MANY despair of the gloomy times we are facing in our blessed country: corruption, racial discord, religious acrimony, and much more. To many – no end, no resolution, seems to be in sight.
The world itself faces incredulous challenges as climate change, wars and the subversion of established institutions – like the UN Security Council. Wars are initiated in defiance of established internationally agreed processes; on the basis of bald-faced lies. Leaving in its wake a litany of wasted lives – mainly women and children – murdered through unparalleled sophisticated weaponry. War crimes committed with impunity.
Perhaps it’s time to reflect; and glean wisdom from one of the few colossuses that walked this earth: M. K. Gandhi.
