“Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, and ask yourself if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him. Will he gain anything by it? Will it restore him to a control over his own life and destiny? In other words, will it lead to Swaraj for the hungry and spiritually starving millions?”
This attitude has to be incorporated in every Indian who strives for making other people’s lives better. An attitude of social service is very much required in these trying times. If every human lends a hand for making some lives better, then there won’t be any more problems to worry about. We have the potential, we have the people, people have hearts, so why don’t those hearts feel the vibes of the pangs of suffering people? If we have to prove to the world that we are human, we must not forget the interests of others along with our interests. There are several ways in which you can lend a helping hand. As our beloved Former President of India A P J Abdul Kalam once said in his speech; every student who has finished his studies of under-graduation must spend time helping the poor children of India mostly in villages for one year by educating them. In these busy lives of students, we can at least take time in the four years of our engineering studies to educate or help poor children and make them see the light of life. Education for all has been made compulsary by the Indian government but how many children are really going to school? It is a very small percent. If we develop interactive ways to inspire the parents of those children, we will definitely be able to make some difference. So why don’t we start working from today?
