Sri Sri Sankaracharya Speaks – An Exclusive Interview By Sri A.S.Raman – August 18, 1963 – Illustrated Weekly – Part 12


Q.: I presume that Your Holiness reads newspapers. What is your attitude towards the Sino-Indian border dispute? Do you think that we should negotiate with China on the basis of the Colombo proposals?

H.H.:  Of course I read newspapers. Rather, I have them read out to me. Surely, you don’t wish to involve me in a political controversy. As for the Sino-Indian border dispute, I have no solution to offer. But Bertrand Russell’s much-discussed appeal to Mr. Nehru seems to make sense to me. Anyway, my views on politics and politicians are unimportant—as unimportant as my views on films. So ignore them. Let us discuss on something else—some other subject, less trivial and more provocative.
