I have read this book so many times and will post my favorite quotes here … do read the book #thepsychologyofmoney

The drivers pointed out to a cab towards the end. I was miffed.

One of the persons came up to me and asked, “Ma’am- single lady passenger? That pink taxi is for you.”

I was delighted to find a lady driver. As a woman traveller, I loved the assurance of my safety.
I smiled, knowing I could catch up on some sleep peacefully, as she would take care of me.
Well, the story doesn’t end here.

Around Brigade road, she slowed down for Friday night revellers. I suddenly remembered my duty-free shopping bag that l had left hanging on the trolley.

Die #Initiative #GemeinsamGegenCorona ernennt nun den #Mittwoch zum " #StellDeineFragenHoch3000 - Mittwoch". Hoch 3000 soll implizieren, wie INTENS heute hier FRAGEN gestellt werden sollen und dürfen!

Seht es als einen #Sammelthread , den wir jeden Mittwoch neu aufmachen werden!
Wir fangen einfach mal an

• Wer arbeitet in Deutschland eigentlich für wen? Die #BuReg für das #Volk oder das Volk für die #Regierung ? o.O

• Warum lässt sich ein großer Teil des Volkes wie Fußabtreter behandeln, obwohl es Rechte gibt? o.O

• Warum sind #Minderheiten ( = #Querdenker ) 'lauter' und 'polarisieren' so sehr, obwohl sie so 'Wenige' (von 83Mio in D) sind?

• Möchte überhaupt noch irgendjemand der Gegenpol sein zu den polarisiernden Querdenkern + #InFam Eltern?

When multiple attempts to contact his local govt. authority went ignored, Hanumanth took the responsibility onto himself to clean up the streets of his village.
Having discovered that hoards of garbage littered his streets unchecked, he stepped out of his comfort zone and reached out to his local Panchayat authority to have it cleared.
Upon no response, Hanumanth planned a campaign with the children of his village who helped him and other volunteering community members clean up the garbage and dispose it.

(1/x) Kurzer #Thread zu gestern Abend: am gestrigen #Montag #Abend um 19 Uhr versammelten sich Menschen am #Gänseliesel um gegen die staatlichen #Verordnungen zur #Bekämpfung der #Coronavirus #Pandemie zu protestieren.
(2/x) Sie organisierten dazu einen sog. „#Corona #Spaziergang“ um nicht als #Versammlung gewertet zu werden, als Vorbild gelten die „#Hygienedemos“ aus #Berlin.
(3/x) In #Göttingen waren es ein bunter Haufen aus #Impfgegnern / #Hippies aus Umfeld der „linken #Szene“ / #Verschwörungstheoretiker|n und „Mitglieder“ der neuen Partei „#Widerstand2000“ unterwegs.
