If you could change one thing about yourself/family/community/society/country/world what would that change be?


I am fascinated by making difference, change and innovations. If you could make difference about something in any of the above mentioned places, what would you want to change? Or, is it really possible to do it? How would you prefer doing it? Are you thinking of taking any actions?

    Feb 16 2013: On November 25, 2011, I decided to accept a goal for self that was worthy of me. It took some time to come to terms with my being worthy of it (in that my cultural indoctrination says that no one can attain that - so there was fear of even thinking the thought, then more fear of attempting attainment). But as I tell people, "walk TOWARD your fears", so I did.

    I started investing several hours a day to its achievement. It meant changing my habitual thoughts and habitual behavior patterns. The change in me and in my whole life is amazing so far, though I have a way to go before I see myself aligning with my new ideal.

    Ultimately, because all are one, that effort will not be wasted.

    It is not our smallness that we fear the most. It is our greatness.
