For over six & a half-decade, my beloved late father and mother had done charitable work anonymously and without expectations of any return. They were among the most generous, caring and spiritual person known, not only to me but to many others whose lives they influenced. The foundations of this charity lie within the deep sense of responsibility that I feel on their behalf and the wish for continuation of the good works that had begun with them. Somewhere I met with the epitaph on a charitable man which has inspired me further, I cannot recollect the words, but here is the sense of it: 'What I spent I lost; what I possessed is left to others; what I gave away remains with me.'
I believe that every charitable work is a step closer to humanity and a step towards God. For me, charity starts with the sense of responsibility as a part of the global community, continues through the health, happiness and comfort it brings upon the fellow human being and ends with the sense of closeness that the giver feels towards the almighty. If we were to correct only two things in the world, the rest of the problems will take care of themselves, is what I feel. Health and Education are those two things. The foundation of a fulfilled life lies within the good health and once we are healthy we only need to have a proper education to help us lead a fulfilled life and to know wrong from right. I believe in the 'welfare principle'. Assist those who need help, and equally important, don't interfere and let those be who can take care of themselves.
It is crucial to remember that, the care of the underprivileged cannot be separated from the worship of God
