I owe my sincere gratitude to AAS that offers me an opportunity to participate in its webinar series amid the Covid-19 pandemic and a global power transition, Nelson Mandela said, and I quote, “A good head and good heart are always a formidable combination. But when you add to that a literate tongue or pen, then you have something very special.” Indian Society in general and AAS in particular have many good hearts and good heads to make a better world for everyone through literate tongue and pen at the UN Security Council.
