Opinion: Words of wisdom

POSTED: 03/17/14 6:33 PM

Sometimes words of wisdom come from far away but they are still very recognizable. Like this report from India where the eldest politician in the world has announced that he is going to retire.

Rishang Keushing is 94 and he is a Member of the Parliament in India. He is a tee-totaller, maintains good health and will spend his time after his retirement on school projects in the region where he was born in north-east India.

Not surprisingly, Keishing notes that the times have changed. “Before it was silent in congress like in church and people listened attentively to the debates. These days there is no more respect for the president and the meetings are often a waste of time.”
