Rammohan's approach to the question of freedom and authority may suggest interesting parallels and possibilities in a society characterised by the erosion of the democratic process and the persistence of
the illusion of justice and welfare. Which of these parallels and possibilities one chooses will depend on one's frame of mind. That will influence one's understanding of and reactions to both Rammohan Roy and the contemporary situation. For present-oriented utilitarian history is essentially a creative subjective process. But it too has some essence of objectivity.
