In continuation with my Learning Series; adapted from a motivating and inspiring write-up which I felt would be very useful for both students and the Society as a whole with day – to – day instances, to encourage positive thinking  and improve efficiency !!

SOCIAL  RESPONSIBILITY (THE JOY IN HELPING) : As members of society we take a lot from it in many forms. We also have to give back to it. This is social responsibility.

“HELPING HANDS ARE BETTER THAN PRAYING LIPS.”  How does it feel to help a person in distress and see his eyes fill up with un-shed tears while his lips open up into a tremulous/shaky smile? You really feel good, right? This kind of help you extend to people in need makes you a kinder and more responsible person.  Sometimes you serve others because it is good for the  society. This is what individual social responsibility is all about!


A DEVASTATED VIZAG…  AFTER HUD HUD :  These are no rescue teams ….  These are people like you and me… the common people!


CHENNAI FLOODS …    “I kept standing near the window, waiting for my husband. Suddenly, I saw four young men going through the water on the other side of the road. I thought they were the rescue people sent for me. I called out for help. At first they did not hear me but when they passed by a second time they did. I asked if they were from the rescue team.”     “We are not a rescue team ma’am but we will help.   Tell us what you want,” said one of them.”   These were four unknown boys.


“Success has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It’s what you do for others.”    -Danny Thomas

Observe how these youngsters give back to the society.
1. The young and determined Varun Sharma has taken up the responsibility to bring electricity, education and empowerment to a remote tribal village in Odisha.
2. Nupur Ghuliani , prospective charted accountant gave up a lucrative career to work in rural India.
3. Shalini Krishnan quit a high-paying job to teach tribal students.
4. 2 young engineers transformed a Bihar village.
5. A young engineer from BITS is helping farmers in remote villages of MP.
6. Abhinav Sharma a final-year Masters student in Mathematics at BITS Pilani, helps with educational/ recreational material from the cities reach children in villages/slums across the country.
7. Mannika Solanki, Student from Delhi volunteers for CRY. She says that CRY motivates orphaned children to go to government schools.
