HER MESSAGE FOR TODAY’S YOUTH:
“There is absolutely no dearth of talents, capabilities and potentialities in today’s youth. Always remember that the world doesn’t care and is not changed a bit by how much you know, rather it gets impacted by what you decide to do with what you know. Ask yourself what is that one problem/ issue that you would want to solve which would create a real difference in the lives of the people around you. The answer to this question would help you to ascertain the purpose of your life. Try to create a greater purpose for all that you do and stand for. Your purpose will eventually act as a strong magnet to pull people towards your vision. Your purpose will ultimately decide your destination. Follow your passion, believe in yourself and continue to dream big – and then even sky is not the limit for you.”
