Let there be no barrier on imagination and exploration

To be or not to be, M.P. Pandit famously mused many years ago perhaps subtly decreeing in favour of the latter option. For more than half a century such pussyfooting has continued not to disturb the delicate balance in deference to the Masters’ sensibilities. So far, so good.

Time and technology, now, has created a larger arena where the old tightrope walking has to be jettisoned. The twin approaches need not be seen on two neat sides of the gender divide. Let there be no barrier on imagination and exploration. The whole world is out there waiting to be conquered by the Savitri Erans. No more hidings and hibernations. This is the hour to be heroic.
