Excerpts from the book ‘Ignited Minds‘ Written By A.P.J. Abdul Kalamji
SUMMARY Our spiritual wisdom has been our strength. We survived as a nation the onslaughts of invaders and the numbing effects of colonialism.
We have also learnt to adjust to the rifts and divisions in our own society. But in the process of all the adjustment, we also lowered our aims and expectations.
We must regain our broad outlook and draw upon our heritage and wisdom to enrich our lives.
The fact that we advance techonologically does not preclude spiritual development.
We need to home-grow our own model of development based on our inherent strengths.
