I make no comparison among the two individuals. That would be foolish and probably unfair to both of them. I only talk about getting a glimpse.. of what sincerity can achieve even in this day and age. Hats off to such sincerity- from all of us in TISA!
I have been watching the news, the discussion, the negotiations and the reactions. How have we responded? Intelligentsia of the land was rather dismissive- finding some or other fault with the man and the movement. Some “intelligent” commentator calling him “Gandhilite”- just imagine! Politicians of course were inimical on one pretext or the other (for obvious reasons) and there were some who tried to dilute or de-focus the whole thing for concerns which could have waited..
Message for us: Never hang on to “limiting” beliefs: Oh, this cant be done- not now. No one cares. Why bother? Time and majority is against us. Let us try it some other time.. etc. etc.
Have faith in yourself and be SINCERE.
Last, I must change before the world does…
