Our evening talk shows on electronic media are shows, nothing more. And it's a national tragedy that we're content with this state of being.
Never see the big picture but run off into meandering by lanes: labyrinths in which we get lost..
We lack persistence in striving and are easily distracted : as people we sweat the small stuff. We lack the implementation gene, most of us!
We also treat our freedom as a license to do as we please, do not see it as linked to duties /responsibility. We are like spoilt children.
In most of India we have stopped listening, lack a capacity to keep still, and have only opinions not ideas. Re-invent.

#GlobalGandhi won for us freedom, our First Revolution; on Second Revolution,socio-economic transformation of India, thousand leagues to go.
#GlobalGandhi : "If we are to make progress we must not repeat history but make new history."
Way to go!“@rupasubramanya: Not first time @narendramodi emphasised individual responsibility & not expecting govenment to do everything.”
Am so thrilled to see the Prime Minister reaching out to India's millions via the radio. Long time coming but glad it's finally being done.

#GlobalGandhi Cleanliness and hygiene are what Gandhiji wanted always. Outsourcing cleaning up to anybody but ourselves has got to stop.
#GlobalGandhi. Gandhiji would have loved this simple American traditional hymn. Simple Gifts Lyrics metrolyrics.com/simple-gifts-l…
#GlobalGandhi "Where he sat was a temple, where he walked was hallowed ground." Jawaharlal Nehru on Gandhiji.

#GlobalGandhi Why is being "simple" not upheld or valued in India today? Tis a gift to be simple. Strength and simplicity go together.
#globalgandhi Gandhiji believed in the concept of #WomenAtTheWheel. He knew our strengths and our power to be the change we want to see.
#GlobalGandhi Speaking of #StreeShakti I would particularly exhort our young women to learn from the life of Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay.
#GlobalGandhi His birthday is also occasion to remember the women of our freedom struggle: he believed in #StreeShakti. @sampitroda
@horror06: Clean up, everyone. Don't wait for a prime minister to tell us that we should evolve from being comfortable with filth.”

Love Patti LaBelle's "Quiet Please, There's a Lady on the Stage". Also the late Peter Allen's version. One of my favorite songs.
