A message for Mumbai

“Religions are different roads converging to the same point. What does it matter that we take different roads, so long as we reach the same goal. Wherein is the cause for quarrelling?”

“I believe that the civilisation into which India has evolved is not to be beaten in the world. Nothing can equal the seeds sown by our ancestry. Rome went; Greece shared the same fate; the might of the Pharaohs was broken; Japan has become westernised; of China nothing can be said; but India is still, somehow or other, sound at the foundation.
Greece, Egypt, Rome — all have been erased from this world, yet we continue to exist. There is something in us, that our character never ceases from the face of this world, defying global hostility for centuries.”


“Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man.”


“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

    I was thinking about you this weekend. I don’t understand why this happened. I just don’t.

    I can’t stop thinking about it. I’ve been to Mumbai and it’s a wonderful city, as vibrant and colourful as NYC. I stayed at a hotel just down the street from the Taj and actually went inside to have a look round. Gorgeous, gorgeous building. I think it’s going to take a while for the authorities to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. But India has survived major tragedies in the past and it will survive this one, too.

    We are probably the only creatures in the world who’d destroy each other simply because we’re different. What a senseless loss.
