Depending on the context, depending on the outcome, choose your paradigm. You see, because both the paradigms are human constructions. They are cultural creations, not natural phenomena. And so the next time you meet someone, a stranger, one request: Understand that you live in the subjective truth, and so does he. Understand it. And when you understand it you will discover something spectacular. You will discover that within infinite myths lies the eternal truth. Who sees it all? Varuna has but a thousand eyes. Indra, a hundred. You and I, only two.”

– Devdutt Pattanaik

“Gender matters. Men and women experience the world differently.”
“My own definition of feminist is: a feminist is a man or a woman who says:’Yes, there is a problem with gender as it is today and we must fix it, we must do better.’”

– Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, at TEDxEuston.
