If you are among the very young at heart
Whoever said that growing older makes you cynical was bonkers. Our cover story this issue is about a revolutionary nonagenarian who is still driven by the same youthful idealism that gripped him eight decades ago. Sri Binod Bihari Chowdhury, a disciple of Mastarda Shurjo Sen began his activism at the age of 16 and he is currently busy trying to reinvigorate his political career. This goes to show that one is not necessarily ever too young or too old to want to change the world.
Here's another reminder that Insight is getting bigger, we're going to have more pages and we would like you to give us feedback whenever you can. Right now, for our “Story” section, beginning with this issue, we are planning to do a series on folk tales from various regions. Stories in this largely ignored body of literature teaches often come in the guise of a moral fable, but they really contain wisdom about the virtues of prudence and the unwritten laws of power. We hope you enjoy it.
Finally, we'd like teachers from underprivileged schools and colleges to help us out with the Learners' Club. This will help us make the page more interactive and tailor things to your needs.
