(in car)

Prabhupāda: . . . and artificially they construct big, big cities.

Jagadīśa: We made a wrong turn.

Prabhupāda: Wrong?

Jagadīśa: Wrong turn we made back at the beginning of the street. (break)

Prabhupāda: . . . coming. Why?

Brahmānanda: This is more pleasant.

Satsvarūpa: In a newspaper report, Śrīla Prabhupāda, about India, it said that the mass of people in the rural areas didn't even know that there was an emergency rule. They don't . . . It's so peaceful. They're not affected. (break)

Prabhupāda: . . . of people, they do not care for these political things. Even in Gandhi's strong civil disobedience movement, out of the whole population of India, only sixty-thousand men joined. What is the India's population?

Brahmānanda: Six hundred million.

Prabhupāda: Six hundred million, and out of that, sixty thousand joined, and it became successful. Sixty thousand joined by statistics. Actually worker, I don't think more than ten thousand people. (pause) Exactly like Indian village. Here there is no business. They simply reside.

Brahmānanda: Yes.

(break) (on walk)

Satsvarūpa: . . .it's over there somewhere. He's one of the world's richest men, H. L. Hunt. He's a Dallas oil millionaire. Some devotees tried to approach him, but at his house he has servants and. . . At least the servant took a Bhagavad-gītā. They couldn't see the man himself.

Dayānanda: He died.

Satsvarūpa: He's dead?

Dayānanda: A few months ago. (break)

Prabhupāda: . . . otogrika?(?) Similar like that. (break) . . .dollars?

Brahmānanda: Daily.

Prabhupāda: Daily.

Brahmānanda: Yes. That means about four thousand a month. (break)

Prabhupāda: . . .of man, why? Why this movement?

Jagadīśa: Because the men are exploiting them.

Prabhupāda: Hmm. That is the fact. They are dissatisfied with the treatment of man. The grievance is that they do not get husband, home, children; like loitering on the street. That is their aspiration: they want good home, good husband, good children. That they are not getting. Oh, it is a very big lake. (end)
