Gradually working through your essays. Time is scarce. Even that is a planetary issue. There is a complete disconnect between "my time" and planetary time. They cannot coexist in a manner in which both can thrive. One must surrender.

Really liked the way to lead the reader to the need for a "planetary language" through Tagore and Gandhi's exchange about Hindi. It has become a burning issue in India now in a rather different context. To be able to speak the planet humans will have to rethink themselves, for they have over centuries created a "humanity" for themselves that's incapable of perceiving the planet.
