Just a few centimetres of movement in the tectonic plates is enough to cause cataclysmic effects on the surface of the earth’s crust.
While these are physical environmental changes ,what is of greater need are tectonic shifts in several aspects of our daily lives.
Civic discipline, corruption, traffic discipline, gender equality are just a few of the things that need a Himalayan shift.
While mountains can be moved during earthquakes – moving files and matters in some government offices seem to need forces that are more powerful than 9 on the Richter scale.
Shifting distorted public mind sets and biases to create a more egalitarian society apparently needs herculean earth-moving forces.
The amazing fact is that all these are human characteristics that exist only in one’s mind and actually needs only the feather touch of common sense and maturity to cause a tectonic shift in thinking, attitudes, and behaviour.
