WHAT IS PLURALISM?
"It is respecting the otherness of others"  

We have crystallized the definition of pluralism as, “respecting the otherness of the others and accepting the uniqueness of each one of us”. Pluralism is nothing but an attitude of live and let live, and it is applicable in every aspect of life including culture, society, religion, politics, gender, food, ethnicity, race and other uniqueness’s.   ......... continued at the bottom

2014: A blueprint for a purposeful life | Happy New Year 

You can make your life purposeful, meaningful and enjoyable, and can choose to be the driver of your life or be driven by others. The choice as well as the excuse is yours.  I pray that we retain the ability to choose what we want in our lives.

Success is not necessarily driving a Mercedes, having a luxury home, yacht, or making over 6 figures income. It is not about doing better than your friends, classmates, siblings or parents either.   

Success is rather living the life you want to live with or without things. 

Another year is about to go away. LOL, some of my friends will read this note next year, but those who read it now, I urge you to consider spending an hour with yourselves creating a purposeful blueprint for 2014.

WHAT IS PLURALISM?
"It is respecting the otherness of others"

We have crystallized the definition of pluralism to, “respecting the otherness of the others and accepting the uniqueness of each one of us”. Pluralism is nothing but an attitude of live and let live, and it is applicable in every aspect of life including culture, society, religion, politics, gender, food, ethnicity, race and other uniqueness’s.

By the end of 2020, there will not be a major city in America, and perhaps in the world, where you will not find people of different faiths, cultures, ethnicities, races, nationalities and social backgrounds working, eating, playing, marrying, and doing things together.

We need to prepare ourselves for those eventualities to prevent possible conflicts, and lay a good foundation for nurturing goodwill and effective functioning of the societies. Exclusive communities will become a thing of the past.  If you live amidst others, you must also respect the otherness of others, as you expect them to do the same for you.

You are who you are, and I am who I am. As long as we don't mess with each others space, sustenance and nurturance, and mind our own business, we all will do well.  If we can learn to respect the otherness of other and accept the God-given uniqueness of each one of the seven billion of us, then conflicts fade and solutions emerge.

Pluralism is not a set of rules, it is simply the attitude of live and let live religiously, politically, culturally and socially.  We are committed to building cohesive societies, where no human has to live in apprehension, discomfort or fear of a fellow being.

RELIGIOUS PLURALISM



Is simply honoring how others express their gratitude to the creator without having to agree with their method. The next step is how do we co-exist with our differences for the common good


POLITICAL PLURALISM



Is simply honoring how others express their views on managing the affairs of a group without having to agree. The next step is to focus on what needs to be done for the common good.
