My way or high way: This phrase is perfectly right in today’s world, else you won’t reach anywhere.

Citizen Journalism makes a difference: Yes it does. Be aware and make others aware too.

Best way to deal with Social Pressure: Do not pay too much attention to what others say. The more attention you pay, the more pressure they will mount. 

Best way to impart quality education: That can happen only when the education laws/ acts for SCs, STs, the underprivileged are implemented properly. Also, we need to understand the exact meaning of education. We all are in a hurry to attain a degree. Education has become a business today.

My way or high way: For me it’s about self-respect. I do bother about society but not to that extent.

Citizen Journalism makes a difference: Yes, it plays a major role. Through social networking websites, some of the commoners are doing a really great job. CJ is about spreading awareness.

Best way to deal with Social Pressure: Stay calm. Do your job. If you are good at your work, no matter how much people gossip about you, at the end of the day you will earn their respect.

Best way to impart quality education: High fee is the main problem. In rural areas, there is so much poverty that parents don’t want to send their kids to school. The number of dropouts from schools is quite high. In urban areas, many cannot study the subjects they are passionate about because of the high fee. Fee in educational institutions should be reduced.
