“A human being is a part of the whole called by us as universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” - Albert Einstein
Recently I saw an interview in one of our regional news channel about Rita Panicker, a lady who overwhelmed me with her tales of street children. She is the Director of an organization called Butterflies - a programme for street and working children. It's a voluntary organization that runs in Delhi since 1989 and focuses on safeguarding and protecting the rights of street and working children. They include children even in their decision making. They even have a bank called Khazana run by children and is not restricted to India alone. Bal sabha's are engaged monthly to discuss the childrens' issues. The most stricking part in her talk was the couple decided not to have children so that they can serve the children of the world. Rita says that's following the religion, that's serving God! Isn't that True and so Noble? Visit Butterflies :)
This week my pictures are from nature, again, and I am embracing nature and all the living creatures :)
