Indian religion has always felt that since the minds, the temperaments and the intellectual affinities of men are unlimited in their variety, a perfect liberty of thought and of worship must be allowed to the individual in his approach to the Infinite.
The work of the individual still remains the spark that moves mankind ahead even more than teamwork.
Sometimes I think sportsmanship is a little bit forgotten in place of the individual attention.
