Iain: Hello and welcome again to Conscious TV. I am Iain McNay, and my guest today is Gabor Harsanyi. Hello Gabor.
Iain: And Gabor is a Master of Silence. I think that’s a wonderful title, and we’re going to find out how he became a Master of Silence. He has really quite a story to tell. He’s lived quite a life and he’s been through a lot of things, and we’re going to get a feel of that and also, obviously, a feel of where he is these days. So, Gabor, you were living in Hungary when there was the 1956 uprising, when the Russian tanks came in. That must have been very hard for you.
Gabor: Yes. Most of my childhood was spent in an upheaval type of situation. I remember when I was really, really young, I was three years old, and there were flowers and plants next to our house, and I used to walk and be at total peace. And then, after that, a lot of troubles started. All kinds of trouble – the 1956 revolution came, and my father was part of that uprising, so we were pushed back and forth, back and forth. All kinds of emotions came up, all kinds of emotions. And then the revolution was beaten down, and my father was taken in and out of jail for a few years after 1956. So that was really dramatic and emotionally shaking. It was an emotional shake-up.
