Introspect to realize what went wrong, only then you find new approaches to engage with the various problems of India. 

To get in touch with the many problems, still existing in Indian Society, the piece of Silk in brochure( http://issuu.com/elias.schmidt/docs/brochure_pvcrh_2011?mode=window&backgroundColor=%23222222) should be a symbol to feel and don’t forget , what still worth to fight for – the beauty and variety of India and its people. Don’t leave them behind.
