Winter is setting in at Bangalore. All of nature is in sync with the change of season, and the farmers and gardeners among us will know that now is the time of the year when plantings and crops with longer cycles keenly grow their roots and strengthen their connection to the soil.
It gives us an opportunity to reflect on how we as people can strengthen our roots too. In the depths of it, our roots all connect to the essential human nature that is beyond any differences of nationality, gender, religion or race. This is connected to the inherent goodness in man, the altruistic and humanistic parts of us that ancient wisdom across cultures says we must aspire to connect to, as a key to individual happiness and social harmony.
This edition of ACROPOLIS contains inspiring articles about the spirit of the Mahatma (2018 is the 150th anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Gandhi); Being the Peaceful warrior; an interview with the refreshingly humble and indomitable AyyappaMasagi, the ‘Water Doctor’; and an artistic-philosophical activity we invite you to take up, of hand-creating decorations for your home or workplace.
A quote by the author-philosopher Albert Camus captures the spirit of this edition of ACROPOLIS:
“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
