Dear Madam,

Apropos your editorial, "He still makes us think" (2 October 2017), Mahatma Gandhi had said, "Rama, Allah and God are to me convertible terms." Also, he wrote in Young India ~ "By Ramarajya I do not mean Hindu Raj. I mean by Ramarajya Divine Raj, the kingdom of God. ...Ramarajya of my dream ensures equal rights alike of prince and pauper." This dream of Gandhiji to have an egalitarian Ramarajya through a truly welfare state must be realised. It is time to focus on labour intensive sectors like farming, unorganised retail, micro and small enterprises for job generation and to improve our score in human development by giving top priority to primary education, vocational training, health infrastructure and nutrition. After all, any structure needs a solid foundation.
