We want our children to lead a life of balance, therefore we encourage them to excel in academics and in sports. But it is important to be able to put into perspective our privileges and be considerate towards others, for a life of balance.

Volunteering and doing philanthropic work, helps the youth to develop affinity towards society and it will transform them into better citizens. It makes one feel responsible for their actions. It develops individuality and positivity in life. It also makes you feel capable of bringing change.
