  • Thank you Mr. Ali Anani for your comment on my presentation. You said it very beautifully that the presentation not only got your legs walking, but also your mind as well. Just a point. It is our Mind that makes our bodies move, because our bodies cannot move by themselves, and thus keeps us active, physically. Our Mind, at the speed of thought, moves freely in all directions. Hence, the greater need for obtaining better control over Mind. Walking helps in keeping us healthy, not just physically but also mentally. Of course, there are methods like Meditation that keep our mind both active and calm. I think this is what you meant when you beautifully stated that 'we need walking minds as well'. Thank you once again, for sparing your valuable time. Wishing you all the best.
