Listen to this! A radio show interview with Deborah Frieze about Walking Out of dead-end systems and Walking On to create the world we really want to live in. A deep systems understanding of what's been happening in the world. She mentions several initiatives around the world, including Shikshantar Andolan, Udaipur where the name of the movement got coined.
What she describes is pretty much what my life journey has been about. I'll agree with her on this : It wasn't really about dropping out; it was about fully engaging life and the world. And I'm SSOOO happy off it.
