long live Gandhiji.
