What Are You Most Passionate About?

I love playing sports and games. Volleyball, football, cricket are my favorites. Last month the hospital where I work had a big cricket match and my team came in second place.

Who Is Your Hero? Why?

Satya Sai Baba is my hero. He has helped poor and needy people so much. He built many educational institutions and a created a clean drinking water project that serves 800 villages. He also established the Super Specialty Hospital where I work. Sai Baba established this big hospital in a rural area where there are many poor people that specializes in cardiology, urology, orthopedics and opthamology. He is my inspiration.

What Is Your Favorite Sound?

The sound of birds early in the morning. It’s a nice feeling to hear when you wake up.

Short Description Of Project

I have been working at Sai Baba’s Sri Satya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences (the Super Specialty Hospital) for 17 years. I manage the industrial warehouse that houses the lighting and engineering parts to support the facilities. We have 60 electricians and mechanics who work full-time to ensure that all of the hospital’s equipment is functioning properly.

Having a laptop would save time and make my job a lot easier. Doing things manually means you have to look through books and books if you want to find a part. A computer would allow me to search for things easily. We write receipts for everything by hand, but with a computer, you can just print it out!

I also really want a laptop so that my two daughters Sai Rajeshwari (12), Sai Poojitha (10) can use it.

I want them to have many opportunites when they grow up and knowing how to use a computer will serve them greatly. They will only be allowed to use it for educational purposes – to study science, do research on the internet and do small projects for school. They are very excited about the idea of having a computer.
