Revisiting Gandhi’s Ram Rajya



“My Hinduism teaches me to respect all 
religions. In this lies the secret of Ram Rajya.”

Mahatma Gandhi

Gandhi dreamt of seeing post-independence India as Ram Rajya. As we accept Gandhi as the father of our nation, it is important to understand his idea of Ram Rajya and to introspect if we have been able to implement it holistically, even after 73 years of independence. This act of introspection is essential in the present context when the essence of Ram Rajya is very much diluted, but highly discussed in the public domain. According to Gandhi, Ram Rajya is the kingdom of god on earth. This god is an abstract form, and he is both Rama as well as Rahim. Gandhi firmly believed that this ideal state is possible not just in our imaginary paradise, but also in the contemporary world of injustice and
inequality. This state of Ram Rajya is timeless.
