I have been a sympathetic student of the Western social order and I have discovered that, underlying
the fever that fills the soul of the West, there is a restless search for truth. I value that spirit. Let us
study our Eastern institutions in that spirit of scientific inquiry and we shall evolve a truer socialism and
a truer communism than the world has yet dreamed of. It is surely wrong to presume that Western
socialism or communism is the last word on the question of mass poverty. (ABP, 3-8-1934)

Socialism was not born with the discovery of the misuse of capital by capitalists. As I have contended,
socialism, even communism, is explicit in the first verse of Ishopanishad. What is true is that when
some reformers lost faith in the method of conversion, the technique of what is known as scientific
socialism was born. I am engaged in solving the same problem that faces scientific socialists.

It is true, however, that my approach is always and only through unadulterated non-violence. I may
fail. If it does, it will be because of my ignorance of the technique of non-violence. I may be a bad
exponent of the doctrine in which my faith is daily increasing. (H, 20-2-1937, p. 12)
