More from Mohandas


Following our recent post about Gandhi’s commentary on cotton commerce between India and her British Imperial masters, we had a number of requests for more sagacious words from the Great One.

So today we impart to you Gandhi’s Seven Social Sins:

* Wealth without Work
* Pleasure without Conscience
* Science without Humanity
* Knowledge without Character
* Politics without Principle
* Commerce without Morality
* Worship without Sacrifice

We’ve also had a surge of requests for Gandhi related Limericks, so I give you this:

There’s a march from Ahmedabad to Dandi
Where the Indian beaches are sandy
          They made their own salt
          And were ordered to halt
But orders meant nothing to Gandhi
