“We live in a world of vast opportunities,stark contradictions and grave challenges. In this light, passivism and apathy are not options or choices that we can afford or condone. Nor can the world community respond appropriately if it does not empower itself with inclusive multidisciplinary thinking, tolerance for others and a global outlook to the policy issues it faces"
