It takes a while to learn and experience the strength and joy in engaging with transformational ideas; ideas that are seeded from conviction and a belief guided by a larger truth. Such work, even if incubating in the quietude of one’s thoughts, soon emerge as a fragrant mulled wine to be shared and savoured; or as a powerful voice that can resonate and touch people’s lives, often into leaping out of comfort zones into a collective cause.
These are voices that need to be heard. Gut-level, dissenting voices that speak for the people, for their awareness of and upliftment from the flagrant violence and injustices on human rights. These are voices from diverse corners of the world; from people practicing a diversity of disciplines that are passionate compulsions in their lives.
