 If any person raises his hand to strike down another on the ground of religion, I shall fight him till the last breath of my life

On Spirituality

Politics and Religion are obsolete. The time has come for Science and Spirituality

On Children

Children are like buds in a garden and should be carefully and lovingly nurtured, as they are the future of the nation

On Education

A university stands for humanism, for tolerance, for reason, for the adventure of ideas and for the search for truth

On Time

Time is not measured by the passing of years but by what one does, what one feels, and what one achieves

On Life

Life is like a game of cards. The hand that is dealt you is determinism; the way you play it is free will

On Capitalism

The forces in a capitalist society, if left unchecked, tend to make the rich richer and the poor poorer.
