Wisdom Shared – Ved, Delhi, India

 

If you don’t want to

love all, don’t,

but don’t spread hatred.

If you had the stage… the undivided attention of the world… and all were listening… What words of wisdom, council or advice would you share?

“Keep religion a personal thing. Faith is personal. Respect everyone and give space. We have enough problems to solve. The least we can do is unite to fight against bigger problems like poverty, hunger, global environment, illiteracy. If you don’t want to love all, don’t, but don’t spread hatred. Every human on this planet commands respect for there is at least one aspect or a thing that they’re better than you.”

Looking toward the future… as far, or as close as you want to imagine (one year or hundreds of years)– Where do you see the people or the planet … or, what do you think we should be doing now to prepare for the future?

“From where I come from I see a decline in the quality of education. Unless corruption is uprooted from the society it’ll continue to rot our culture. The main aim of education should be to bring up better citizens but unfortunately we’re bringing up only certificate holders and not great citizens. If we are, they’re being outnumbered by bad ones and they’ll be bad parents one day passing on the bad vibes to the society.”
