Mahatma Gandhi on Swaraj

The word Swaraj is a sacred word, a Vedic word, meaning self-rule and self-restraint, andnot freedom from all restraint which ‘independence’ often means.

 Young India, 19.3.1931


Real Swaraj will come not by the acquisition of authority by a few but by the acquisition of the capacity by all to resist authority when it is abused.

 Young India, 29.1.1925


Swaraj can be maintained, only when there is majority of loyal nad patriotic people to whom the good of the nation is paramount above all other considerations whatever including their personal profit.

Young India, 28.7.1921
