Is The Virus A Threat to Your Religion?Jun 06, 2021
suddenly: "You're going to die" may not be a great idea. In this country, something very important was done, people have dispelled this fundamental wisdom. It was very important to have a child. Not because of gender discrimination because the nature and format of society was such, if you had daughters, at a certain age they would leave. Even if they are ten or twenty-five kilometers from you in a nearby town. Well, either she's pregnant or she has a small child or she has responsibilities for that house she's gone to and twenty-five kilometers she has to walk back and forth, there's no transportation.
So chances are if you're dying she won't come. This is always the case. Once again, we have gone to the same place now because most of the people, their children are in another country, in some other far away place that they cannot come, or it is because of the
virusthat they cannot come. So that's why having a child was very important because a fundamental duty that was very well established in this society, unfortunately forgotten today is, at the moment when a father becomes a place where a man gets married... the son gets married At the moment that happens, one of the duties of the son is to take the parents in yatra to the places of pilgrimage.
This is not tourism, this is to remind you that you are mortal, that
yourtime is fast approaching. This is the time to invest in
yourinner well-being. Recently there was a video that went viral across the country, a man carrying his elderly mother. Have you seen that video? Because this boy was very sick when he was young and he... everyone thought that he was going to die, but his mother didn't give up and prayed to some god, so intensely and without any medicine, this boy got well. So, since then, he has wanted to take his mother, who is his dream, to go to the pilgrimage sites of the country.
Now, being a poor man, he had no money, he just put a bamboo thing, on one side some things he needs: clothes, this and that, on the other side, his mother, and he is carrying her and walking from place to place. other. wherever she wanted to go across the country, carrying her mother and an equal amount of cargo on her back and walking, this video went wild across the country. Because this was the fundamental duty, before they become unable to walk and do things - A son must take them to places of pilgrimage. Pilgrimage sites not for tourist purposes, but to remind them that they need to turn inward.
Well, that's gone completely out of our league, we all think, even if you're seventy or eighty, you should go to the movies, you should go to the party, you should be doing this, you should be doing that. , because all this has come to us from the West, even if you are eighty years old, you must behave as if you were eighteen. Now too, you must be on the dating app! Yes they are. Unfortunately. So suddenly telling them may not be a good idea. This is something only you can judge on... based on an individual person, there is no common recipe, but it is important, before you get sick, you should be introduced to this.
You must not leave with this ignorance that you are going to live forever. So they'll be engaged with their kids to some degree, then with their own careers and jobs and whatever, they're retired, now they're getting old. Now they are desperate, "Grandchildren, where are the grandchildren?" How come you love those unborn children so much when you have no care or concern for the children who are on the street? How come you have so much love for non-existent children because you want to commit to life once more, as if it were a new beginning? Because it will give you a new lease on life, another level of participation, another level of illusion that "things will go on forever." So if all those things are not there, people will get frustrated, they will lose their minds, all these things will happen, unfortunately.
So whether or not you should tell them if they are sick and moving towards their time, maybe not in as many words, but you should create an atmosphere that feels familiar to them. Otherwise, you are committing a great injustice. You are doing a great injustice by creating a false atmosphere, "Everything will be fine, no, no, we are going to come home, you are in a hospital. Don't worry, we are going to come home, everything." it's going to be OK. And then your grandson's wedding is coming up. Five years later, we will do, what will we do?
Plan for it." This is a rubbish form of existence. It is very important, for every human being, that as we approach the close of our time, we approach it sensibly and consciously, as much as possible. If you are absolutely aware, there is nothing to say about it, that will be handled. Otherwise, they did not live like this, they do not have that ability at the moment, but you have to create an atmosphere that is moving in this direction. I may not be able to tell them directly They can be terrified, they can be scared, and you know all those things, but you have to create an atmosphere, a spiritual atmosphere.
When we say spiritual, something that is not of the body. That's all. Right now, life is moving you into a place where it's not about the body anymore. You should understand this point. But in a lot of homes today, it's... I've... I've been in some homes, unfortunately, where this has happened, they're trying to cook all their favorite foods. and they say: " Eat this, eat that." Maybe if that's your way of anticipating his death, it's unlucky again. That's not the way to do it. It is very, very, very important that bodily concerns be knocked down: from food, from this, from comfort and from clothes, you need to knock him down and make it very clear to him, if not in words, creating an atmosphere that our time is approaching.
It will come to all of us. When it comes to this person, it is important that the necessary atmosphere is provided, and the whole family or anyone else who is there, create such an atmosphere of not pushing them to this and that, but allowing them to move in that direction. There are many simple things that one can do. I think in the book of death we have handled this elaborately, but the simple things you can do is just an oil lamp: a vegetable oil lamp or a ghee lamp. The oil lamp is better. Sorry, the vegetable oil lamp is better, a lamp.
Some simple chant or something to remind you that it's not about the body. If there is so much reminder, there is enough wisdom in life to hold on to it. But if you haven't said a word until now, someone isn't facing that direction at all, and all of a sudden you go and say, "You're going to die," that could be very cruel, and it could unnecessarily create a disturbance that's not necessary. for that person. So how it should be done is important. Everyone... Look, don't try to create a normalcy around that person. Everyone joins in, the kids come up and say, "Grandma, Grandpa, I love you, everything is great," they don't believe that.
Even if there are children, if they enter, they must enter slowly and be like this (Gestures). They must understand that situations are changing. If you don't even believe that, you put on a movie theater, you do this, you cook all their favorite foods, your bo... you know, bouncing around them so they feel like everything is cool, this is not the way. It's important... There's nothing wrong with death. It is only a part of our existence. It's just the way we drive it. It's very important. This is a fundamental duty of children towards their parents that when their time comes, they will turn out well.
The simplest thing is that if you become spiritual, they will initially resist, they will fight. But after that, it's a natural intelligence of a human being, "Someone who is half my age is not focusing on physiological and psychological compulsions and doing something to himself, what am I doing?" This will come naturally in any human being. So if you are doing some spiritual practice or something like that, it is good that you do it in front of your parents, even if they are not interested. Yes. Even if they resist and aren't interested, it's good to close your eyes and sit down.
Slowly you will realize, because there is a deep intelligence within this (Referring to yourself) that knows that this is not forever. it is in the body. Unfortunately, it hasn't made it to the head. Speaker: The next question is from Ananth Bhushan from Patna. "Namaskaram Sadhguru. Farmers in India are already poor and struggling. Now with the
virussituation, thousands of migrants are returning to their villages. Will this not put more pressure on farmers and farmland and lead to increased poverty? Is there a solution to this?" Sadhguru: Well, I hope this migrant movement is a temporary movement. The only concern is, if... if this had happened at the beginning of the lockdown, if we had designed and organized this at the beginning of the lockdown, and six weeks stay in the village and they came back, now would be good to start the whole industry and the business.
But now it is happening at the end of the lockdown. This is not very good. But no one knew how long the lockdown would last. Initially we think that it is fifteen days. So we try to keep them in the cities and provide accommodation, food and work. But when fifteen days didn't end... Everyone was fine until fifteen days. When the second lockdown came, they were alarmed, because most of the migrant labor in India, at least, is just men. It is a male population. Their wives and children are at home in the village, they continue to visit them.
When the second extension of the confinement occurred, it was when they became alarmed: "What is happening to our wives and children?" Because many of them couldn't pay the phone bills to stay in touch with their families. Now they wanted to go. They started walking, many of them walk two, three hundred kilometers, and people have cycled more than 1000 kilometers to reach their villages. Now they are organizing trains, but now we are planning to break the blockade, but now all the labor is moving away from the city, which is not the best way to do it. Is this a... some kind of problem for agriculture?
No. Agriculture will work well, because this has been a major problem in the villages: there is not enough labor to do any work. Now, if this labor goes back, it's going to be more than enough or excess, but still, of course, the labor… you know, the amount that has to be paid will go down. Therefore, the farmer could benefit, unless there is a full population influx. No, because in the city, it seems that when they go to the villages, they are going to expand to hundreds of villages or thousands of villages. So this migrant labor that looks like a big force in the city, when it goes further into the interior of India, it will spread to thousands of villages.
I don't think there is such a big influx except maybe in some... villages in North India. So that's not going to be a problem for agriculture, but it's going to be a problem for a number of businesses, households, and industries, and most of all, the construction industry, which is largely dependent on migrant labor. That's right... there are many challenges here. It is not a simple situation; It is a situation never seen before. The number of migrant labor in the country ranges from one hundred twenty to one hundred and forty million people. That many people move from one place to another is a recipe for many problems.
Unfortunately, sixteen of them were walking on the railroad tracks and moving forward, they were so exhausted that they slept on the tracks and were hit by a train in the night. So these kinds of unfortunate disasters are happening. But there is a certain resilience in this country that is capable of bouncing back, because our economy is built a certain way. This is not run by a few corporations or this or that, it is run by a billion Indians. So it has the ability to recover, because... our production and our consumption is largely within the nation itself.
Well, everyone has to come up with a lot of clever ways and innovative ways of doing things. The same old way of doing things won't work for anyone. It's not going to work even for us here in Isha. We're going to have to change a lot and innovate in a lot of different ways to keep what we're doing, and everybody has to do this, every company. Well, a business segment can become irrelevant, new possibilities can emerge, many, many things are there. These are difficult times without a doubt. So, as I said at the start of the lockdown, one concern is that people shouldn't be moving towards starvation.
Fortunately it has not happened. Well, people have struggled a bit, but everywhere, many organizations and state governments, they have all responded and made sure there are no starvation deaths. So if we make sure that one thing doesn't happen, we're all deprived of something we had six weeks ago, I think that's fine. I think it's okay. I know a lot of people are going to criticize me for this, but I think it's okay, we'll live on a little less, that's perfectly fine. It's ok with me. It should be fine for all of us that we'll be living on a little less than what we were making.
In many ways, human beings have been overkill. So now a little less is fine, but we have to make sure that no one starves, no one goes without basic food. If we take care of that, well, in a few months it will recover, but the problem is that the whole virus situation is very volatile right now. We were talking about breaking this lockdown on the 17th. When we talked about it two weeks ago, the deaths in India were less than a thousand. Today isabout 2,300. And luckily, it's all come down to one segment of the country. Mainly, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Delhi - these are the main hotspots, and unfortunately Tamil Nadu.
No, it's unfortunate everywhere, but I'm saying this is a one-off, they're all connected. When we say Maharashtra, for those of you who don't know the geography of this country: Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Delhi, they are all geographically connected. So it's happening there in a big way. Tamil Nadu is totally in the south but unfortunately it is happening here when the other states around us are free of it which has happened for certain reasons. I think at some point some study or investigation needs to be done as to why it happened the way it did. Anyway... But the number of deaths is increasing day by day.
I think right now every day about one hundred and twenty one hundred and fifty people are dying in the country from viruses. It's much better than the United States, but that's not... neither a consolation nor a solution, because once we broke the blockade... the United States didn't lock down as rigidly as we did. Despite the confinement this is happening. Once we relax the lockdown, no one knows. So I want all of you, all of you, wherever you are, to understand the real responsibility of maintaining social distance and all the other protocol that has been talked about repeatedly really starts from the 17th onwards.
Until now, most of us have been protected by isolating ourselves. Now, when we have to go out and other people start coming and going, that's when the real challenge happens. This is when how responsible and sensible we are really matters: once the lockdown ends, when the economic process begins. Well, will it get out of control or what will happen, we have to see. One of the pros and cons of this is, well, there's…always people compare this to the Spanish flu that happened in 1919, which killed over fifty million people, twelve to seventeen million people died just in India.
Spanish flu, why did it come to India? It didn't start in Spain, it got the name because after World War I there were a lot of transactions from that place, and it broke out there. Then it spread all over the place. But we don't have to compare this to the Spanish flu, because the Spanish flu largely killed people between the ages of twenty and forty. This is killing people who are generally over the age of sixty five, seventy years of age or other vulnerable population with certain inherent problems with their system. And another thing is the... the negative point of this is that it doesn't kill as quickly as the Spanish flu, but there is asymptomatic transmission in this.
With the Spanish flu, by the time you got it, we would know you had it, no one would come near you. But at that time we did not have any antibiotics. Now we have a variety of medicines, even if we get infected, there is a way to deal with it. So we are not seeing that level of deaths in the world. But to... to what extent our activities will be paralyzed, that's one thing. Well, there are a lot of people who say... you know, all kinds of people are throwing out scientific language saying that we will develop herd immunity.
To develop herd immunity, about sixty to seventy percent of the population would need to be infected. If this happens, we will eliminate a significant segment of the geriatric population: people over the age of seventy-five, we will almost eliminate that population in the world. And maybe children under the age of one, too, and all the vulnerable people, those who have gone through transplants, people with heart problems, diabetics and various other things that fall into this category. So we will be annihilating the entire vulnerable population. So herd immunity isn't really a solution that way, because that means we're deciding… the very word herd is something I can't accept when you mean human beings.
Herd immunity you talk about this in animals. We are talking about the same thing... about human beings, because the virus has come from animals right now, and all this. But you will eliminate the vulnerable population if you look at seventy percent infections worldwide. So how to stop it? Nobody has a clue. The only thing is that we have some ideas on how to slow down. And the best thing you can do is how to improve immunity in your system. We can give you a protocol on how to maintain this. In the ashram of... in the next three days, we'll be posting things about how to improve your immunity beyond what it is now, because from the 17th onwards, outsiders can start coming in, transactions will take place, we I'll keep it to a minimum, but it's still unavoidable.
We cannot be closed forever. This is true everywhere. So, some simple things are important... (Speaking aside: Do I have that sheet? Okay). Strict maintenance of social distancing is one thing. This must become your
religion. In agreement? That is if you're religious I'm saying. Otherwise this (Gestures) should become your sadhana. Well, in the yoga center everyone pops the neem ball in the morning, neem and turmeric. So in the next two days the green ball will disappear. Only the turmeric ball will be there, but there will be neem leaves. So, before going for your morning sadhana, you should take eight to twelve leaves and put them in your mouth, chew them and keep them in your mouth.
It is very important that it is in your mouth. It is most effective when it is in the mouth region. Therefore, you need to keep it in your mouth, chew it for an hour or two. Leave it there, don't wash it, don't drink it, leave it there in your mouth. Do your sadhana with it. Wherever you are... Arey, what? No, I'm just trying to avoid bad breath in the sadhana hall. So wherever you are, at least in this country, you find neem leaves, you can do that. There might be other herbs and things in other nations where there is no neem leaf, but you better find out, I don't want to suggest anything.
I'm not very familiar with that. The turmeric balls are mixed every day, if you have organic turmeric, we'll be... we've been working on this. Probably within a month, we will have a supply of well-grown organic turmeric, which may be a bit more expensive than regular turmeric, but is best eaten every day in the morning and left in your stomach. before eating anything for at least an hour. This will do wonders for you. And nelavembu kashayam, which we are distributing to all the villages, here to the workers and everyone, to the migrant workers and all that. One thing we have noticed is that in this part of Tamil Nadu where we are working, there has not been a single case in the last two months, not a single case.
One thing is the effective monitoring of social distance by us and the authorities, and nelavembu kashayam and some other things that we are doing. So if you stick to these protocols, you can very easily boost your immune system, because ultimately that's the only way you have it. Another thing is that this is the season of amla, which is the nallikai for the Kannada people, the bettad nallikai. So right now the season is on, not those huge, you know, golf ball type of amla, that's all hybrid amla, that's fine too if you can't find anything else. But otherwise, what grows on the hills is only about this size.
You just break an amla and put some salt on it and chew it. You have to keep it in your mouth, and it is most effective once again in your mouth. It should only be in your mouth for an hour or two. These simple things will greatly improve your immune system, and to drink hot water, about four or five times a day, just hot water or you can put some coriander or mint or you can add a pinch of turmeric or even a little lime juice and drink it regularly. And, well, in your living spaces, walking spaces, places you are using, Lizol spray, don't drink it, don't inject it.
And this will happen here at the Yoga Center. We are planning how to accommodate them and what to do. This may sound a bit awkward to many of you, but you have to do it. The vulnerable population in the ashram will be separated from the younger population. It is very important that this be done because what may be perfectly fine for one young person may be fatal for another person... may be fatal for the other person. So we want to separate the vulnerable population. This work is underway, you must also do it in your homes. If there are people over a certain age or have some other ailment that makes them vulnerable, it is important that you clearly separate yourself from them.
How long we don't know. Nobody knows. It is unknown. Right now, if you look at the Spanish flu the way it happened, it started in the month of January. He passed a certain toll. But it is... Again, the second wave occurred in the month of August, September, which is when the maximum number of people was taken. So certain doctors and scientists expect a second wave to occur between October and December in most nations. Whether it happens in India or not or whether it happens in all of India, because the weather conditions are very different from one place to another here in this country.
In the United States it can also be true, how the South of America works and how the North of the country responds, it may be different, we don't know for sure. Because they have shown resistance to survive in any type of climate. There was hope that when the summer came they would go down, but that is not happening. Now we have a new hope, when the monsoon comes it will come down. This is just our hope. The virus can learn to thrive in all of these conditions. There's no... There's no evidence that it's going down. So when the second wave comes, when we let our guard down and start to get active, when the second wave comes, that is when humanity can pay a very heavy price.
So that's why we want to separate the vulnerable population. Each of you in your homes, if you have people like that, you must keep a clear distance, an absolute distance. How long? Unfortunately we don't know how long, no one knows how long. Everyone is guessing. Don't make guesses with people's lives. And about migrant labor and everything that's going on. All of them don't necessarily have to go back to the city if you ask me. I've been talking to business groups and, you know, entrepreneurs from all over the world. Yesterday we had an event with TiE, today with a... with a news channel.
So this is something that I constantly try to convey, this has been... we've been doing this for over fifteen or twenty years. Lots of people are listening. Some action has happened, but not enough action has happened. The simple thing is this, the statistics say that around seventy-two percent of world investment is in around thirty-one or thirty-two cities or thirty-six cities, I think. When 72 percent of the world's wealth is concentrated in a few cities, why won't people move there? Naturally, they will move there. It is estimated that in the next ten years, before this virus it was estimated that in ten years about 1.6 billion people would migrate around the world.
I want you to imagine the horrors of that. 1.6 billion people dragging their wives and children and, you know, packing up their stuff, leaving the places where they've lived for generations, for hundreds of years and going somewhere else – the atrocities they go through are unbelievable. In India, it is estimated that two hundred and twenty million people will move from rural India to urban India. Well, those of you who live in cities, I want you to imagine, let's say ten cities in India, two hundred and twenty million people, even if you distribute evenly which won't happen, you can imagine the plight of those cities.
So one important thing that needs to happen is that the investments need to be spread out. This whole Manchester style construction industry, because that's where this system of mass production started and they took it everywhere, everything has to be done in one place, everyone comes to one place and works, this has to vanish. Right now, a lot of people are talking about working from home and stuff like that. But this is only relevant for a certain group of people who do a certain type of work, but for others they have to go somewhere. But that place does not necessarily have to be concentrated in a city.
It needs to spread. If we don't focus on this that in the seven hundred and odd districts of the country, if the industry doesn't spread, even if it's a little difficult to start with, if we don't do that, migration is going to go crazy. Another thing is agroforestry. Agroforestry is a sure way to stop migration, because one of the reasons migrants move is that every time there is a drought on farmland (it happens every five, six or eight years, there will be a big drought) . of migrations will occur, people will leave their land and go to the city, and will never return.
If you had long-term crops on your land, if you have trees standing on your land, you're not going to leave your land and walk away because there's money there. So agroforestry is one of the best ways to stop migration to cities. If we don't do that now, our cities will become uninhabitable. Not only in India, in almost all parts of the world, this migration, if these billions ofpeople start to move and accumulate in a city, no one can live well. This idea of a concentrated population is a hotbed even for a future pandemic. If everything... We usually like to call this a global village, if it really was a village, I tell you, the virus would be pretty helpless, because it's a city.
The city of Wuhan itself is supposed to have eleven million inhabitants. And how many cities have more than ten million inhabitants in the world? There are too many. Why have ten million people come to one place? Is it because they are in love with each other? I do not think. Simply because all the economic opportunities are concentrated in one place. This has to spread. If we don't spread this, not just in India, worldwide, the economic possibilities have to spread across geography, it's very, very important. Agroforestry is a significant step in this direction. Participant: This question is from...
Sadhguru: Oh, do we have time? Okay, last question, please. Participant: This question is from Ahuti. "Namaskaram Sadhguru, women are socially conditioned to protect themselves from childhood. Also in one of your talks you mentioned that the survival instinct is stronger in them. Will this self-preservation mentality of a woman be an obstacle for her in spiritual journey?" Sadhguru: This happened in Alandurai. For those of you who don't know, Alandurai is a town about twelve kilometers from here, where we are. Actually, it is named after an Englishman, who was a hunter in this region, an elephant hunter. His name is Alan. and at that time you had to call them master.
All the English, the local people, had to refer to them as teachers. So in the local language, it is durai. Then it is Alan-durai, it has become Alandurai. So, in this Alandurai, two donkeys were found, really, I mean four-legged. In case you're thinking I'm being nasty, no. Real donkeys they met. One was very well fed and doing well. Another one arrived, and he was haggard and looking rather pathetic. Then they started talking and asking each other, they have no worries about the virus, so they are talking about their own life. Then one asked the other: "Why are you stuck in this job with your owner?
Look, I ran away from my master. I am mine. I go and eat what I want. Look how I am. Look at you, a pathetic." creature." Then the other donkey said: "Yes, my master is a cruel man. He barely gives me food, he hits me, he mistreats me, he uses all kinds of bad words, he even mistreats my mother." It's a common habit, you know. Then the wealthy donkey said: "Why, why are you with this Type? Why do not you come? Come with me. Let's go." He said, "Look, he too...he also has a little daughter.
He also abuses her in a similar way. He doesn't forgive her mother either. And he also hits her with the same stick he hits me with. And he continues to
threaten her: "If you don't behave one day, I will marry you to this donkey." So my job has better prospects." The survival instinct is a very strong thing. Not only women have that. When you create situations where they might be physically vulnerable, then of course a woman's sense of self-preservation becomes very strong. This is why, this is why to create a civilized place where your physical weakness doesn't, when I say weakness, I'm not saying weak, weak like that.
I'm saying muscular weakness, compared to a man it doesn't work against her. It's very important. That's why a spiritual space is created in such a way, a woman doesn't need to think if she's a man or a woman, she can just do whatever she wants. This is very important because if you create a space where is physically
threatened, naturally, it will become very aware of its survival process So this is the business of every civilization, this is the business of every society, to create a situation in which that s who are physically weak, children or women or even men who are physically weaker, don't feel vulnerable.
This is very important. Well, a lot of men who are also just office people, if they see those muscular thugs hanging around the corner of the street, they will also feel… all spirituality will go away. You will also feel the survival instinct kicking in, because this is natural for everyone, but because a woman is vulnerable in so many different ways, it is absolutely important to create societies where there is no physical threat to her existence. or the basic dignity of it. If this is taken care of, well, the survival instinct works the same way in everyone.
In fact, I have always noticed that in the initial parts of spiritual growth, women always take very fast steps. Men, you know, they're trying to add two plus two, but their math doesn't…mathematical knowledge doesn't help them add two plus two, they keep fighting, fighting, fighting. But they will hit a mid-range, and the women will get a little distracted here and there. This happened with Gauthama. You... What's your name? It is a beautiful name. What is the female disciple of Gauthama? What is her name? Sangha, Sanghamitra. So Sanghamitra argued with Gauthama, "Why don't you let the women go into the monks' chapel?
They should also become monks. Gauthama, you know, he's not... he's not on social media, he wasn't." other people's opinions. So he said, "Look, if I only have male monks, this order will live for 2,500 years. That's what I'm planning. We have reached 2500 years now, still alive. But if I allow women, he will die in five hundred years." So she asked, "Why is that?" Then he said, "If only men... male monks are here, you can always attract them to Buddhahood." ..., that means a quality. But if you allow the woman to be here, initially she will go for Buddhahood, then she will want to go for the Buddha." So getting him to cross that intermediate step is a bit of hard work.
But if she crosses that, then when it comes to a sense of abandonment, a woman has a greater sense of abandonment than a man. It takes a lot more for a man to get to a sense of abandonment, because when he gets to that place, his sense of self-preservation is stronger than a female thing. At the moment when the woman feels well protected, she easily reaches a feeling of abandonment. See, she just traditionally looks at what's been going on or even now. You do one thing, you get a man married and you send him off. to her in-laws' house to live there, you will see how he struggles, because he cannot become part of anything, he has to be like that, she goes there, if they are good, she absolutely becomes part of that home.
She's more a part of that home than the people who live there so far. Yes, she will, because she has a sense of life. to step outside of her boundaries and become a part of what she is involved in. Therefore, it is a wrong way of looking at it. It's just that physical vulnerability is definitely higher in a woman. So, creating societies where this is not exploited is the most important thing. It's because of this physical vulnerability that all this... all kinds of humor in the world about how a woman is always lying about her age and stuff like that.
This happened. I think it's time we created a female version of Shankaran Pillai. It's okay, she went to a casino. She doesn't have a name yet. She went to a casino and she went on...in the...in roulette which she kept losing. Then the guy running the thing said, "I've seen this job plenty of times. Why don't you bet your age?" She said, "Okay, twenty-nine." She put it in, and then the spinner came to a stop at forty-two. She just passed out. Because age is vulnerability, physical vulnerability, that's why.
