"We inspire you, you inspire the World"
"Friends, we can see a beautiful connectivity between heart, character, nation and the world. How to inject righteousness in the human heart? This is indeed the purpose of human creation – that is divinity. We are going through a complex situation as many of us are completely at war with ourselves, with society and with nation. At every instant there is a war in our mind, whether we should go in one direction or another. Whenever there is dilemma, we must seek the wisdom from the Almighty to lead us to the path of righteousness through education with value system." Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam – President of India
