Bologna, Italy: I believe that the courage to be who you feel to be, is very important. This means accepting ourselves as we are and not try to hide it. However, why does that include showing your differences by putting pins in your nose, ears, cheeks and lips? In India one can say that it is part of our culture and traditions. In China, one can say that it is natural acupunture and it helps you to remain healthy, but the young people in Europe, why do they give pain to themselves like this?

बोलोनिया, इटलीः मेरे विचार में "हम तो ऐसे ही हैं" वाला साहस बहुत आवश्यक है. यानि हम जैसे हैं उसको छुपाने की कोशिश न करना, बल्कि उसे गर्व से स्वीकारना.  पर अपनी भिन्नता को नाक, कान, गाल, होठों में पिन घुसवा कर क्यों दिखाते हैं? भारत में कह सकते हैं कि यह हमारी परम्परा व सभ्यता का हिस्सा है, चीन में कह सकते हैं कि इस तरह से प्राकृतिक एकूपँक्चर होता है व शरीर स्वस्थ्य रहता है, पर यहाँ यूरोप में नव युवक व नवयुवतियाँ इस तरह से स्वयं को कष्ट क्यों देते हैं?

Bologna, Italia: Credo che il coraggio di essere quello che uno si sente dentro è molto importante. Vuol dire, mostrarci come siamo e non cercare di nasconderlo. Ma per mostrare le nostre differenze, perché dobbiamo mettere i pin nei nostri nasi, orecchie, guance e labbra? In India, uno può dire che ciò fa parte delle tradizioni e della cultura. In Cina uno può pensare che è come agopuntura e ci aiuta a restare sani, ma i giovani europei, perché si fanno soffrire in questo modo?
