What way you contribute for changes in yourself for the good of others. Do not hesitate to write even if it is small. I do spare sometime for people who ask some help which I can do it with ease,but for them it is great help.

Should we not take some responsibility to change something ourselves so that other can follow? Thanks for your interesting response.

To change the world we have to change ourselves. But I think it won't happen before many people die way before their time.

I do not think one should ask for toll of somebody to change the society. Change is a constant process and it could be negative and positive or both. The topic is whether by changing oneself in a small way or big way, can one expect a greater change in the society.

It is no mean a task. It is excellent service to humans. Please keep it up. Of late people are so much engrossed in their own personal lives, they hardly find time for others. Even if they find time, they have no inclination to spare it for the sake of others. Due to technology, world is becoming smaller. The minds of the people too. Thanks for your very good response.

You cannot change every body else... So the best way to make a difference is to change yourself and let others emulate you!

The little things make the big change...In my religion ... stree in given on doing small but good deeds ... such as if you found any stone..brick... on the footpath... common walking way.... put it aside to avoid any happening.. What i am doing is very simple thing... i always try to deal the people in pleasant way.. i never decieve or cheat anyone.. i believe this small thing can change the world...

very true,one good deed always deserves another. I have come across so many people who just help because they were helped by others once. universe I believe is like boomrang what you throw at others comes back to you.

Your picture is very nice but caption is quite bad. One cannot discard the old people. We need all of them. Among them one could be my grand father. They have also toiled their life for betterment of their children, may be they have contributed in their own way to the society. There are plenty of opportunities for young people. These opportunities cannot be grabbed by old people. They need rest, they need care. You cannot explode them. You get this feeling because the blood running in you is hot - donot care for any one attitude. Your response is excellent and your attitude towards life is admirable and I fully agree with you. Thanks for responding to my discussion.

Thanks again. But you misunderstood my caption. What i mean is this; the old their are not our old but goodies but the old self. I am not talking to other people but myself. There are bad things or bad attitudes in ourselves need to be break so that the goodness will be shown or newness of oneself can be developed. Thus, we can of help in the changes in this world!

I believe this faithfully and wish that everybody else would follow suit. I try very hard to set a good example to my children first. I never lecture my children of good behavoir and ethics. I practice them myself so that they can watch and follow. I strongly believe that children live what they see. My hubby gets very angry on the road while driving cos 90% of the drivers are useless and never ever stick to road rules in my country. I always tell him never to boil his blood cos its only bad for him and we will never be able to correct others. Best thing is to correct ourselves. I hope this discussion get wings so others also get a chance to read this and post their ideas on this.

I am not doing any thing very big But try to do few things in day to day life ! 1.Like using Green bags when I go shopping 2 Try not to waste water . 3 i dont litter in public places keep a small bag to keep any rubbish & dispose properly . 4 Try to use only things which can be recycled 5 Help an old or blind person cross the road .Or offer them seat in transport . 6 The best thing i feel i do is to teach these small things to my daughter . By doing these small changes we can make our world better .

The statements made by you, if followed by some percentage of our population would do a lot of change in the world. The examples stated by you and adopted by you are worthy of emulation by one and all. Thanks for very interesting response.
