According to me this picture , shot in Arunachal pradesh , India , is truly minimalist . I love the, silhouette of the Buddhist Gompa , looking proud and resilient , against the turbulent evening sky . A buddhist gompa , is a fortification of learning , lineage and sadhana ( meditation ) ….Most of them follow a general , sacred geometrical mandala design .
To me this picture , is symbolic . It depicts , in a sort of understated manner , the power of knowledge and learning . The fact that Education can weather any storm , and enable one to face the world without fear.
Knowledge – religious , spiritual , scientific ,social , psychological , can transcend boundaries of caste , color or creed , and raise a person to a high pedestal , braving all odds.
Knowledge and Education are two sides of the same coin , and it is this coin which is the key to all social and economic problems faced by the world .
‘EDUCATION IS THE MOST POWERFUL WEAPON WHICH YOU CAN USE , TO CHANGE THE WORLD.’ – Nelson Mandela
