    In reality, the soldier who is engaged in armed combat in a national war deliberately measures from day to day the sum of all degradation inflicted upon many by colonial oppression. The man of action has sometimes the exhausting impression that he must restore the whole of his people that he must bring every one of them up out of the pit and out of the shadows. He very often sees that his task is not.only to hunt down the enemy forces but also to overcome the kernel of despair which has hardened in at the native's being. The period of oppression is painful, but the conflict ; by reinstating the downtrodden, sets on foot a process of reintegration which is fertile and decisive in the extreme. A people's victorious fight not only consecrates the triumph of its rights ; it also gives to that people consistence, coherence and homogeneity. For colonialism has not simply depersonalized the individual it has colonized ; the depersonalization is equally felt in the collective sphere, on the level of social structures. The colonizes people find that they are reduced to a body of individuals who only find cohesion when in the presence of colonizing nation.

The fight carried on by a people for its liberation leads it, according the circumstances, either to refuse or else to explode the so-called truths which have been established in its consciousness by the colonial civil administration, by the military occupation, and by economic exploitation. Armed conflict alone can really drive out these falsehoods created in man which force into inferiority the liveliest minds among us and which, literally, mutilate us.

আমার দৃঢ় বিশ্বাস হয়েছে যে ভারতের কাজে তোমার (সিস্টার নিবেদিতা) একটা ভবিষ্যৎ আছে ।  ভারতের জন্য, বিশেষত ভারতের নারী সমাজের জন্য, একজন প্রকৃত সিংহীর প্রয়োজন । ভারতবর্ষ এখন মহীয়সী মহিলার জন্মদান করতে পারছেনা, তাই অন্য জাতি থেকে তাকে ধার করতে হবে । তোমার শিক্ষা, ঐকান্তিকতা, অসীম ভালোবাসা, দৃঢ়তা এসবের জন্য তুমি ঠিক সেইরূপ নারী, যাকে আজ প্রয়োজন । কিন্তু বিঘ্নও আছে বহু । এদেশের দুঃখ, কুসংকার, দাসত্ব প্রভৃতি কী ধরনের তা তুমি ধারণা করতে পারো না । এদেশে এলে তুমি নিজেকে অসংখ্য নরনারীতে পরিবেষ্টিত দেখতে পাবে । তাদের জাতি ও স্পর্শ সম্বন্ধে বিরাট ধারণা । ভয়েই হোক বা ঘৃণায়ই হোক তারা শ্বেতাঙ্গদের এড়িয়ে চলে এবং তারাও এদের খুব ঘৃণা করে । পক্ষান্তরে শ্বেতাঙ্গরা তোমাকে খামখেয়ালী মনে করবে এবং তোমার প্রত্যেকটি গতিবিধি সন্দেহের চোখে দেখবে ।
