Start a Conversation, Make a Global Connection
People like conversations. All of us do.
Conversation about things that matter to us? That’s even better.
Yet, ever so often, we don’t really know what to talk about and who to talk to?
We are bothered, aren’t we all? About the beggars at the traffic signal, the increasing smoke while we’re driving; the attractive hoardings offering frozen foods, people raging over each other in a jam…and we wonder: about poverty, economy, food cycles, stress levels…
Cut this scene to our workplaces or homes. Or watching a news coverage of war, or corruption or atrocities. And we start talking.
Start talking with ourselves, with families, with people around us – yet do these conversations berate our existence, galvanize us? Make us feel helpless? Or do they empower us to take an action? A small or big step towards some change that we believe in?
We have embarked on a new journey with 2013 – a new year. A year which has defied an age-old prophecy about the end of the world. As we renew ourselves, its time to take a look at ourselves. Are we going to be silent spectators, angry onlookers, frustrated individuals or empowered human beings who believe in finding solutions and taking action?
We are fortunate – more than our ancestors. We have a wonderful weapon, if you please. A glue, which defies borders. A tool which helps us to touch each other every day. Helps us make a global connection, even while sitting in our homes and offices
Black, white, yellow or brown; educated, unlettered, a doctor or a struggling entrepreneur. We all have equal access to this tool, equal opportunity. How we use it depends on the touch of our fingers.
