Hyderabad, Sept.17 (Hydnow): Governor Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan today said that offering selfless services to the underprivileged and other downtrodden sections is a noble activity.
She said that those who dedicate their life for such selfless service of others are real great people.
On the occasion of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s birthday celebrations, the Governor conducted a virtual felicitation to five eminent activists-Prof. Shantha Sinha (MV Foundation), Dr. Mamatha Raghuveer (Tharuni Organization), Sunitha Krishnan (Prajwala foundation), Dr. Anitha (Gandhi Hospital) and Dr. Vijay Kumar Goud (Disabled Foundation Trust and Ravi Helios Hospital-in appreciation of their services.
Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan said that it takes courage and positive attitude to serve the needy and thus risking our life and well being.
Expressing concern over the plight of children and exploitation of women still prevalent in some areas, the Governor pointed out that poverty was the root cause of the problem and we must all do concerted efforts to end the vicious circle of poverty, unemployment, backwardness and exploitation.
“When I was doing my PG House Surgeonship at Tanjavur Medical College, I was moved by the plight of people who used to bring in their ailing children in bullock carts due to poverty and lose the Golden Hour advantage in some cases.
During my further studied there in Canada, I found ailing kids being shifted in helicopters. That was one of the motivating factors for me to enter into politics to serve the underprivileged,” she added. (Hydnow)
