“Bombs and pistols do not make a revolution. The sword of revolution is sharpened on the whetting-stone of ideas”
”by crushing individuals, they cannot kill ideas.”
”Zindgi to apne damm par hi jiyi jati hey..dusro k kandhe par tohh shirf janaje uthaye jate hey.”
”Life is lived on its ownother’s shoulders are used only at the time of funeral.”
