Often my friends and I discuss about India’s economy, its corrupt politicians and our role as educated Indian citizens. But more often than not, the discussion ends with frustration and without any solution or commitment to change. The problem is that we aspire for a radical change, much like a change brought by Amir Khan and his friends in “Rang de basanti”.
You can always bring a radical change. But, often, the successful and long lasting imporvements happen when changes are made at a grass root level by informing and educating local people, often uneducated and poor. Mahatma Gandhi did the same and so did Mr Gaurishankar Rajak, the man who started ‘untocuhable’ paper to fight against untouchability. Reading this news paper article “India’s fearless ‘untouchable’ paper” gave me a new inspiration of thinking big but start small.
Bravo Mr Rajak.
