Past weekend, I heard a lot of talk on Amir Khan’s dream project, Satyamev Jayate, an Indian Hindi TV show, aired on Star Network and Doordarshan, is a talk show discussing social issues like child labor, health problems and other issues affecting the country. The first episode was about the sensitive issue of female foeticide . I wish, I hope to see more media attention on eradicating poverty in India. It is about time.
“Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity; it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.”-Mandela.
One thought on “Something to think about…..”
Poverty is a choice. I was born poor but I have chosen to make something out of my life. 😉
