be the change...

Good day from Delhi! This is the second stop on this tour of India....4 more more cities left in the next week or so.

Delhi is an amazing place...Mumbai is great - the energy, the youth, the water....there is something about Mumbai. But there is something about being in a country's capital - Washington DC, Ottawa, Nairobi, etc...each of these cities plays host to the political movers and shakers, where change has the potential to take place. In Delhi, if you have been watching the news, you will have noticed that there is one person who is trying to "be the change" and end corruption - Anna Hazare. He is on the 8th day of his hunger strike trying to get a message to the government...during this process, this very Gandhian approach, he has gained the support of millions of people....these are students, working class people, people from Punjab, Maharastra, all over. Could this be the next revolution in India? I am living at a very great time in this country's history!
