No who is talking of violent changes! Violence does nobody any good.
Bloody revolutions are meaningless. Indeed if there is to be a revolution
it has to come from within us. The ingredient is us. It is our skewed
sense of social priorities which needs to be changed. We are however
digressing from the thread. The question is Do we need culture when
millions are not able to ensure their survival into the next hour!?
