Views on Culture
The cultured mind... should have it's windows and doors open. It should understand others' viewpoint fully even though it cannot agree with it. The question of agreement and disagreement arises only after we understand a thing. Otherwise, it is blind negation, which is not cultured approach to any question. - JL Nehru
