Anna Hazare-a Gandhian worth meeting

O My dear friend,

Delia Maria, I receive your connection on Gandhitopia & join you in simple living and thinking, my own vow of solidarity for 33 years. Where are you from?  Indigene Community's work focuses on humanity's universal 'indigenous' (Latin = 'self-generating') worldwide heritage for sustainable livelihood today.

Delia I hope your son is on the mend. I recently re read "The spirits pilgrimage" the autobiography of Mira behn. Women are very sacred as they inherently display Compassion....Humility......Love. They are the givers of life to us all.

Delia Maria,

While going through your comment i felt compassion for you. I pray to God to give you enough courage and wisdom to deal with the situation. And i pray to God for Jeff to prevail better sense to him.

Since you are connected with Gandhian way of life, it would be much easier for you.

Please give a thought over instances Ba had in her life to point finger towards Mahatma Gandhi. I wish if you could be Ba for Jeff so we can have possibility of having one more Gandhi.

Hate the sin, not the sinner.

Let me admit, i'm yet to arrive at this.

Sadar Pranam.....(means Regards)
