"It is a long time since I taught at the Sathya Sai college at Whitefield, (via Bangalore, South India), having a wonderful teaching experience in all three years of the Bachelor’s Course, where there were students from various classes from villages to palaces. It was moving to see what was emerging.

When I first went to India, it was only thirty years away from India’s Independence"

"India, like other old cultures, has a millennial tradition for respect for elders. It is a very cohesive force, and young cultures that do not have it in such abundance are in deepest trouble".
"Those of India’s more visionary thinkers and planners who can see India’s way out of trouble – without leaving matters up to the so-called democratizations of a gross and rampant capitalism – will be her new heroes".
