Something to think about…..


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.
