Dear friend
"Vasudev kutukbkam" entire world is a family.This is the teaching of our indian culture and tradition.This is a wonderful site to to know our inner self and each other and can make a world a family.
We created countries, boundaries,religions,cast,race for any reason.But this the time to realize that we are one and naturally interconnected with each other which we can just realize by watching inhale and exhale of our breaths. The source is same without any discrimination of religion and boundaries, equally for all living life of universe .When we understand this simple thing then we must understand how our and other's life is equally important, valuable and respectable .
We should follow the nature's rule,God has given us a human life not for destruction but to look after the wellbeing of all living life so that peace and harmony can establish in this planet.
I shall be happy if we could be a friend with harmonious relationship.

Dear Nora,

Thanks very much for getting in touch. I just applied! You can have a look at the page at

Believe it or not, I'm actually thinking of heading out to the Balkans next year with the European Volunteer Service, possibly to work in Sarajevo. I'd love to get out to Kosovo, but I'm not too sure how I'd go about landing an entry level position as most things I've seen are either for mid-career professionals or specialists (police training officers etc.) Any advice on that front would be brilliant! If you've got any more Carter Center questions, feel free to get in touch :)
