Public Policy

Religion cannot unite the people. To unite people, we need harmony and for harmony to happen, we can’t have religion as a uniting factor because in religion, too much of differences exist be it about doctrine, practice or observances and when differences exist, nothing gets united. Not unless we learn how to live with the differences by being tolerant, by being accommodative, by compromising or by opening up our heart and minds with a sincere willingness to allow peace, understanding and goodwill to come into our lives. At the extreme end, one can also convert others by duress but is that a correct thing to do? Even if only one religion is left to exist in the end, that religion itself is also divided into many, many denominations. My conclusion is we can’t use religion to unite us. We must choose something else. Like a good public policy perhaps. Or maybe sports.

Age of Entrepreneurship

There are artists and there are those who tried to be artists. There are artists whom at 70 years old are still waiting to be discovered and there are those tried to be artists who became well known not for their art but for their controversiality. In every line, what sells is the ability to sell yourself and your ideas. And to be a smooth hand with the art of the deal. That is what that won the hearts of many a curator. There you go! I have explained it. And it has got nothing to do with how ridiculous contemporary can get. It’s called the age of entrepreneurship.
