Went and bought the Eve Ensler's the Good Body.. a book I recommend to all women..
The following passage caught my attention.. it is what Priya and Indian lady tells Eve Ensler: "I think you only know one country - a little country, your body with a population of one. You spend all your time fixing and renovating it. You're missing the rest of the world. You need to look up, you need to look out.."
Come to think of it, this does not apply simply to our physical body but has almost become a way of life in our times.. time we looked up and out...
PS: one almost felt a great a beginning was made in the right direction with the outrage against the jessica lal verdict till one heard of the varanasi blasts.. but then let us hope that civil society will take on this head on and not be swayed by vested interests..
