President Pranab Mukherjee said in Ahmedabad on Tuesday,emphasising on cleansing minds of divisive thoughts Speaking at a function in Sabarmati Ashram Mukherjee cited Gandhiji’s vision of India as an inclusive nation where every section of population lived in equality and enjoyed equal opportunity and said the essence of being human is "our trust of each other" "Every day we see unprecedented violence all around us At the heart of this violence is darkness fear and mistrust While we invent new modes of combating this ever spiralling violence we must not forget the power of non-violence dialogue and reason" he said File photo of Pranab Mukherjee PTI Mukherjee has been speaking against intolerance after the Dadri lynching incident and subsequent events He said Ahimsa (or non-violence) is not a negative force and "we must free our public discourse of all forms of violence physical as well as verbal Only a non-violent society can ensure the participation of all sections of the people especially the marginalised and the dispossessed in our democratic process" The President said Gandhiji gave us an object lesson in Ahimsa by taking the assassin’s bullets with the name of Rama on his lips Inaugurating the Archives and Research Centre at the Ashram he said the real dirt of India lies not in our streets but in our minds and in our unwillingness to let go of views that divide society into ‘them’ and ‘us’ ‘pure’ and ‘impure’ "We must make a success of the laudable and welcome Swacch Bharat MissionHowever this also must be seen as just the beginning of a much larger and intense effort to cleanse minds and fulfil Gandhiji’s vision in all its aspects" said Mukherjee who is on three-day maiden visit to Gujarat He said "So long as the dehumanising practice of carrying night soil persists we cannot have real Swacch Bharat" PTI Written by Agencies | Mumbai | Published: April 3 2009 9:51 am Related News After failing to resolve the issue of profit sharing with multiplex

peace That was true of Matthew Broderick’s scheming teacher in ‘Election’Jack Nicholson’s searching retiree in ‘About Schmidt’ and Paul Giamatti’s sloppy oenophile in ‘Sideways’ and it’s certainly true of George Clooney in ‘The Descendants’ As real-estate lawyer Matt Kinghe finds everything in his life is in flux and on the verge of collapse simultaneously He is not just functioning one day at a timehe is navigating the chaos one hour at a time This is not any easier even though he lives in Hawaiia place that is supposed to be paradise Clooney being Clooneythoughhe makes every stage of his character’s arc believablefrom grief through anger and eventual acceptanceand he gives a performance that is so understated as to appear effortless Having long ago learned to jettison movie-star

discoverybut he also is curious to find out who this guy isand his bumbling attempts at casual stalking provide some much-needed comic relief As if all this were not enough to handleMatt’s enormous family has put him in charge of deciding what to do with the 25000 acres (10120 hectares) of pristine land on Kauai that they have inherited from their royal Hawaiian ancestors A deadline is looming

Nat Faxon and Jim Rash) Matt wades through all these troublesand while everything would seem to be at stake at oncePayne’s pacing is often so languid that we do not feel the sort of mounting tension that we should Maybe it has something to do with the laid-back setting (although it is novel to see this beautiful place through the eyes of everyday residentsrather than tourists) ‘The Descendants’ also loses some of its power in the frequent use of voiceoverwhich tends to spell out too much But the story keeps you guessing as to where it will goand it features some piercing moments of emotional
