“We have to shed mutual bickering, shed the difference of being high or low, develop a sense of equality and banish untouchability. We have to restore the conditions of Swaraj prevalent prior to British rule. We have to live like children of the same father.” Sardar Vallabhai Patel This thought of Sardar Vallabhai Patel, the legend, reminds us of his contribution to the nation.
