    Satish says - "When we are unselfconscious, unacquisitive, and act without desire for recognition or reward, when our work emerges from a pure heart like that of a child, our actions become a gift." - which is essentially paraphrasing what Sri Krishna says in Bhagavad Gita, one of the sacred texts of Hinduism. Now there is no copyright on that, but that said why is Satish hesitating to at least attribute that message to Sri Krishna, Bhagavad Gita and Hindusim. And to top it how he thanks everyone but Sri Krishna - is it a case of hiding the sources? And the term 'adivasis' - very funny, falling for the Aryan invasion tripe- hook, line and sinker.
