"I believe that all I have got in my life is because of the goodness of others – the doctor who brought me into this world, my parents who nurtured me, my teachers who inculcated the knowledge and values in me, my wife who supported me, friends who were there for me. After providing financially for my wife and kids to lead a reasonable life, I would like to do what I can to make the world a better place, and hence am signing up to this."
