The life of Jesus represents the leadership of the oppressed by one who sacrificed himself for those who believed in him . The life of Ambedkar is a template which shows the marginalised a way to rise above social barriers through education and perseverance. Their message of organisation and collective struggle against the vested interests for equal human rights is relevant for all times.
The various new years being celebrated all across the country shows the variety and diversity of our great republic . The expression and symbols of sub nationalism in an unified federal structure is a strength which should be nurtured and cultural diversity needs to be respected to build a more humane and tolerant society.
Seasons greetings to everyone. Stay cool in the hot atmosphere and enjoy the bonding with your near and dear ones that the long weekend offers.
