Interviewer: “How was your visit to the disability center of K.D Vora Home for Blind Women?”

Dr. Parag Vora: “ It was lovely! I loved spending time with children there. In morning, I visited the centre with my family where we delivered free food supplies for the disabled children. We went to the headmaster’s room and learn about the ongoing efforts and things they have been struggling with. We also get to interact with students and children. We ate lunch in the school cafeteria with them. It was one of glorious days in my life!”

Interviewer: “Looks like you had a good time. What made you help children with visual challenged problems?”

Dr. Parag Vora: “Women are progressing greatly in modern society. I believe in women empowerment and they have the power to revolutionize the world. I believe it is responsibility of people with resources to help less privileged groups and communities. With my small contribution, blind children will gain access to learn new things and become self-sufficient. We all are human beings and we should repay our society with good deeds.”
