Who Is Your Hero? Why?

My uncle, Sai Krishna. We grew up watching him balance a busy life.  He built a successful business and ran a hotel for Satya Sai baba devotees visiting Puttaparthi. The cost of food and board were subsidized and sometimes even wavered depending on whether the visitor could afford to pay. He never forced anybody to go beyond their means, and even offered one free meal a week.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

The smile and laughter the comes from a relieved beneficiary.

What Project Would A Laptop Help You With?

Each year we visit colleges in Puttaparthi and in its nearby vicinity, meet with the Principals and get resumes of 20 students in need of laptops. We have assigned a young Engineering graduate to sift through the resumes and shorten the list to five per college. Finally of the lot, we choose ten genuine cases who need it the most and in the shortest time. Any laptops donated would be highly helpful to ensure we can continue to give it to these youth.

What do you love about this project?

Personally I love the sense of job satisfaction and peace of mind that I get when I do social work.

What Languages do you speak?

English, Hindi & Telugu.

Given a choice, would you prefer a Mac or PC?
