Kamat's Potpourri

Ask Gandhi

.

Q

"Gandhiji, you have said that men who do not work, eat stolen food. What does it mean?"

A

                             
I strongly believe in the sanctity of human labor. Men and women must perform their duties with devotion. Not to labor because of one's being wealthy is unholy. Work with the hands is the apprenticeship of honesty and a recognition of fellow humans' toiling.

"To Work is To Worship" a Hindu saint has claimed. May the work of your hands be a sign of gratitude and reverence to the human condition.
