Strategic Planning (3)

One of the many insights that really appealed to me was when Prof. Haragopal spoke of secularism.  He defined it not in terms the state not supporting any religion or leaving out of religion from all politics (both of which is impossible in today's national scenario), but in terms of viewing a human being as a human being.

When any other adjective/adverb describes the human being, it only divides. View as a human being and relate to a human being and then all differences, “adjectives” (religion, gender, caste…) are seen as differences to be celebrated / enriched rather than act as stumbling blocks… Therefore what is your focus? Building the “adjective” or the basic common platform, of being human??
