How do you change the world?
We at Sattva are doing a quick survey this month. We are trying to find out little things that you do, however trivial it might seem, which you think makes a difference.
For example, I know a friend of mine who starts talking auto drivers whenever he gets in to an auto. And if by any chance if the auto driver has small kids, he buys a packet of gems for the driver's kids. He believes that this will brighten the auto driver's day and that will spread the joy to other people he meets.
My boss religiously switches off every appliance before he goes home from work including the tube lights, monitors, and chargers. Another friend of mine does not honk, unless absolutely necessary and yet another friend does not waste food and makes sure he does not fill his plate with anything he does not need.
Of course we can be cynical about this and say that all this small things would never have any measurable impact. But these people believe that the little difference these things make matters.
So we would like to know if there is this one small thing that you do, or you know a friend who does that you think counts. It might be the most trivial, or a habit that your friends and colleagues always get everyone's attention to. We are extremely interested in every story you have to tell, and every little thing you have to share.
We are planning to collate your response in the January issue of Sattva. And you can then read the list to pick up some of these as your new year Resolutions :)
*This was the mail that has been sent to all readers of Sattva for our January issue. I would love to hear from you all.
