A sculpture that sculpts itself

I just returned after spending a few hours at the Akshardham Cultural Centre, New Delhi. While the whole centre in general, including the temple and the audio-visual presentations, is very inspiring, one particular presentation in specific affected me very deeply.

This was an exhibit depicting a sculpture sculpting itself! It took five years for seven thousand artisans to build Akshardham, but how many artisans are needed to sculpt one's destiny, questions the presenter. One. Just one. We humans are sculptors sculpting ourselves. Only I can shape my destiny and only you can shape yours.

How true! So, let us pay more attention to how we sculpt ourselves and make a good job of it :)
