"Pluralism enables resilience and hope" – Acosta

You are I and I am you". These were the words of Hon. I Made Mangu Pastika, Governor of the Province of Bali, when he formally opened the CALD Bali Conference 2011 with the theme "Pluralism and Development in Asia: Issues and Prospects". He was describing a Balinese philosophy that when one hurts others, he also harms himself. This value of respect for others, he said, becomes integral in building and sustaining a modern civilization.
