    One may look at life, events, society history, in another way. A way which might at a stretch, be described as the Gandhian way, though it may be from times before Mahatma Gandhi came on the scene. The Gandhi an reaction to all the grim poverty, squalor and degradation of the human being would approximate to effort at self-change and self-improvement, to a regime of living regulated by discipline from within. Tc change society, the individual must first change himself. In this way of looking at life and society, words too being to mean differently. Revolution, for instance, is a term frequently used, but not always in the sense it has been in the lexicon of the militant. So also with words like peace and struggle. Even society may mean differently, being some kind of organic entity for the militant, and more or less a sum of individuals for the Gandhian. There is yet another way, which might, for want of a better description, be called the mystic. The mystic's perspective measures their concerns that transcend political ambition and the dynamism of the reformer, whether he be militant or Gandhian. The mystic measures the terror of not knowing the remorseless march of time; he seeks to know what was before birth, what comes after death. The continuous presence of death, I the conscious-ness of death, sets his priorities and values, militants and Gandhians kings and prophets, must leave II that they have built; all that they have in built and depart when messengers of the buffalo riding Yama come out of the shadows. Water will to water, dust to dust. Think of impermanence everything passes.

    A) a total war on poverty.
