And That’s the Problem There is 1 comment Add yours Brajesh on 8 May, 2017 at 13:40 Reply After a very long time I watched a video on development sector in full. As the introducer mentioned riveting and fact based presentation. I have to watch it again a few times to analyse your points in a better way but a very good point I gathered was “we have to come up with a mechanism which outsmarts our hearts.” I will think deeply about this but I can say that the appearances are important. And seeing people in distress has a deep impact on our minds. And probably our measurements for impact are biased . For e.g. one of the most distressing pictures I have seen is the kid who drowned while trying to escape to Turkey from Syria. And we then try to respond instantaneously. It becomes a very tough choice. I can only say this much now. Post a new comment Cancel replyCommentNameEmailUrl Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
