Food for thought!

There are some days when a post on design just does not do it for me. There are far too many important things besides that I need to share.....


From a culture of sharing we have become a culture driven by possession and profit. The century of self. This short film comes from the kitchens of the Golden Temple (which I have blogged about before) where every day around 100,000 people, regardless of colour, caste or religion, donate, prepare, consume and clean for nothing more than compassion. Are we really moving in the right direction?
This year the world will produce enough food to feed twice the world's population, yet every day almost one billion people will sleep hungry.

Kamini, amazing video, if only its a compassion driven society,if only.

We have the biggest gurudwara outside of India in bayarea and same is the case food served with no questions asked and just plain compassion always amazes me.

Many are still hungry in any parts of the world. I personally thank God that I could sleep well at night as I eat the right food together with my family.

Nice video.

The Satsang philosophy is what makes a community.
Churches have their own ways in terms of sunday schools, Vacation Bible school, Thanks giving etc..

American society is already facing the wrath of breakdown in communities ! Since India is following on this "piece" of development -- so be it !
