Wish we could find today's symbolisim, today's act, to link together people across class and caste and region, in a spirit of sacrifice. Today's charkha.
Isn't economic or political power about forex reserves? Self sustained economic practices can lead to decrease in imports and increase in exports. India can produce organic food for the world, the advantages we have in that space mainly 3-4 seasons of farming and huge livestock wealth are unmatched elsewhere.

Bharathi's best to rouse us up!
தேடிச் சோறுநிதம் தின்று
பல சின்னஞ்சிறு கதைகள் பேசி
மனம் வாடித் துன்பமிக உழன்று
பிறர் வாட பலசெயல்கள் செய்து
நரை கூடி கிழப்பருவ மெய்தி
கொடும் கூற்றுக் கிரையெனப்பின் மாயும்
பல வேடிக்கை மனிதரை போலே
நான் வீழ்வேனென்று நினைத் தாயோ?
Thedi choru nidham thindru
pala chinnanjiru kadhaigal pesi
manam vaadi thunbamiga uzhandru
pirar vaada pala seyalgal seidhu
narai koodi kizha paruvam eidhi
kodum kootruk kiraiyenappin maayum
pala vedikkai manidharai pole
naan veezhven endre ninaithayo?
People whose only goal is to search (scavenging) for their next meal,
those who are engaged in constant small talk about worthless things ( like their past/finding faults in others),
as a result their minds have wilted and in constant mental despair and agony,
those who committed deeds with the motive of hurting many,
those who are growing old , evident with the greying hair (without achieving anything else),
and then would succumb to the cruel fate of death in the end,
Like these risible people,
Did you think that I will fall prey to these follies?
