A Sore Thumb

The past few days have been miserable, the extremely painful reason being a sore thumb.
Here I am a simple Marathi lady trying to put down my thoughts and generally be useful to society. How much attention did I really give all my fingers earlier? I tried simply eliminating the thumb from my actions but grip, pinch and every other hand function was impossible. Compensating with other joints complicated things even further.
Society is something like our hand. Every group and strata has its own strengths and weaknesses like our five fingers. All have to function harmoniously for any effective action. Each one however apparantly small or insignificant cannot be done away with.
Dont take my word for it. Think for yourself. Look around. We are Indians and have a social and national responsibility to live harmoniously and work for India's progress.
