Cui dono lepidum novum labellum, To whom do I dedicate this new, charming little book, Arida modo pumice expolitum, just now polished with a dry pumice stone? Corneli tibi namque tu solebas, To you, Cornelius, for you were accustomed, meas esse aliquid putare nugas, to think that my nonsense was something, iam tum cum ausus es unus Italorum, then already when you alone of Italians, omne aevum tribus explicare cartis, dared to unfold every age in three papyrus rolls, doctis Iuppiter et laboriosis, learned, Jupiter, and full of labor. Quare habe tibi quidquid hoc libelli, Therefore, have for yourself whatever this is of a little book, ualecumque quod o patrona virgo of whatever sort; which, O patron maiden, plus uno maneat perenne saeclo, may it remain everlasting, more than one lifetime.
Tolstoy indicates it. ‘Do not resist evil, but also do not yourselves participate in evil–in the violent deeds of the administration of the law courts, the collection of taxes and, what is more important, of the soldiers, and no one in the world will enslave you’, passionately declares the sage of Yasnaya Polyana. Truth, like gold, is to be obtained not by its growth, but by washing away from it all that is not gold. The sole meaning of life is to serve humanity. Leo Tolstoy. Truth alone will endure, all the rest will be swept away before the tide of time. I must continue to bear testimony to truth even if I am forsaken by all. Mine may today be a voice in the wilderness, but it will be heard when all other voices are silenced if it is the voice of Truth. MK Gandhi.
MK Gandhi: “Zionism in its spiritual sense is a noble aspiration, but Zionism which aims at the re-occupation of Palestine by Jews does not appeal to me. I understand the yearning of the Jew to return to the land of his forefathers. He can and should do that in so far as this return can be achieved without English or Jewish bayonets. In that case the Jew who goes to Palestine can live in perfect peace and friendship with the Arabs. The real Zionism which rests in the hearts of the Jews is an aim one should strive and give one’s life. Such a Zionism is the abode of God. The true Jerusalem is a spiritual Jerusalem. And that spiritual Zionism can be realized by the Jew in every part of the world.”
Yeh khushi yeh khushi ka samaa dil mein gunji hai shehnaaiyan, this happiness reigns in hearts as trumpets. Yeh haseen yeh dilnasheen ek mohabbat ki hai jo dasthaan
Rab rakha – 6 This day, this evening that binds the heart is the place of love. Koi puche aankhon ne aankhon se kya keh diya kya sunn liya. If someone had inquired what eyes said to one another and what was in-fact heard. Keh dhe na chup kae sae dhono nae hai chun liya ek saathiya. Tell them that in secret that they had already picked the bride. Yeh reshmi se pal yeh naram si hulchul, this resplendent moment, this soft breeze, Yeh sapno kae badaal rab raka, The dream that thunders is that of your Rabbi. Rab raka – 6 Maahi sahguna manaaya hai bajade sang dhol shehnaaiyan, The virtuous accommodate the thunder’s clap as those of trumpets. Mainu mil gaya mera ranjheya thae rabba khair maniyaan hayye, I have found my king, my rabbi who accedes to this stage. Nachle yeh dhil mera kahi dha, Dance my heart that was once empty. O aaja nachle yeh dil mera kahi dha saath thera bus chahida, Dance my heart as you wish. O goriye saath thera bas chaahida, My eyes seek the white ones. O mere naal thu aa haye o zara thaal mila haye, come dispossessed so that you may gain blessing. O nachle yeh dhil maera kahi dha. Thumko yun jo dekhun jaane kyun mera jiya dhadke piya. When in thy presence, I do not know why hearts leap. Mehaki si lehaki si dehaki si main hoon piya yeh kya kiya, a lover of the aroma of words is what have you wrought God. Yeh husn aur yeh thu yeh kaanch yeh khushbu, Your visage is as precious as glass and fragrant as flowers, Yeh roop yeh jadhu rab raka yeh hasin yeh dilnashin, this appearance that is magical Rabbi that is both of this day and evening, Ek mohabbath ki hai jo dhasthaan rab raka – 6 which is a place of love everlasting Rabbi-Man of God.
Intrinsic value cannot be confused to mean possessing value, as there are instances where a thing like equality can be a possession of value rather than a manifestation of intrinsic value. Civil disobedience can be supported to establish equality among people with different faiths, backgrounds, interests and status. The practice of equality by placing law in every aspect of life is a matter of intrinsic value that has a considerable extrinsic impact on society and people. If a given thing in life possesses intrinsic value then not only must that same thing possess it under all circumstances, but also anything exactly like it, must, under all circumstances, possess it providing equality. Or to put it in the corresponding negative form: It is impossible that of two exactly similar things one should possess it and the other not, or that one should possess it in one degree, and the other in a different one.” For it is obvious that there is a sense in which, when things are exactly like, they must be ‘intrinsically different’ and have different intrinsic properties because they are two. The divide of intrinsic difference and intrinsic value can be accomplished via a moral component. One such example of the resolution of difference and value is the movement known as Satyagraha (meaning to hold on firmly to truth.) MK Gandhi demonstrated how civil disobedience to a Raj brought about lasting influence in terms of non-violence as Law of our being. Non-violence concluded with civil disobedience and it brought together intrinsic value for extrinsic change, freedom from imperial domination. Satyagraha did not fully succeed because of its inability to remove factors outside its purview. Chief being the inability to form a government that could share power as equals.
