Mahatma Gandhi's talisman was strengthening the weaker parts of the society so the nation can stand firmly on all its columns. Otherwise, India would be stressed and limp along. If people around you are doing well, you will do well. The myopic men of BJP may look to it as charity rather than investment in human development.
Years-ago, i wrote a piece called the nation is a bus that’s on a journey, imagine each tire is a community, and each tire has the necessary air to assure safe journey. In the 2nd bus, the tires with full air can scream at low air-tires, look I worked hard to be full, you need to pick the slack and come up to our level ... whose loss is it if they cannot? It behooves the majority to uplift the minority, not for charity but for parity and preventing a drag. The more people we pull out of ditches onto a level playing field, the bigger the consumer market would be, all will gain from it.
Obviously, the bus with full air in the tires will have a safe journey over the limping one.
Whose journey is assured?
We need to make a short video clip contrasting the difference to bring cohesion in society and get rid of the nonsensical idea that it is appeasement of minorities.
