“Unity in Diversity”   Leave a comment

It’s the motto India chose to celebrate the aniversary of the fundation as a single country.

The following figures represent places which are only a few hundred metres apart:

Figure 1: The Hyderabad International Convention Centre Figure 2: Some tent-houses, in a ground field just next to the road

Note that, if you decide to sleep at the 5-star-plus hotel connected to the convention centre, you will miss the pleasure to see figure 2. If instead you decide to be born in Hyderabad, it’s most likely that you will miss the pleasure to see figure 1.

Another question is: is it really possible to to talk about space in a country where so many people live in such a condition? The theme of this year’s congress is "Touching humanity: space to improve the quality of life". But it looks to me that here something else is needed, to improve the quality of life.
