From the Gujarati literary journal Visami Sadi [may the internet gods smile upon whomever digitized it], May 1916, comes this nugget of a Q&A with Mohammad Ali Jinnah [link and translation via Daily Times] :
A: Independence (swatantrata).
Q: What are the qualities a woman should be admired for?
A: Taking care of the elderly (vrudhdha-dari).
Q: What do you think is true success in life?
A: To be admired and loved by people (lok-no chhah melavva-ma).
Q: What’s your favourite pastime?
A: Horse riding (ghode-savari).
Q: What’s your favourite flower?
Q: Who’s your favourite writer?
Q: What’s your favourite book?
A: Monte Cristo (The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas).
Q: What’s your motto?
A: Never be depressed (kadi nirash na thavu).
“To be admired and loved by people.” That does explain some things.
