Save the green cover and conserve forests. Save hills before they are referred in stories as once upon a time. Conserve energy by turning-off lights when not required. Avoid dumping disposables on railway tracks, open lands, river and sea shores to prevent landfills and to ensure a clean environment. Timely vaccination can protect precious little lives from vaccine-preventable diseases—Save a child, save a life, and save a dream. Refer government and regulatory advisories, directives, or guidelines. Keep first-aid kit at home and workplace for use in emergencies. If possible, try to help the elderly if you find that they are unable to cross the road due to heavy traffic. If possible, offer your seat to the elderly or those in need in buses and metro trains.


People from all walks of life are an inspiration. Yet this is an era where people are quick to make value judgements or there is a constant comparison. These days people don’t look for one goal. Once a goal is achieved, people plan for a higher set of goals. Once a dream is achieved, people plan for another set of dreams. One must always be conscious that success means different things to different people. People may or may not be in public life yet may be successful in various fields. Everyone has their own life path. However, despite varied challenges, my generation and the younger generation have more opportunities these days to achieve success or make a mark in various fields or in various ways. At the same time, we should not forget the elderly or previous generations who had achieved success in their respective professions or played an important role in a diferent and a more challenging era. My father was one such inspiration who achieved success after all odds after the loss of a parent at an young age. A stickler for rules yet compassionate and caring, he always encouraged his children to find their own path. My sister is a university topper in her stream. He was a caring husband and my mother was a constant support and pillar of strength to him. My mother is a constant source of inspiration and is my telugu teacher (She cleared the entrance examination for Bhasha praveena course in Telugu conducted by Andhra University. Languages: Telugu, Hindi, and English).
