Little sacrifices for greater goodSacrifices often bring up disturbing images related to animal killings etc. But it also means relinquishing something we desire or that is ours for the sake of the common or greater good.
For instance, a school child preparing for exams gives up TV and playtime in return for better marks. A mother or father gives up their personal time and work longer hours or do overtime to earn and give their children a better future.
In a joint family, people give up personal space and freedom to a certain extent for the greater good of the entire family.
So too for the country, we (public and politicians) can start giving little sacrifices, give up greed for power and money, give up personal vendetta, give up religious bias and societal apathy for the greater good. Then in return, we can have a better India, more vibrant, stronger and certainly a developed nation and a force to reckon. Can we do it?
