I was critical of the sadhus in India on certain points--never mind what they were. The differences got aired in several Indian newspapers at the time rather sensationally, and with much miscomprehension--even malice. But I also admired them on other points, some of which I find present today among those young drop-outs who have a religious turn of mind. They are in rebellion against a materialistic society and refuse to join it. They remind us that Jesus was a drop-out too. They try to live by working on self, supporting themselves co-operatively and not competitively, without ambitions, without insurance, with only a few possessions--by sincerity and not by appearance.
