In celebration of India's 60th year of independence, the Times of India launched an initiative to inspire the search for hidden talents in everyday people. Among the results is this two-minute video, "Tree," which has become an anthem for India--and is a must-see for all of us.

    " ... and a little child shall lead them ..." Isaiah 11:6. This video made me cry. Just one kid who believes he can make a difference. Very powerful.

    It only takes one person with determination, to inspire others to become part of the solution to any problem. It truly shows the 'power of 1'. Thank you for sharing.

    It takes but one person to have belief and to try for others to follow to make the changes that this troubled world needs.

    small ripples make an ocean.everyone doing good to others will invariably become a good society to live in. we should remember the childhood when we had no inhibitions towards anyone and ready to do anywork.need to practice the same even when we get older.
