Whatever one’s ultimate beliefs may be (and there is complete freedom to cultivate and express them) one relies on them less and less as a source either of knowledge or of guidance. One concentrates on acquiring the technical knowledge necessary to solve problems one by one as they come along. The question whether one is a Hindu or a Moslem is increasingly unimportant; the main matter is to enlist all the talent available to to meet the problems of industrialization, land reform, population control and the rest.
