The quote "In our childhood, simplicity was respected; today it is deplored" from B. K. Birla, is a remarkable statement.
Is this simplicity that one gets on other side of complexity or this side of complexity? We know there lies simplicity at both sides of the complexity mountain. It is really the simplicity that one achieves on the other side of complexity that has more value? Or is it so?
The citizens of the new world that Mr. Birla has categorized wants to be inside the complexity lest they are left behind.. may be there in lies the reason for deploring simplicity whether this side or the other side of complexity
