Three cups of tea

If there was one thing I was to recommend in a whole year, even a decade, - I would say read "Three Cups of tea". For the past few days, despite personal commitments I have stayed up until 4 AM to, finish this book, - no to soak in this most amazing journey of our times. In the midst of us is a Gandhi, a MLK and I owe it to my eight year old for the wonderful opportunity of a lifetime to be able to meet this gentle giant - Greg Mortenson. I wonder what I would do if I get to meet him again - having read his book and known him better. Probably he deserves that his feet be washed and the water be cherished... - an ancient hindu way to honor the sage that he is.
Now what is it that has offset this chant of worship. Well - go to http://www.threecupsoftea.com or http://www.penniesforpeace.org to see what mountains Greg has moved in the past decade or so. His sole mission is to educate the kids of farway Pakistan and Afghanistan. He believes education is the only way to end the violence, mistrust and hatered that has been built into our very pysche.
Personally, I have decided one thing - I will donate my time, money and energy to support Greg and other projects similar to his. I hope to see him and his work acknowledged with a noble peace prize within the next 3 years.

Dear Vishal, this is a great article. I already read Greg's biography in order to find his roots and I found it: "His father, Dempsey, founded Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Center (KCMC) www.kcmc.ac.tz a hospital, and mother, Jerene, founded the International School
Moshi." People like Gandhi are living demonstration that Jesus Christ words are living words for all ages, for all centuries. Maybe that any of us can't be a Greg or Gandhi but All of us can put in practice Jesus' Sermon on the Mount.
Best Regards,

To be a upright human being is to procure a philanthropic of openness to the in the seventh heaven, an ability to group aleatory things beyond your own restrain, that can lead you to be shattered in hugely extreme circumstances as which you were not to blame. That says something very weighty with the condition of the righteous compulsion: that it is based on a trust in the uncertain and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a plant than like a jewel, something rather tenuous, but whose extremely precise handsomeness is inseparable from that fragility.
