Why we are here: A note from Abhijit Pawar
We as an organization believe to be a platform, to help every individual ignite the fires of wisdom, which will help burn the ignorance or falsehoods prevailing in todays society at large.
At the individual level, one needs to be educated on developing the intellect along with intelligence, through the ancient global learnings, which have already shown the way to achieve the desired results of a peaceful, prosperous and a friendly society, throughout history, at various periods of time.
For any transformation to take effect in order to have long-lasting impact, all citizens from top to bottom need to be engaged with at least a weekly frequency and consistency.
It is similar to a weekly or daily physical faith meeting (either in a place of one’s faith or any other place), where the believers and initial non believers, meet and listen to teachings of their Master/ Guru/ (in the name of God or a higher entity).
“…one needs to be educated on developing the intellect along with intelligence, through the ancient global learnings.”
Abhijit Pawar, Chairman – APG & DCF
Those, who do so consistently, their minds are transformed through listening and then gradually as they reflect and eventually believe in those teachings, their righteous actions will necessarily follow.
Unfortunately or fortunately, it all depends on the direction of type of teachings, as to which direction the mind will move towards … either evolutionary or unfortunately, devolutionary.
We can see this effectively how this technique is used in the making of a Terrorist or a Samaritan, all depending on the nature of the teachings!
This change has to begin, by a influential entity, which can be at an individual or platform level, may start at the bottom or top.
The danger of starting from bottom up only, may lead to a disastrous revolution, unless led by a influential individual who is truly selfless as well as comptent and capable of delivering the long-term desired change. This is very rare, and mostly solves only one major problem and may not be able to lead post this problem is solved. One may lead and get indépendance from an oppressive regime or leader, but not necessarily deliver the long term desired results of a society as frequently seen when a dictator is replaced by another dictator, through revolutions, ending in a bad to worse situations. Rarely is it otherwise.
Therefore we need to target the top simultaneously as well. Where they need to start changing in order to evolve, by listening, engaging and implementing what the grassroots wants as well as constantly learning and sharing the same with the them.
The top needs to lead by example and action, in order for the grassroots to believe and trust in the leadership. Only through an effective and open communication, and with a dialogue not necessarily, a debate everytime, can we move forward.
The grassroots need to be taught to listen, reflect and meditate on issues at hand and the solutions as brought forward by the collective, but implemented by the top.
I believe that APG along with Delivering Change Foundation (DCF) can be this super influential platform.
