What does this quote mean to you?

People tend to forget their duties but rememver their rights._ _

Is Gandhi saying we are selfish and demanding our rights be respected? Not doing “our duties”. Which duties are these? Being respectful of others, doing our duties as citizens?

Indira Gandhi was India’s third prime minister. She addressed food shortages, and improved farming, with technological advances, and introduce hybrid seeds for wheat and rice. This was called the “Green revolution”. Indian became self sufficient in regards to farming! This is awesome, no one should go hungry.

She was thrown in jail. Maybe this was the rights she was talking about?

She was assassinated by her own two body guards.

This encourages me to be more green. I was raised by farmers on my Mom’s side. I love gardening. I have my own mini green house, and I use my own front yard, and I only live in town home. I try to recycle, but maybe I can step it up?! 🙂 I also used to work in community gardens. What an awesome option for getting fresh, healthy food.

I take care of a lady from India. I should ask her about Indira Gandhi. It is defiantly different in this country. Things we can learn from other countries, that is why culture is fascinating and education.

  1. In the words of President Kennedy: Ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country. Is Indira Gandhi’s quote clear now?
