In this account of his India tour published in Ebony magazine, King notes that
Gandhi’s spirit is still alive though “some of his disciples have misgivings about this
when . . . they look around and find nobody today who comes near the stature of the
Mahatma.”’ Lamenting India’s pervasive economic inequalities, King observes that
“the bourgeoise--white, black or brown--behaves about the same the world over and
he calls upon the West to aid India’s development “in a spirit of international brotherhood, not national selfishness."
