MY comment on globalization...

Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (two of the Earth's greatest peacemakers) have taught us through their lives and sacrifices how to be GREAT. If any nation truly wants to be great then it should be characterized in their goals of service to other nations. It will be great when globalisation is more influenced by Gandhi and King. Here is a powerful quote to so you how much Dr. King thought of Gandhi:
"Peace is the sweeter music.
A cosmic melody far superior
to the discords of war...
Gandhi was inevitable.
If humanity is to progress,
Gandhi is inescapable.
He lived, thought and acted,
inspired by the vision
of humanity evolving toward
a world of peace and harmony.
We may ignore Gandhi at our own risk."
--- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Peace and love,

Dr. King stated it well when he said: "Not everybody can be famous. But everybody can be great, because greatness is determined by service." Those of you who are history scholars may know the rest of that passage. He said, "You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You don't have to know about Plato or Aristotle to serve. You don't have to know Einstein's theory of relativity to serve. You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace and a soul generated by love."



MY COMMENT:
Hi John and all,
Really great vision. Indians are confident now to face the challenges coming with the globalization. But with that it will be very good for every nation being part of this 'collaborative growth' (yes this is what I call to Globalization), to serve each other, so as we can have a 'global village' with the 'self sustainable economy' (Concept coined by Gandhiji ), social balance, no discrimination and every thing that a happy family has. Lets complete the dream of Mahatma Gandhi and Dr. king by contributing to the development of the humanity through the Globalization ( But we will have to see towards globalization from this dimension/perspective).
