in search of new meanings: shodhyatra in punjab

in Punjab, jalandhar, 32nd shodhyatra

for walking in search of
schools where inspired teachers intrigue children with mysteries of nature, villages where female foetus does not struggle to survive, soil of farms which does not get poisoned by the toxic chemicals just because she is tired, farmers who still maintain diversity of coloured cotton, yellow mustard and nutritious wheat, workshops in which mechanics innovate to develop new machineries for farm or firms, paths on which elderly walk with respect and head raised high

we are in search of all that is worth sustaining
all that is worth remembering
so that stories we tell our grandchildren
are full of faith
hopes
trust
commitment to community well being
and youth who will connect with unmet social needs worldwide
meeting at PTU today at 11 to link tech youth with real life challenges of our society
