Vanavasi Kalyana Karnataka

"Let New India arise - out of the peasant's cottage, grasping the plough, out of the huts of fishermen, the cobbler and the sweeper. Let her spring from the grocer's shop, from beside the oven of the fritter - seller. Let her emanate from the factory, from the marts and from markets. Let her emerge from the groves and forests, from the hills and mountains!"
