SideWalk Ghosts / Interview-365: Ved’s Call to All Great Citizens

LansdowneDSC02952(FB)

It has been a while since we’ve received a survey contribution from anyone. Today Interview-365 gets a kickoff as we extend a warm welcome to our new friend, Ved of New Delhi, India.

Our doors will remain always open to all of you who would like to share your words of wisdom.  PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SHARE.

Good Day for 7 Daysfb 3.28.01 PMAlso, we are entering day 2 of our “Good Day for Seven Days” challenge. Plenty of ways to be part of what we are doing. Never forget, your works and words do matter; and, we combined have great power to inspire the many.

VED’S ANSWERS:

If you had the stage… the undivided attention of the world… and all were listening… What words of wisdom, council or advice would you share?

“Keep religion a personal thing. Faith is personal. Respect everyone and give space. We have enough problems to solve. The least we can do is unite to fight against bigger problems like poverty, hunger, global environment, illiteracy. If you don’t want to love all, don’t, but don’t spread hatred. Every human on this planet commands respect for there is at least one aspect or a thing that they’re better than you.”

Looking toward the future… as far, or as close as you want to imagine (one year or hundreds of years)– Where do you see the people or the planet … or, what do you think we should be doing now to prepare for the future?

“From where I come from I see a decline in the quality of education. Unless corruption is uprooted from the society it’ll continue to rot our culture. The main aim of education should be to bring up better citizens but unfortunately we’re bringing up only certificate holders and not great citizens. If we are, they’re being outnumbered by bad ones and they’ll be bad parents one day passing on the bad vibes to the society.”

    Thank you Richard! And thank you for calling me a friend. We are friends now. I thoroughly enjoyed your 365 Strangers turned friends project. I had even asked you for a few tips on how to approach strangers as I wanted to try and start a similar one but unfortunately I still haven’t gathered the courage. But thank you for this space and great message that you’re spreading. I’m hopeful there are more good people like you in the world than those who just don’t want to be.

    • Hi Ved, Thank you for your kind words. You have shown your courage in submitting to Invetview-365 and your words are profound. It’s not always a matter of approaching strangers. Equally important is how we view the world and one another. You are on the right path and I bet your works leave a positive footprint in all you do. Thanks for being part of Operation-365. We look forward to your staying in touch with us.

      Warmest Regards,

      Richard
