Campaign for Truth

Make an honest reflection on our thoughts, words and actions... to modulate them for a better self... and making of a better society and strengthening bond of humanity.

By: Himanshu K. Gandhi

Davos, Switzerland will yet again be hosting global leaders from all walks of life, under the aegis of 'The World Economic Forum' later this month... "to encourage businesses, governments and civil society to commit together to improving the state of the world."

Its claim to fame is a non-partisan platform for independent inquiry and thought leadership to wrestle with wide swath of critical world challenges from innovation, to economies, to education, to peace, to hunger.

This year it lists the very same broad array of "Issues"... which are all important... but, misses out yet again, on mention of the big elephant in the room... deceit.

There is no deficit of greater import than that of virtues... and no pandemic of greater threat to humankind than that of deceit. Thread of virtues ties humanity together and to make our bonds stronger we have to rope in stronger virtues.

When will deceit be a hot button issue at Davos? Will it ever be?

Not until all of the crowd pullers gathered at the event... or those who are able to make room for themselves, with a fee of over US$ 75000, have their hands clean. Dirty animals raise no issue with playing in the dirt.

Campaign for truth starts here... now... with a warm invite to all those who have distanced themselves from deceit... or have taken unto themselves a solemn pledge to displace deceit from their being...

Truthfulness is a single domino. Once it falls into place, all other dominoes of righteous conduct follow through in synchronicity.

We all may have, or have had, some… "ignorance", "excuse", "limitation" or "circumstance beyond our control"... to fall into deceit, or not mount enough resistance to it.

Can we all join hands to call deceit out... from within us… or without... and make a real effort to remain away from artifice and deceit?

Any and every humble effort of ours towards self reform will energize those within our circle of influence to do the same. Each one of us supports the other. For our own good and for the common good… let us come together... to help humanity stave off the scourge and pandemic of deceit.

When we take on a solemn pledge... we move to actualize the notion. Kindly join the campaign for truth in self by following the link below and click on "Pledge.

And, when you have done so, kindly enjoin everyone in your circle of influence to do the same.

Let us all do our bit.
