Aamir Khan is God sent


As a person committed to building cohesive societies,  I cannot thank God enough for the gift of Aamir Khan to India.
Aamir Khan with the show Satyamev Jayate
He is changing India, and impacting the social attitudes. He is bringing Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs, Jains, Christians, Buddhists, street people, palace people, men, women and children on common grounds. A deep sense of empathy and connection is binding people together. He will eventually strip biases and prejudices in people towards the other and bring mukti to them. 

It is good teaching material for the organizations committed to the well being of women and children and prevent potential abuse.

He has become my new hero in the line of my social heroes who have worked all their lives to build cohesive societies.  Aamir has turned his fame for common good, a pioneer from the fame industry and I hope; he will inspire the other giants like Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwariya Rai, Shahrukh Khan and others to take time out from making money and doing some good. 

You don't need to be a star to do good, you can do it too. Volunteer your time to serve people whom you don't know, it would be better if you serve the one's don't like them. It will do a lot of good for you.

I have seen two people in Dallas die in car accidents – oddly one was an Indian and the other a Pakistani. Both were money making machines and had refused to donate to charity, to do good for others.  What did they take with them?

Aamir Khan has inspired me with ideas on the documentary I am making. He has put together topics that bind people, I am now reorienting myself to redo the documentary, Americans together, building a cohesive society, where no American has to live in apprehension or fear of the other.  You are welcome to participate in the documentary with ideas, funds, labor and energy.

Please do watch these two videos.

  1. Dear Mr. Ghouse
    Have been reading your articles lately. Discovered you vide twitter, when I checked out the tv show Satyamev Jayate and Aamir Khan ( who happens to be one of my favourite Indians, not just for his films). I agree completely with whatever you have written in this post. I've followed Aamir through the media (his interviews, especially since 2005, to Outlook, Tehelka and the like) and his films--and found an Indian who rises above notions of religion and other identities; he speaks and behaves like a truly secular and nationalist Indian (but NOT a jingoistic flag-waver; in fact he once said that man should be able to travel through the world without passport, be a citizen of the world...maybe a little too much, but you get the idea).

    He is someone I relate to.He speaks and acts in a manner similar to my thoughts. BTW, do read similar views in this wonderful book, Being Indian, by Pavan K Varma--all about the idea of India and having a pan-India identity.

    Regards, LS
