'It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it'. - Aristotle.
I would like to share one of my favourite quotes of Mahatma Gandhi on this occasion.
"The future depends on what we do in the present".
For all of us to have a better and bright future, we should start working today. It is not for the benefit of others but for ourselves so it is better we follow this principle of the great man.
Eat healthy now to prevent diseases in the future.
Learn well now to fetch a good job in the future.
Save sufficiently now to enjoy your retirement life.
Do good deeds now to be saved from sins.
Be wise and start forecasting on your needs or aims and plan accordingly
"Do not give up, things might not favour you always"
1.True education is one that enriches body, mind, and spirit - I mostly followed textbook education.
2.Learning is a lifelong process - I stopped learning a few years back, now started to re-learn from life.
3.An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching - I've said many things but practiced only a few. Now saying less and less.
4. Buy Indian Goods - Last I bought a foreign brand watch or shoes was 17 years back. ( also financially above my reach).
If we can reflect on ourselves and do whatever little we can, however, small it may be, then Gandhi Jayanthi and Gandhism would have a true value.
