Gandhi advocated for an India that is self-governed in accordance with Indian principles, values, and practices. Not one that simply operates within a British structure. Further, Gandhi allocates a small portion of his book to scrutinize modern civilizations and modern technologies. In this paper, through the examination of Gandhi 's theories proposed in his book "Hind Swaraj," I will contend that although Gandhi 's view of how civilization ought to be and Indian self-rule does hold some truth, there are various deficiencies in his reasoning and what implications his writing has on our modern society. Initially, it is imperative to define Gandhi 's conceptualization of what civilization is.
Rabindra Nath Tagore (Bengali, 1861-1942) said that the unity of India always be in the diversity. The foundation for this tradition had been laid in India at the social level by saints like Nanak, Kabir, Chaitanya and others. As a result, India‟s nationalism is mingled with its spiritual tradition, with truth and tolerance preached by Mahatma Gandhi and Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, showing India‟s concern for its pluralism.

Of all the children in school, only Balram Halwai could identify the Great Socialist from his picture and recite from memory his message for little children: “Any boy in any village can grow up to become the prime minister of India” (22).

Role of local self governments in promoting social harmony Uske farog e husn se jhamke hai sabme noor Shamm e haram ho ya ki diya somnaat ka. Meer Taqi Meer The maestro of ghazals in 18th century was really pithy and witty while trying to show the way forward to a harmonious living in this legendary she’r of his. The metaphor of somnath- the looted abode of a hindu god, in this she’r for once is not evocative of vengeance but of harmony. A harmony that emanates from enshrining what according to Vivekanand was the most cherished value of India- tolerance.
