Gandhi

Yesterday was Republic Day. I have never done anything symbolic on any of our national holidays since going for a flag hoisting session at school.

Yesterday, I watched 'Gandhi'. I remember having watched it as a young lad and I was surprised how little I remembered of it. Now, I am older, wiser and more mature. The film, therefore, had a profound impact on me, igniting much latent internal turmoil resulting in reflection and debates.

What can I do to help and serve my nation? How can I imbibe Gandhi's values in my life? What is the one unifying cause today as independence was then? Is it poverty? Is it illiteracy?

There is much to be done, to be discovered.
