Day 201


There is no I in TEAM. – Unknown

It’s 9: 26 PM on day 201 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a banana for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign  for a few hours – no luck – listen to music, feed myself rice and curry for lunch, watched TV while feeding myself bread and baked beans   for dinner and tweet about campaign some more –still no luck.

Today as I watched the Cricket World Cup final India vs. Sri Lanka and heard my parents joyous screams when the match resulted in a victory for India I realized that the reason people were so passionate about sports was because they felt connected to something greater than themselves if only for a few hours. Do you support a specific team to feel a oneness with others?

  1. I’m not a sports fan, but I do understand my own need to connect with something greater than myself.

    The cause for human freedom, for example. I have committed some thousands of hours to study it, discover its meaning, think about the modern challenges we must overcome , write about it, discuss it, argue it, and encourage others to give themselves to its advancement.
