Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta
calls it an "amazing story!"
Here is what he said about "The World is My Country" during our
People-Powered Planet Podcast:
I was absolutely bowled over by Garry Davis in that movie that you showed -- I loved it! Absolutely. It was great. And I always think when you have such crazy thoughts, people will first laugh at you. And when they laugh at you, you can be sure you are on the right path.
When Gandhi thought that he would make India independent, so many laughed at him. A ‘half-naked Faqir’ is what people used to call him. Because he used to wear only one piece of cloth. He said, ‘half my country does not have enough clothes.
How can I be wearing two pieces of clothes?
To me, it ALL starts with a dream, with a vision. From a dream, when you chisel it with a vision, do you come out with a plan? And that is when you spend your entire life just as Garry Davis did. You have a vision, and you want to fulfill that. An amazing story it was! I think we need many, many, many such people in every part of the world, to be able to make a difference.
How often have these ideas resonated with so many of us. They would seem Utopian but here was a man who believed in his dreams and took it forward. Maybe he was far ahead of his times...but as John Lennon said in Imagine:
Imagine there's no countries, It isn't hard to do; Nothing to kill or die for...
Imagine all the people living life in peace.
The Rotary spot and the film were originally broadcast on over 100 PBS affiliates coast-to-coast.
Enthusiastic comments have poured in from viewers of the film.
