Poverty, unemployment and ignorance are the three biggest problems in India. But any idea what causes these three problems? A boy finally spoke up and invited Mr. Srikanth takes her on stage and gives her chocolates. Because of laziness, we keep putting things off and eventually the task is abandoned.

“I was born unknown and people around me, including my family, doubted whether I could achieve anything in life, and they thought I was a burden to society. But, I proved them wrong with my patience and hard work. When someone said that I can’t do something, I took it well and I used extra efforts to achieve it,” he said. .
Mr. Srikanth told the children about the need to pursue their passion with full commitment. “A low goal is wrong and those who aim for heaven can climb a mountain. We all have the same brain but the difference between great men like Dr. Abdul Kalam and Steve Jobs and others used their brain to its full potential while the latter only used a part of it,” he said.
When a student asked him if he thought about quitting, Mr. Srikanth, “Every day. But I am determined to overcome the difficulties as I have chosen my goal and I have to succeed there. Running from a problem does not take the man elsewhere.”
