I was just going through the excerpts from 'THE AUDACITY OF HOPE' published in TOI. In one word, the life of Barack Obama is truly #inspiring. It was mesmerizing to read how obsessed he was with the concept of choice. He once said that choice is a convenient shorthand for the way the past resolves itself. It just got me thinking.. and maybe, he is right. A choice is not exactly a free will. A choice is often circumscribed by ones background, childhood, socioeconomic situation etc. A choice is something that is free of all of this. A choice that is driven by all this is not choice.. it's more of a compulsion or a decision to make ones life better.
