Can Tomorrow’s Indian Citizens March Like Today’s Egyptians?

Posted by Barry Pittard on February 13, 2011


"As I watched the footage of brave Egyptian citizens risking their lives to unseat a leader and government they believe have sorely betrayed the people, my mind reflected back to the courage – to take but one example – of thousands of Indian citizens who accompanied Mahatma Gandhi on the great salt marches" ...

... "Perhaps, if India’s people took their courage in their own hands, they could, once more, show a shining example to the world, and come out on the streets like the Egyptian people are now doing – but without the bloodshed. But perhaps the culture of violent governmental suppression in that great and tragic country has gone too far".

One thing is sure. Sathya Sai Baba is not – and never has been – a leader who can transform a nation. But then, who else in India can?"
