    On the dot Suku .. I get goosebumps everytime I catch a snippet of Martin Luther King saying … “I have a dream”.

    I get similar feelings whenever I get to see Gandhiji’s salt satygraha march. Amazing times and amazing people!!

    Goosebumps – that’s the word i was looking for. I completely agree on the salt march as well.
