Emperor Meiji

I was in Tokyo for a week. The country surprised me on many fronts in a good way.  The person who gets credit for its modernization is Emperor Meiji The progress of the country in becoming a superpower goes to him. I visited the Meiji Shrine on the last day of my stay. It was in the middle of a city and built after his death. I get goosebumps thinking at how a person changed the fate of future generations with his farsightedness. So much to learn about him for all of us.

We are living in a divided world where democratic leaders are busy building their statues instead of changing our fate.
