This is quoted from a website called "All About Philosophy" -
"In philosophy departments throughout the world, the Blind Men and the Elephant has become the poster child for moral relativism and religious tolerance" and "if we know the Whole Elephant is out there, shouldn't this drive us to open our eyes wider and seek every opportunity to experience more of Him?"

After reading this, some philosophical questions sneaked into my mind: "How should the blind feel about it? Or the Hindustanis? If this the Poster Child for Moral Relativism and Religious Tolerance then isn't the way that blind people and Hindustanis are portrayed of particular relevance? Why the capital letter on Him? The poem is about not making presumptions, so why presume that the Elephant is God?"
