In this blog, I would like to give an example to Friedman’s work. The news which hits the daily newspapers main pages is about the execution of SETHUSAMUDRAM PROJECT. One side, the concerned ministry tries to complete the project soon, thereby enabling the sea trade with the reduction of 350 nautical miles [650 Km] travel distance. On the other side, people oppose this project by claiming that the bridge which lies inside the sea was built by Rama, should not be destructed.
The example given before perfectly aligns to Friedmans’ thought. World steps ahead fast with innovations, advancements what ever. At the same time there are some hindering forces existing.
Whether you "Go ahead or Stay behind"
NOTE – The blog does not discuss about which is RIGHT or WRONG. It identifies an example to Thomas Friedman’s thought. Might be, he would include this example in future editions if he reads this blog. [That’s greedy.]
