The Eight Neighbours Together We Survive Paperback – 2011
We, the eight neighbouring SAARC countries, who are related, directly or remotely, to one of the most ancient civilisations of the world: the Indus Valley Civilisation, should be really concerned about our culture, and be proud of our cultural connectivity. If we are concerned about respecting the cultural diversity of billions of people living in this SAARC Region, if we really believe that aesthetic and ethical experiences are an essential part of our culture, if we believe that we must respect the ‘otherness’ of the others, let us wake up from our slumber, and bring back dreams in our eyes, compassion in our hearts, and sensitivity in our souls. If we want to respect the plurality of the inhabitants of this Region, we will have to learn to respect our neighbours, and resolve to help each other. Let us build bridges of cultural connectivity among the eight neighbouring countries inhabited by a large chunk of humanity, connected by their ancient civilisational and cultural heritage. The SAARC Region, while apportioned by geopolitical realities, is united by its cultural realities which we should recognise and respect. This publication is an attempt to save our dreams, our hope of living and flourishing together, and be proud of our SAARC IDENTITY.
