The Number Craze

Author: Dr. Ali Khwaja

Perma-link for article:

I often wonder why numbers are so important to us: businessmen want more customers, multinationals set ambitious yearly targets, religious gurus want more and more followers, ordinary people want more friends on Facebook – in fact we patronize those who have large number of people accepting someone. Even with a religious Guru I have heard people say, “you know, thousands come to listen to him.” I would love to listen to someone who has the time and patience to talk to me alone. I am very happy if two people read this little write-up of mine, and I am grateful if one genuine friend sends me a greeting. In fact I feel the lesser the number of people greater is the personal touch, the individuality and the warmth. But perhaps I am a small minority who thinks that way (see, numbers again!)
