Is INDIA going through a process of cleansing?

“I wish influential people including yourself and Satya Narayanan take the initiative to do something with regards to the rapes in india. Please consider this a humble request ! Teach your students this one extra lesson, I am willing to pitch in if needed”

-Geeta, a childhood family friend, who is based in chicago, US, commented on FB..

My response was…

Indeed, each one of us when we address youth we talk about thinking, aiming and doing things that are positive and that takes one towards excellence….realization of potential..

Secondly, the rape issues are coming out because of greater awareness and consciousness…. like the way you are feeling and sharing, every one is feeling and venting the anguish and desire to contribute for the change…the power of social media is immense…it is mobilizing opinions and expressions…for good

Thirdly, the issue, as one of my friends who lives in Europe shared, is no different across the world. It is all about evolution of human being in a social context. India is going through a phase of cleansing perhaps…..

what do you think?

Rabaris – The herd wanderers..

Rabari Man heading a flock grazing expedition

As I travel widely by road, I come across huge flocks of sheeps and goats grazed, in the remotest parts of the country, by these colorfully turbaned gentleman. I am amazed at their passion to graze the cattle. They travel all the way from Gujarat and Rajasthan, for a few thousand kilometres on foot, every year, just grazing the cattle.

Kindly visit my travelogue SREENI ON ROAD for the complete story.
