‘Be the change you wish to see in this world’

GYANESH M. KHANOLKAR forwards a celebrated picture of the father of the nation with his northwest frontier counterpart, Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan.


As our nation turns diamond, as we blame, find fault with, and criticise others; as we point fingers at and pick holes in this, that and the other, now is as a good time as any to ask: how have we lived, worked and played? And what we have done to make this a better country?

Can we, as the Mahatma prescribed, be the change we want to see, without waiting for somebody else to usher it in for us?
