For Your Reflection and Contemplation
Below you will find the central concerns and questions of VIM.
They are meant to help you to prepare your contribution. The video (or any other creative ouput) needs
to capture your journey of struggles and triumphs, challenges and contradictions, insights and lessons.
Its your personal journey to contribute to an inclusive, compassionate common good.
Are we in the midst of moral, material and spiritual crises, at all levels? For instance, why do we talk of peace but sell weapons for huge profits?
Is poverty the other side of affluence? Why is affluence not a problem?
Are we losing lives to systemic meaninglessness? Why is suicide high among young people in many places in the world?
Are ordinary folks 'fated' to live in a world of vices, profanity and compromises? Is a value-based life only for monks and mahatmas?
Are 'be realistic' or 'be practical' really the system's hegemonic code words to compromise or 'toe the line'? To live life do we have to compromise and do things we don't believe in?
Is doing good amidst massive personal, professional and systemic challenges possible? Or, is it just wishful thinking?
