Four years ago, I started something called 'The Kindness Project' for my students to do in my TYBMM class. It ended up changing my life. I recently gave a #TEDxTalk on it: 'How Stories Can Heal Our Divided World'. Check it out :)

I do hope we introspect now and stop reducing India to binaries. It's unfair, incorrect and misleading to say that BJP won because everyone who voted for them is hateful or bigoted. The majority of our country just wants a better life for themselves than a worse life for others.
Nobody can claim to know what India is because we only ever know the India in our own circles: that speaks like us, behaves like us, and thinks like us. It's time for us to expand these circles and interact with the India we haven't before. To work for a better future.. together.
No one can or should be reduced to their one opinion, their one political view or their one vote. Instead of letting social media outrage dictate our understanding of India, it is time we respect each other & just talk: as fellow Indians who have lived side by side for centuries.
Everyone votes for different reasons - same for a better life, some for better policies, some for pride and yes, some for hate as well. But if we colour those unlike us with being less moral than us, we will always be divided and ripe for being manipulated by media & politicians.
