“If there is a 'Oneness of Humanity', then there is no basis to kill. I love my life. Everyone has the right to live happily. Most problems are created by man. Killing, bullying, cheating exploitation. We have to find long term solutions. This very difficult.

“The gap between rich and poor is not only morally wrong, but practically wrong.”
“Keep inner strength and then utilise common sense and look at things realistically.”
