India was a place of dramatic contrasts. I had read about the poverty,but I was struck by how "normal" it all was...how unextraordinary it was in the context of the society. Sort of the way our posh suburbs are unextraordinary in their excess.
More than just restoring the absence of enough, there seems to be a need to restore excess to an adequate amount. I think that achieving more balance is the key to making sure we all have "enough." Our understanding of need is twisted by the abundance by which we are sometimes overwhelmed.
