Desh Ki Awaaz
We all dream of a better India.
We all want to see the day when our children are free from poverty and abuse, when our women can live free from fear, when our men are free to dream and build together, without greed or comparison stopping them.
What if we realised that we could actually live free from fear? What if we remembered that our neighbours are not meant to be strangers? What if social distancing didn't also mean social disconnection?
What if we thought of the cab driver as more than just our ride for the day? What if we saw the pain in another human's eyes, and reached out instead of staying in our own bubbles?
What if hate became so rare because love is our default choice? How would it be to live in an India where we didn't judge each other, on any basis!?
What if it was not all about making money and becoming the most powerful? What if it was all about empowering someone else to also dream and grow with you?
The Desh Ki Awaaz challenge is all about being the answer we are praying for.
We pray and ask God to change our country, and God asks, "Who will go for me?"
Dreams only come true when we turn our thoughts into actions. Do what you were always created to do. Love till India is Heaven on earth.
Choose to love with your actions, not just your intentions!
Let us lift up the banner of love over India. She is ours to love!
