Great Minds are Young

Ask Grandmothers; They Know Better ;)

I’ve always been a very strong believer in the human mind and its great potential. I do believe that there’s no one with little capacity, or limited ability if one sets his/her mind to commit, work, and succeed, and this is not an exclusivity to educated people only. As a matter of fact, illiterate people may have a stronger will and determination to make something good, if not great, of the very little ‘things’ they have.

This interesting and inspiring lecture by Bunker Roy, the founder of Barefoot College, highlights the greatness of the least acknowledged illiterate people, who were able to bring to their communities a lot more than what governments, big businesses, and highly educated people could do. There’s a lot to learn here I believe…

Enjoy! (please follow this link)
