The Lions Club organised an Eye camp for the poor in Faridabad on the 8th July .Around 150 people got their eye checkup done and will be provided with spectacles or surgeries .Followed by Tree plantation in the same area it was an awareness campaign and ode to nature .
The youth empowerment and motivational workshop that I took with the high school children of the community was a success only because I could read from their faces and body language that they paid attention to every word I shared with them ! These kids had the fire to make a decent life ,to succeed ! When reciprocated by the youth in this manner I truly feel it is worthwhile to work for the society and bring on a Shinning INDIA .
IT was the most beautiful manner to close the last day before my birthday .So many new beginnings !

Social Awareness seminar ..Growing Conflicts In families

Mother Teresa said ,’If you want to work for world peace,go home and love your families .
Many speakers expressed their thoughts on the causes,impacts and way forward regarding conflicts in families .
Some expressed concern ,some alarm on the present family structure .
I just said it in two lines that the least each one can contribute to the society is by raising good children and taking care of their old parents .
To me these are the biggest responsibilities within a family .
The main speaker filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt stole the show with his heartfelt experience.IMG_1684
