The one great desire of my life is to visit America, the richest and the most prosperous country of the world. I have read and heard a lot about it. I have a curiosity to see whether really every one man out of three in America has got a car, whether every labourer is really handsomely paid, he has a house of his own to live in, he can send his children to school and he gets best food, with plenty of grape juice on his dining table.
