Dear Sisters and Brothers, today is the last day of August and it is also last day of the present responsibilities as the Joint Secretary of VKVs in Arunachal Pradesh. I am fortunate enough to be in the land of rising sun for the last 24 years. Many asked me “Are you leaving Arunachal Pradesh?” I did not answer to any of them as it was difficult. The two lines of the poem was the answer to myself
“Can you quit a thing that you like a lot?
You may talk of pluck; it’s an easy word…………”
I could experience the snippets of goodness everywhere in Arunachal Pradesh and I consider them as the pearls from the land of rising sun. I am carrying them in my heart and moving on ………….
Wish you all the best for your onward march!
Every Nation, every man, every woman, must work out one’s own salvation. Give them ideas- that are the only help they require, and then the rest must follow as the effect. Ours is to put the chemicals together, the crystallization comes in the law of nature. Our duty is to put ideas into their heads, they will do the rest. This is what is to be done in India.
~~ Swami Vivekananda
