That's a nice philosophy. But do we, in the heart of our hearts, believe in such maxims? If yes, why are we so materialistic, so ached for high positions that has lot of money to offer? Do we want to earn those hefty amounts for ameliorating the heart-melting distress of the under-priviledged HUMAN BEINGS? Do we ever visit a slum and pick up a dirty child and take up any responsibility regarding his/her education or healthcare or any conceivable way that may improve the quality ( if anything of that sort at all exists for them!!! ) of his/her living?
I'm not talking about charity. Charity is the least desirable things for the poverty-stricken citizens of India. We need to sensitize them - disseminate valuable information to them that may empower those hapless beings to find their own way out of the misery.
Are we in the habit of taking such initiatives? I doubt. Otherwise, my maid's daughter would not have been a school drop-out!!!!!!
We have a propensity to preach and not to practice what we preach.
