Don’t have a victim attitude. No matter what has happened to you there are always new beginnings and new opportunities. You have positive attributes and don’t let your difficulties define you. They are merely challenges to overcome and you can develop stategies to compensate for these deficits.. No matter how significant the injury, never think you are disabled… because disability is a state of mind.

Jai Hind!

What I am going to share is my concern.

Recently, one of my friends (a hardcore RSS supporter) sent a video of an interview with a retired high court judge. He was trying to justify the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh , a rightwing organisation well known for their ethnocentric views and activities, also a major ally of the ruling party in India now). He said that no court in India has proved their guilt in the assassination of the Mahatma… Mahatma Gandhi. So it was wrong to blame them.
