A Tribute- Ananda Coomaraswamy

Ananda Coomaraswamy - (August 22 - 1877 - September 9, 1947)

"Five hundred years hence, it will matter little to humanity whether a few Indians, more or less, have held official posts in India, or a few million bales of cloth been manufactured in Bombay, or Lancashire factories; but it will matter much whether the great ideals of Indian culture have been carried forward or allowed to die. It is with these that Indian Nationalism is essentially concerned, and upon these that the fate of India as a nation depends".
Ananda Coomaraswamy (Essays in National Idealism, 1909)
