Do you know that in 1982, there was a man named Gore, in Mumbai, who continued #Gandhiji’s “Indian Opinion” movement?

Gandhiji believed in taking into confidence two types of people while pursuing any movement.

One type of people were ordinary people. Second type of people were “Important People in Important Places”. These people remained invisible but they tried to help Gandhiji without being seen.

Gandhiji published “Indian Opinion” in South Africa and its copies were sent to important people all over world, and more particularly in India.

In 1982, I saw a small four page weekly, called “Opinion” in District Library.

It’s annual subscription was only Rs.2/- per year.

On each issue postal stamp was of 5 paise only then.

It’s sole editor, printer, publisher was a man named “Gore” as per my memory.

His language was similar to that of Gandhiji. He wrote from his heart on current topics of India.

I had subscribed to it. And I read it every week.

A postman used to deliver “Opinion” to my home for only a 5 paise postal stamp.

Then this man died. His son continued to publish it.

He then increased subscription from Rs.2/- to Rs.5/- per year. I continued to subscribe. But the spirit was gone. The language now looked less heart-touching.

After few years, I lost its track.

I am not sure who in India is continuing this method of Gandhiji at present.
