"The stirring within and continuously reminded by my most revered father, was my conscience always telling me, whatever you are, you owe it to the society. I have the conviction that only by doing selfless service to the needy and the poorest of the poor, one can achieve a true sense of satisfaction and happiness; the highest purpose of life."

This was a humble tribute to the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi on his birth anniversary.
