Question:
Under the Communist rule there was control but there was no unrest. With coming in of the openness, problems are becoming serious. What are your views in this context?

Answer:
In seven decades of Communist rule in Russia, the control was so intense and pervasive that people did not have freedom to think whether there was peace or unrest. They were parts of the machine. Now that the control has faded, there is some freedom to think, speak and write. Man is able to think about his problems. There are clear indications that the shortages of articles of primary needs exist there as nowhere else. In that communist country that manufactured airplanes, guns and missiles, launched satellites and established experimental stations in space, there were long queues for bread. All these incongruities prevailed. Unlimited amount of money was spent in the manufacture of arms, ammunitions and space-vehicles, while the primary needs of the people were ignored. Now with the removal of the iron curtain, everything is clearly visible that there was neither peace nor non-violence there. They have now started talking about it. This matter of peace and non-violence is understood only after the fulfilment of the primary needs.
