New Delhi hosted a momentous event from March 11-13, the World Culture Festival. In the words of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the moving force behind the festival, "We are inspired to...realize the dream, where life becomes a celebration and the world will become one family. The World Culture Festival is a celebration of achievements and a vision to do better." There is a connection between "One World Family" and some of the ideas that inspired Martin Luther King and the American Civil Rights movement. I explore these here.
