“The aam aadmi in India is that person who does not have a connection to the system. Whether he is poor or rich, Hindu, Muslim, Sikh or Christian, educated or uneducated, if he is not connected to the system, he is an aam aadmi.We call him the common man but in fact he is unique.
He has immense capabilities, intelligence and strength. He builds this country every day of his life and yet our system crushes him at every step… we will never build a nation until we start recognizing and respecting the common man. We will never build a nation until we build a system in which this man’s progress is based not on who he knows but on what he knows. This is the challenge of our generation.”
