Neither did I have any qualification nor the intention to dabble in politics which specially concerns any of the European countries. And this was why I wanted to keep my mind neutral when I came to ltaly. But we live in a whirlwind to talk today and an individual like myself is compelled to contribute to that universal noise, dragged by the chain of Karmas as we say in our country. I allowed myself to fall a victim to this relentless Karma with its ever lengthening coil of consequence when I succumbed to the importunity of press interviewers in Italy. An interview is a dangerous trap in which our unwary opinions are not only captured but mutilated. Words that come out of a monient’s mood are meant to be forgotten, but when they are snap-shotted, most often our thoughts in them are presented in a grotesque posture which is an irony of accident. The camera in this case being also a living mind the picture becomes a composite one in which two dissimilar features of mentality have a mesalliance that is likely to be unhappy and undignified. \○8t
