When an acquaintance asked me which religion we have chosen to raise our children in (we are an indo-german family), I told him no religion. His wife was shocked and asked then what values are they going to have -now that is a different question. I told them I hope to raise my children with moral values and that they develop a form of spirituality. This interview is that kind of hope.
