Artikrti wishes you a really eventful 2017 filled with meaningful relationships that enrich you. Relationships that connect with cultures and people across the world.
It is during tough times, that the tough get going. And we are going through some very divisive, testing times as a community on this planet. As a specie that is evolving, we owe it to our future generations to be far more welcoming of the differences that exist amongst us a race. Not just recognize and welcome the differences but to respect and embrace them as fascinating aspects that distinguish one group from another. That is really promoting the concept of FriendsWithoutBorders and Aritkrti's mission of CultureConnect. #friendswithoutborders #cultureconnect
Mahatma Gandhi made the world realize the power of non-violence. The spirit of nonviolence has its roots in respecting one another and welcoming the other as a friend and family member. It is great to note that Pope Francis's message to the world on January 1st, World Day of Peace has the theme- Nonviolence: a Style of Politics for Peace. Purely looking at his message as one for the betterment of humanity, without attaching any motives to any specific religious following, his words should be a resolution for each one of us: "I offer heartfelt wishes of peace to the world’s peoples and nations, to heads of state and government, and to religious, civic and community leaders. I wish peace to every man, woman and child, and I pray that the image and likeness of God in each person will enable us to acknowledge one another as sacred gifts endowed with immense dignity. Especially in situations of conflict, let us respect this, our “deepest dignity” and make active nonviolence our way of life."
This spirit underlines Artikrti's mission of being a foil to create a culture-connected society and we hope everyone would echo the sentiment.
