Good post Namit.
We saw this growing up in India, and I feel it is as relevant now.
I am now trying to expose our kids.. perhaps it will rub off in some good way..

Hi Namit

What a fabulous fabulous blog !!!
I'm hooked.
I saw that verison Carl Sagan pale blue dot before.
[ its not from Cosmos, but was made by a youtuber using clips from Dr Sagans audio book
version of ' Pale Blue Dot-Reflections on a mote of dust' ....a very good read.
I thought I'd send you this version [ link below] of Pale Blue Dot which was the original adaptation
made by an irish artist.
It was approved by his family and subsequently front paged by YouTube.
I think its great! I think your other readers might enjoy it too.
Ciao hun!
