DOGS BARK&BITE BUT THE CARAVAN PASSES



That is my feverent hope for the new year. Two senior high school girls from Rajastan entered into a conversation with us on Miramar beach yesterday. They came to Goa with a group of 73 girls for a three day vacation. What do you plan to do after graduation? I asked. We want to study for an MBA."A revoir," one of them called as we walked away. The number of Indians making over 10,000 dolars a year is doubling every year and the greater their income, the greater their margin of error, the greater the actual libery they enjoy. With greater freedom comes greater tolerance.

So, Indian caravan is moving despite the barking and biting of the intellectual and political dogs nipping at their heels. The latter are worried about losing control over their conciousness and hence voting banks. They do can all they can to stop the caravan here as they have stopped in Iraq, PA, Lebanon, Syria and Iran.

Will these reactionary powers involve us in another world war? The answer my friends in blowing in the wind, the answer is blowing in the wind.

Happy New Year to one and all.
