I am among those fortunate ones who have the privilege of being armed with good education. My school has not only taught me the three Rs- Reading, Writing and Arithmetic, but has also imbued in me sensitivity to become a responsible member of community and understand that key to happiness is to think beyond oneself, think of the larger interest and to give back to society, even if it is precious little.

I have been actively involved in educating children from the underprivileged section of the society, the less fortunate ones who lack means to get education. My school has been instrumental in developing in me environmental friendly and responsible behaviour by initiating environment protection activities and campaigns.

The learning in school has gone a long way and I have been given the proud privilege to be the Tetra Pack brand Ambassador for the next 29 years to save Antarctica from melting.

I have been zealously involved in initiating recycling of tetra packs. I have been actively involved in undertaking tree plantation drives, No Honking and Save Tiger Campaigns. To improve the standards of sports in India I have presented two papers at Doha Goals Conference.

It is my conviction that I can lead by example and not by precept. I uphold values of altruism and service. I would like to commit my life for a cause and be a change I want to see in others.
