In complete agreement with the baseline of this idea, I always believed that any being that consumes, can contribute and this basic democratic idea is reflected in all my work here and there. For example, see this recent submission for 'Clean Energy Lab for Not-Profits' incubation program contest.

Manish Puranik's insight:
आज हे सगळे आठवण्याचे कारण म्हणजे शशी कपूर यांचे निधन! अमिताभने आम्हाला व्यवस्थेतील अन्यायाविरुद्ध उभे रहायला आणि निर्भीडपणे लढायला शिकविले तर शशी कपूर यांनी आम्हाला, 'हमारे खयालात कितने मिलते है...' म्हणत लोभसवाणे फ्लर्टींग करत 'मोहोब्बत बडे कामकी चीज है...' हे तर शिकवलेच पण त्याबरोबरच खाण कामगारांच्या हक्कासाठी इंजिनियरच्या नोकरीत असून खाण मालकाशी लढायला शिकवले आणि सांस्कृतिक अभिजातता म्हणजे काय याचा सर्वोत्तम नमुना 'उत्सव'च्या रूपाने सादर केला.

Naomi Klein: How shocking events can spark positive change | TED Talk

Naomi Klein: How shocking events can spark positive change | TED Talk | Life etc. | Scoop.it
Things are pretty shocking out there right now -- record-breaking storms, deadly terror attacks, thousands of migrants disappearing beneath the waves and openly supremacist movements rising. Are we responding with the urgency that these overlapping crises demand from us? Journalist and activist Naomi Klein studies how governments use large-scale shocks to push societies backward. She shares a few propositions from "The Leap" -- a manifesto she wrote alongside indigenous elders, climate change activists, union leaders and others from different backgrounds -- which envisions a world after we've already made the transition to a clean economy and a much fairer society. "The shocking events that fill us with dread today can transform us, and they can transform the world for the better," Klein says. "But first we need to picture the world that we're fighting for. And we have to dream it up together."
Manish Puranik's insight:
'The walls between our silos also means that our solutions, when they emerge, are also disconnected from each other. So progressives now have this long list of demands that I was mentioning earlier, those "yeses." But what we're still missing is that coherent picture of the world we're fighting for.'
