Richard Brinsley Sheridan

'Grand Theft Auto', in its deification of antisocial behavior, is where I heap the most of my scorn.
As Indians, we take great pride in the fact that we are a progressive nation. We are proud of our democracy, our secular values as well as our entrepreneurial spirit.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
