Why do human beings have no limit to greed?It was the greatest leader on earth ever, called Mahatma Gandhi, who said "there is enough for everybody's need, but not for everybody's greed"
Decades ago, when I stayed with a superb friend in New Delhi in a room where three of us shared a single room, he would often give superb answers to each question. Asked how the very poor wood survive when they were sick, he would reply that their resistance power was far greater!! He would then take me around to places where food was available for just two rupees ( in 1983) in Karol Bagh. Of course, the hygiene was not ok, but a decent meal in an Udipi hotel cost just Rs.4/- then. When like-minded individuals join together, good thoughts do emerge.
Greed was never in our minds. We were happy with whatever we had. Even after several decades when we meet, we share the thoughts of those days. Life has several alternatives for us to stay on an ethical path.
Yet, we see greed as the sole criteria for all the misery that we see all around us. Greedy politicians are so keen on laying roads after destroying so much of nature. The greed of the executive is still reflected in the massive corruption everywhere. Hopefully, since the PFS records are totally computerized, the chances of looting will come down, almost everywhere.
Massive computerization is indeed called for.; Greed can at least be controlled. What ideas do members have to limit greed, that is now the root cause of all ills?
