BY ROHIT MALHOTRA
IN ATLANTA

Community is so much bigger than one's individual self and this is something that seems to have been forgotten here in the US of A. Rohit Malhotra's grandfather was a hero of his, a teacher in a remote village in India, who instilled this ideal of what community is, in him as a small child. The polar opposites of 'community' and of 'government' (at least after this election) are what Rohit grew up loving. Listen as he speaks about the importance of local government and trust has in our communities.
