Eight months of independence in South Sudan tension is mounting again for full scale war, this time war against an independent nation on…See More

Why do transnational extremist organizations succeed where democratic movements have a harder time taking hold? Maajid Nawaz, a former Islamist extremist, asks for new grassroots stories and global social activism to spread democracy in the face of nationalism and xenophobia. A powerful talk from TEDGlobal 2011.

Dear friend

every one is now in the race of greed and collecting materialistic rubbish things which brought us in such a condition that now if we will not realize the value of nature ,and all being,we all thinking this earth and on this earth all life is lifeless before our desire and greed this will be a reason for perish of this civilization ,we have enough created such weapon to destroy this planet in several times and also may be nature will be force to teach a lesson for our faults.

there is a great need to understand value of mother earth,nature and all being .

Hello Francis

                     I have just read the comment you left for Shyam and i agree.We cant just sit back any more and watch the world head down a dangerous path.We need to explore every opportunity we can to educate and motivate. If more people get involved who knows where it may lead.

Dear friend
"Vasudev kutumbkam" entire world is a family, this was a teaching of our Indian culture and tradition.
We created countries, boundaries,religions.But this is the time to realize that we are one, our source of life and breath is same , we naturally interconnected with each other.When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable and respectable.God has given us a human life to look after the wellbeing of all living life in this planet.
