Swaraj What Gandhi intended Real home-rule is self-rule or self-control Gandhi 118 MK Gandhi in his book entitled Hind Swaraj talks about a variety of issues surrounding his thoughts and feelings about India and the English translation of Hind Swaraj Home-Rule In chapter 4 of the book Gandhi describes not what he thinks Swaraj really is but rather what he thinks Swaraj really isnt The Reader takes what Gandhi says and tries to paraphrase what Gandhis definition of Swaraj is but is entirely unsuccessful Through examining this chapter it will become evident what Gandhis view of Swaraj is and why he rejects the Readers vision for India In the beginning of the chapter Gandhi admits to the Reader that their views on Swaraj may be different by saying It is quite possible that we do not attach the same meaning to the term Gandhi 26 Gandhi also admits to the Reader that all Indians are impatient to obtain Swaraj but we are certainly not decided as to what it is Gandhi 26 So though Gandhi had it in his mind as to what Swaraj isnt he was still unsure of a complete definition of what he thinks it is The Reader suggests to Gandhi that in order for Swaraj to take place the English must remove themselves from India completely and if that happened the Indians would have no difficulty in carrying on the government that the English created Gandhi 27 This of course is distressing to Gandhi because he believes that if the English were to leave and the Indians were to carry on their government it wouldnt be an Indian government at all It would be another English government only this one would be in India and would be followed by Indians thus proving that the Indians wouldnt have obtained Home-Rule at all Gandhi 27 The Reader believes that India can have her own rule if it takes everything it has learned from
