I have not seen Paa. However there is a old saying in Tamil, " Yaadum oore yavarum kelir, thhthum nandrum pirar thara vaara" the approximate meaning is, " all world is mine, all people are my relatives, we are the only one and not the others who is responsible for our happiness and sorrows " That in essence is the concept of the White Globe.J.Krishnamoorthy, the great philosopher claimed allegiance to no nationality, caste, religion, or philosophy, and spent his life traveling the world as an individual speaker, speaking to large and small groups, as well as with interested individuals. Hence the thought is not alien in our culture. But to implement the thought into a reality we have to shed our patriotism as patriotism is a deterrent to the one world concept. same is true of religion,language and culture. We have to create a common language and culture and shun away religion to attain such a status. If we start earnestly we can achieve this goal in another 100-150 years. Under the ...more

Global citizen is a far cry right now. Forget about the major differences between countries that precludes such a possibility in the near future, even small countries are not able to live or think beyond age old historical animosities and work towards a peaceful co-existence that would have ensured that they live in prosperity, with an abundance of wealth sharing the natural bounty of resources that they have in abundance. I will quote just one example of one such nation to reinforce this point and then cursorily mention the other major areas of conflict in this world, where one ethnic lot cannot see eye to eye with each other. Incidentally, as a past itme, I do read extensively of these world conflicts as a matter of interest to know more.

One such example is the former Soviet Republic of Georgia, a country, that is just about 20% more in area than our own Himachal Pradesh, populated with just as many people as in the whole of Chennai and yet divided and at war with each other. A ...more

Hi Sumita, White Globe can be said only a dream or desire which is not possible to get fullfilled , because it the natural resources for which the real fight is being done between countries and rulers of the world . Since ages this fight is being continued for expnsion of nations ,invasion ,indirectly we can say was for the real looting of natural resources. The mughal and the European countries invaded and ruled india was only to loot our country's wealth and for the resources only.The caste creed and religion ,language etc are only beliefs which help people to unite. But the Religious leders tried it to use as a force aginst the exploiting rulers and leaders of rich countries whose main intention and targets are to get the monopoly of rich natural resources of the world .The religious leaders are just fanatics ,they think only in one crude way .Their purpose is only to increase their strength and number of followers in number. But the common man and people of poor countries just g ...more

Dear SG,
Good evening.
I have not seen PAA. Hence, I have no idea about white globe. But being a global citizen without any barriers of caste, creed, religion,language,region .... I would like to say that each one( read most ) of us are truly a global citizen.
Consider some of the mentioned day today activities of majority of We, the people :
1. The effect and presual of remedy about TERRORISM. The whole globe knows and feels the threat of terrorism and wants same result: to do away with it. Each one us literally.
2. Economic Growth : As recession impact sentiment of most of the individual of the universe as well as the quick remedy one wanted is no guess. Whole world wanted the same results. Each of us literally meant the same.
3. Consider a simple fact about charity. When one does it, there is no tag attached. One seeks happiness in the act unprejudiced.
We are global citizens in ethics always . Sometimes that we fight on the basis of caste, creed, religion,language, and regi ...more

I would humbly consider this question as an impossible dream.
Caste, creed, religion, language and regional feelings are prehistoric and here to stay.
They are not created by mankind. God ( Nature ) is responsible for such vivid division.
But globalisation is our creation. It can help us economically, culturally and politically. No more.
I have not a cine goer. Hence missed 'Paa'.
My firm believe is, since we can not grow above all such ill elements it is better to become immune to them.
That will be a better blessing.

The people who control the levers of power have a vested interest in perpetuating the system of barriers of caste creed religion language region, etc. They thive on this. They would never allow dismatiling of such barriers. At present one can be a true globall citizen by getting involved in issues which do nt recognize such barriers. For example, enviornment, public health, conserving water and energy, promoting education, etc. Personally, I have tried to educate people on hygiene, water conservtion, etc. (But at a very small level)

It's good idea not just good it's a solution to current problem. Globalization is fastly taking place uniting commerces and businesses across the world but unfortunately globalization in terms of traditions and cultures is not happening. Even in our own country we always see clashes between religion, region, language etc..Harmonizing with other nations is distant thing but first we need to harmonize with our fellows citizens of the country raising above the barriers of caste, creed, region, religion.

When a war broke out between nations, the people in a nation unite as one. There will be no differentiations between a Tamil,Bengali,keralite, Punjabi etc. But once the threat got resolved every differences between them began to surface.Same is true with the world. If a world threatening aspect surface all people of the world will unite. So everyone of us have, inside us a global citizen. But he is fast asleep. We have to create an atmosphere where in every people love the other whole heartedly. It is not going to be easy. But it is not also impossible. About Paa, yes there are many instances which depict the value of being good to oneself and the world.Such are the values we need to stress and value to create a white Globe.
