    (a) Democracy in India is a gift of the British rulers. We received training to work with representative legislative institutions under the British rule.
    (b) Freedom Struggle challenged the colonial exploitation and denial of different freedoms to Indians. Free India could not be anything but democratic.

Women should, therefore, not despair, but feel obliged that they can dedicate themselves to the service of men'.
