Culture Curry

I received this beautiful pictorial comparison of Asian and Western cultures through e-mail. The mail claims that the pictorial representations were designed by a Liu Young, the design is a result of extensive research. The red symbolizes Asian cultural concepts while blue is for the Western culture. The Asians represented here include Indians, Japanese, Thais, Koreans, Indonesian, and Malay.

Have a look and enjoy. Please do not forget to leave a comment.

The Question...

What can we do to help our country combat Terrorism?
I know this must be the most commonest of all the questions that all of you must have come across since the events of the past week. But before you jump to conclusions let me explain.
Enough words have been written, enough candles have been lit. Now, my question seeks to go beyond that. It wants to know what real action can be taken by us, the common people.
Can we only protest, shout slogans, passively and wait for certain lousy people to change things for us??? Can we not do something...anything, take an active part and be the change???
I am not against protests and dharnas for the cause but I want to know if there are any more alternatives to approach the solution, which we the people can implement.
Please do try to answer this question of mine.
