The letter printed below is a translation of Tolstoy's letter written in Russian in reply to one from the Editor of Free Hindustan. After having passed from hand to hand, this letter at last came into my possession through a friend who asked me, as one much interested in Tolstoy's writings, whether I thought it worth publishing. I at once replied in the affirmative, and told him I should translate it myself into Gujarati and induce others' to translate and publish it in various Indian vernaculars.
Words of wisdom
Words woven together with love, care and intelligence. Such a fine piece of writing and such an amazing perspective on Krishna’s teachings
Quite fascinated with Tolstoy’s writing. Love is what should bind mankind. Unfortunately it’s been corrupted by pseudo religious and pseudo scientific thoughts which aim to empower only a few, leading to the subjugation of man by his own who in facade of scientific reason aim to only power themselves without any question or challenge to their power.
A logical exposition
A brilliant logical exposition of the weaknesses and exploitation in Hinduism and how we must counter these with love and unity to make Hinduism and India stronger. The underlying views expressed are universal in being beyond spatio-temporal confines and while being customised to the Indian scenario. Hence, they are of immense current relevance as well.
